*Please note that the audience may be asked to climb stairs and traverse dimly lit spaces. Audience is also welcome to experience encounters with characters, chess matches, and groovy tunes from the main level of the theater.*
Said John Bechtold, the creator of the piece, "Welcome to Charley’s - a cozy, one-night-only escape from your present-day cares. Join us as Charley invites you into an evening of tropical cocktails and mocktails, dreamy music, cozy meetings over chess games - and, for the adventurous - an unexpected theatrical journey into the mind of its owner.
With a bar menu crafted by expert mixologist Sam Perry, Charley's has something for everyone - top-shelf drinks, cozy corners, and a vibrant social scene. Charley's exists in a time before cell phones, so enjoy the escape from those objects, too, for the night, as you make new friends, be that over a chess board or a Mai Tai - or both!
If you wish, you may spend your evening around the bar or in a long game of chess (beginners and experts alike are welcome). But for those that are out for a little adventure, a puzzle lies hidden in the space that, when solved, sends you on a special escapade that connects you more closely to Charley."
