On April 1st Esther’s Follies turned 41 years young! There is much to celebrate this time of year, what with Easter and Passover, but also our co-founder Shannon Sedwick’s birthday coming up and springtime weather here in Austin, Texas. Let’s be honest though- we are mostly excited about springtime temperatures…the one time of the year we love to soak up sunny, breezy 75 degree days but can’t breathe outside because of the pollen. We are also pretty excited about new material in the show and all the happenings around the theater.
There is no end in sight to our Trumpster Saga musical spectacular as daily firings in the White House keep the President from feeling bored. Sarah Huckabee Sanders tries to wrangle what staff is left, along with the Trump Ex-wives Club and a mob of angry porn stars led by superstar Stormy Daniels. Who comes to save the day? You wouldn’t believe us if we told you. Come see for yourself!
We are spotlighting all kinds of political celebrities right now including Paul Ryan and his new Congressional Work-out, Hillary Clinton in her Everything’s Coming Up Anything But Roses lament and good old Rick Perry (remember him?) in Five Flags Over Texas.
Not to mention the Toys R Us gang: Barbie, Ken and GI Joe scheming an exit plan from their bankrupt home and the latest in Computer Dating where we show you all the hacks to getting off online.
It is a great time to grab one of our beautiful coffee table books before they are all sold out. Author Jesse Sublett takes the reader on a journey through Esther’s past and present with backstage insider dirt, fascinating history and fun tidbits. It’s beautiful storytelling and visually stunning, featuring both archive and new photography. Order one here on our website or stop by the theater.
We can tell with the warmer weather that summer is on it’s way and our School of Comedy Summer Camps registration is open! Our four week-long camps are filling quickly. We offer classes in stand-up comedy, improv, acting and magic for ages 8-16. At the end of the week the kids put on their own mini-Esther’s show that does not disappoint. Register the funny kid in your life here.
