The Off-Broadway sensation, The Water Coolers will offer their hilarious look into the world of adulthood at the Payson High School Auditorium at 7 p.m., Friday, March 16.
The Water Coolers debuted in New York in 2000 and opened Off-Broadway in the fall of 2002. Originally created as a comedy act for corporate meetings, the move to theatre was inevitable. The show takes a long laughing look at modern life, from technology (“Blackberry” sung to the tune of “Proud Mary”) and travel (“Flying in Economy”) to the daily grind (“And Hold Please”).
Based in New York City, The Water Coolers has become a working home for some of the finest and most exciting comics and singers in professional show business. Resumes among current cast members include performances at top comedy clubs like Igby’s, the Improv, the Comic Strip, The Broadway Comedy Club, and either the Broadway or Broadway touring production of such shows as Rock of Ages, Spamalot, Wicked, The Lion King, In The Heights and Les Miserables among many others.
Writer/Director Thomas Michael Allen (“Tony ‘n’ Tina’s Wedding”) collaborated with theatrical and business personalities in the creation of the show.
