Over the years, the most often asked question of me is "What is The Brewery Follies?" That's a hard question to answer because in some ways I'm not sure myself. So, I've given it some careful thought and here's what I've come up with.
Well, first of all The Brewery Follies is a place where you can sit back, have a cold beverage, whether it's a Montana Micro-brew or a soda pop, and enjoy a cabaret style musical revue. There are lots of musical numbers, comedy sketches, and just plain silliness.
We try to have fun. Our show is risque, bawdy, and can involve social and political commentary. We don't have any violence in the show, there's no nudity, and we don't use the most offensive "four letter words". However, we don't tell people that our show is squeaky clean. We don't try to be "folksy" or family oriented. The Virginia City Players at the Virginia City Opera House present a wonderful and clean family experience. At The Brewery Follies we do not make it our mission to perform a family show.
We're different, if our nation's President is engaging in "sexual relations with that woman" you can be certain we're going to make lots of jokes about it, and we did. We don't use many of the "four letter words", but our jokes refer to what those "four letter words" mean. We say our jokes have double meanings. Those double meanings often take the form of a witty phrase, slight gesture or the simple raising of an eyebrow.
People ask "can we bring our kids to the show?" That depends on you, how you are rearing your kids, and what you allow your kids to see ... "the rest of the time". If your kids watch Family Guy, Desperate Housewives, Saturday Night Live, or any number of reality shows on TV ...then, there "ain't" anything in our show that'll surprise them.
Simply put, kids are welcome. We think it is harmless for kids, if you don't mind exposing them to an environment where adults drink beer, laugh heartily, and may be called upon to make complete fools of themselves.
So, what is The Brewery Follies? it's an Absurd, Wacky, Zany, Fun-Filled, Contemporary Comedy Revue with music in a Cabaret Atmosphere that contains Biting Parody and Naughty Political/Social Satire. When you come to see The Brewery Follies be prepared to let your hair down and unburden yourself from the everyday world politically correct blues. Leave your uptightness at the door and get ready to have yourself a ball.
