Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Sep 07, 2017 - Critically-acclaimed company, Mind the Art Entertainment, kicks off their 10th season with a new production of their award-winning musical WHISKEY PANTS: THE MAYOR OF WILLIAMSBURG, set to open Sept. 28th at HERE.
In a land where the whiskey is always flowing, an ambitious young painter is faced with a life-altering choice: Give up on her dreams and embrace a carefree life or lose her father, the powerful Mayor of Williamsburg. Will she leave behind the only family she’s ever known? Or will she discover that in Williamsburg, it’s easier to drink than to think? From the New York Innovative Theater Award-nominated team behind FATTY FATTY NO FRIENDS comes a new musical about hope, family, whiskey, and reconciling the dreamer within.
“Whiskey Pants creates a full alternate universe that is equal parts quirky and dystopian. A strong musical that looks great and sounds even better.”— ONSTAGE

“Whiskey Pants is not just an excellent show, it is the perfect answer to the accusation that there is no new musical theater of quality being made.” – OFF THE BEATEN TRACK THEATER
