Before I Die

“Before I Die I Want to ______.”

Write your anonymous response on a card at the theater just before the show, and drop it in the basket.  The actors randomly choose cards just before the performance and use them to inspire a montage of hilarious and heartbreaking scenes and monologues.  Join us and provide your bucket-list dreams to catalyze this Fringe-favorite unscripted theater ensemble!

“Fearless” “Truly inventive” “Raw, smart, funny!” “Improv or not, this is great theater… go see this!”

bidoneIn addition to submitting your responses at the performance itself, check out our Before I Die… interactive chalkboard mural!  Anyone can write on the board for free; we’ll add some ‘off-the-wall’ responses to our theater audience responses to inspire each performance.  The board is located on the outside-facing wall at Front St Cafe and Beer Garden (, Sept 5 – 25.   For more info on Before I Die… walls, go to

The reviews are in!

“The ensemble created beautiful scenes of sincerity and compassion and also created ridiculously hilarious scenes that were outrageous and wacky. It was good old-fashioned fun and I couldn’t help but sit there and secretly hope that my card would be the next one to be drawn. What do you want to do before you die? Add to that list… see this show.”
