So before you read this, I must warn you -- I didn't actually make it through the whole show. I had a few pre-show cocktails at the Alibi Room (a must do for anyone attending a performance at the Firehall) and my bladder simply couldn't contain itself for the entire hour. I was alright until 8:37 (the first time I checked the time on my phone) but my last note about the show simply says I HAVE TO PEE at 8:46. At this point I not so stealthily made my way out of the back of the theatre and relieved myself. Back in the lobby, I realized I was the lucky individual who would have first pick of the delicious opening night food provided by Two Chefs & A Table. Every cloud has a silver lining.
