The reviews are in! Audiences and critics are "entranced" by THE RAVAGERS:
If you’re at Can Can Wonderland this month, you might find yourself waiting in a bathroom line with several people wearing simple, slightly worn white clothes. You might wonder if it’s a cult, or a protest. As it happens, The Ravagers is a little of both. [...] The Ravagers is a play you won’t soon forget. // Jay Gabler, City Pages
Here's what audience members had to say, but you can join us this weekend (Thursday through Monday!) to see this intimate and epic story for yourself:
[...] a tragic, hopeful, piercing, beautiful piece of theatre.
Funny, real, heart-wrenching.
Engaging and bittersweet.
It will rattle you - a sharp and visceral update that brings new light to its characters' humanity. Please put it on your calendar. There is way too much talent in this space.
Took myself on a date to see Savage Umbrella's The Ravagers last night and it was absolutely stunning. Can Can Wonderland’s space is gorgeous and the soundscape created by Nissa was to die for.
In case that's not enough for you, here's a sneak peek of this "stunning" story (epic photography by Anna Schultz!):

We wanted to take a moment to tell you about our wonderful host for THE RAVAGERS - Can Can Wonderland! In case you don't know, Can Can Wonderland is a whimsical wonderland of adventure including artist-designed mini-golf, an awesome arcade game selection, boozy milkshakes (and other funky beverages!), and 2 stages where they host all sorts of cabarets, variety shows, and special acts for folks of all ages.
We can't say enough good things about these fierce art-loving entrepreneurs. The whole team at Can Can Wonderland has made us feel so at home over the past month. They've helped us find mops and brooms, high-fived us in the hallway, commiserated about leaking roofs in big old buildings, and navigated a number of other exciting site specific adventures. This work is not easy, but these folks are the rad super heroes of our weird art-making hearts. We're glad to be part of the Can Can family!
Surprisingly (or maybe not-so-surprisingly if you know Savage Umbrella), we're not using one of Can Can Wonderland's stages. That would be too easy! We're creating a brand new site-specific venue down the hall called The X Lab. We love jumping into non-traditional spaces to see what's possible... and we're really excited to immerse you in the world of THE RAVAGERS.
In case you needed some other wacky ways to warm you up this winter, here are a few upcoming events at Can Can Wonderland:
And don't miss Savage Umbrella company members Leslie Vincent and Emily Dussault as the Champagne Drops at Can Can Wonderland's Valentine's Day choose your own adventure! Tickets are on sale now.
