The Minnesota-grown hit show “Triple Espresso—a highly caffeinated comedy” will perform at A Center for the Arts on Friday, Nov. 1 at 7:30 p.m. as part of its first-ever Minnesota tour.
“Triple Espresso” has delivered laughs to more than 2 million people in six countries — including in multiple Minnesota cities — and has performed in the Twin Cities every year since 1995. An Arts Tour Minnesota grant, received by a collaboration of presenting venues, makes possible this season’s tour.
The show tells the story of three hopeful entertainers whose bid for showbiz fame and fortune ended in four minutes of magnificent failure on national television. Combining magic and comedy, original music and parodies, physical humor and a touch of audience involvement, it’s an experience not quite like any other. The laughter is infectious—bring your kids and grandma—and your date—to this one. You’ll want to share it.
Triple Espresso was written by Minnesotans Bill Arnold, Michael Pearce Donley and Bob Stromberg and directed by William Partlan. Cast for the tour are: Patrick Albanese as deadpan magician Buzz Maxwell, John Bush as energetic goofball Bobby Bean, and Paul Somers as the eager-to-please lounge singer Hugh Butternut. The three are veterans of Triple Espresso productions in Minneapolis, Des Moines, Iowa, San Diego, California, Dublin (Ireland) and other cities.
Triple Espresso is produced by The Daniel Group, LLC, a Minneapolis-based provider of top-quality professional theater and other entertainment, whose mission is to provide excellent, wholesome productions that positively impact audiences.
