Fargo and The Big Lebowski are likely in your esteemed movie collection, but have they ever prompted you to burst into song and dance?
For the performers and choreographers behind Coen Brothers: For the Record, the answer is most definitely.
Spend the night with Walter, The Dude, Marge (spot-on Minnesotan accent included) and the Soggy Bottom Boys singing along to songs from Coen classics, including “Somebody To Love,” “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In),” and “The Boxer.”
Come hungry – while the Broadway-caliber performers dance around you (it’s intimate), you’re encouraged to nosh on Kobe sliders and panchetta pizza with carmelized onion, gorgonzola cheese, crème fraiche and fig jam.
There are five specialty Coen-centric drinks too, like the tequila-based Burn After Drinking, though the obvious choice isthe Caucasian – with Absolut Vodka, Kahlua and cream, it’s practically the Dude’s signature White Russian.
