Rainbow Deli Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Saturdays. Continues through June 25 2011

Rainbow Deli consists of eight veteran improvisers who know that it's better to risk something and fail (and quickly move on to something else) than to stick to what's safe and flat-out suck. Since the audience suggestion at the show I saw--"Osama Bin Laden's compound"--was a bit obvious, there having been some talk about it on the news last week, Rainbow Deli didn't waste any more time than necessary on it, quickly heading off to places like the Fudge Hut in Saint Louis's Union Station, a poorly attended block party, and the White House circa the Kennedy administration. This is an energetic, cohesive octet, devoid of weak links, and a nice fit for your basic Saturday-night BYO-12-pack-of-cheap-beer crowd. --Brian Costello

Price: $10
