The Book of Mormon

Tues-Thurs at 7:30 pm, Fri at 8 pm, Sat at 2 and 8 pm, Sun at 1 and 6:30 pm. Through Aug 10.

"Yes, it’s expensive, but it’s so fucking good, you should absolutely save up to go. My experience at the last Book of Mormon tour was one of the greatest theatrical experiences of my life.

(David Schmader) $25-$545.

Every Tues at 7:30 pm.

Website

Comedy Womb The rules of this pro-lady standup night are refreshing in their simplicity: no misogyny and no heckling. Based on the size, quality, and diversity of the crowds it attracts, the rules work. Every Tuesday night, fans pack the Rendezvous Grotto to watch two and a half hours of comedy, about half of which is delivered by women. Having so many women onstage and in the crowd makes male comics more mindful of their sets and their audience, while reinforcing what should be obvious: Women can be just a... more » $5.
