Special thanks to everyone who came to check out our three part parade of miserable misogynistic masculinity, The Virilogy!

And thanks to all the press outlets who gave us such nice quotes to decorate our website with!

"This show has fantastic energy, and I was thoroughly engaged the whole time. Clawson's writing captures the balance between the easy banter of a group of old friends and the awkwardness of their attempts to discuss their feelings. Of course, the writing is brought to life as Cagney, Murgittroyd, and Hernandez let the action flow organically. "

"As satire (and comedy) The Virilogy is immensely entertaining...Every bro mythology is faithfully reproduced and skewered with rapid fire jokes and gut busting physical comedy. It's like a live version of Archer, Family Guy, and Tosh.0 wrapped in a Taco Bell Dorito Taco."

"Ben Clawson's clever dialogue is well executed by director Artem Yatsunov, as well as the talented cast who know how to milk every possible laugh from every quip, and time each joke perfectly."

"An enormously well-written well acted, well directed play so full of laughs, heart, and surprises that the drinking-game part became secondary."
