happy hour

"Breaks all the rules of theater..." - DC Metro

Dressed in a pair of everyday men’s suits, Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass crash an after-work office party playing two instantly familiar guys. It's a subversive move, leading audiences to question our expectations of women on stage with a free drink in their hands and microwave popcorn flying through the air.  Hosted by Robert Saenz de Viteri with a podium full of Old Fashioned's and dollar store decor, Happy Hour continues to run in NYC and tour the country.

Happy Hour breaks all the rules of theater… it offers not merely terrific entertainment, but more than a measure of poignancy, a sense of loss even amid the fun-and-games.” – DC Metro

“Like all good happy hours, this one has plentiful munchies and libations. And like the best ones, it offers abundant laughter.” – The New York Times


Happy Hour is made possible through the generous support of Mertz Gilmore Foundation, Jody and John Arnhold, public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the NY State Council on the Arts with the support of Governer Andrew Cuomo and the NY State Legislature, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
