“Fun Show, Everyone Laughed”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

We went to a 10pm, Friday show to kick off a Bachelorette weekend in Austin. It was a great ice-breaking event, since all 6 of us girls did not know each other. We all laughed, hard and were very amused the entire time. Really enjoyed the audience interaction. Definitely, more of a variety show, rather than a improv show. Lots of singing, dancing, and magic all built around today's current events. Conveniently located on 6th street. Would recommend to anyone that needs a break from the bars on 6th!

“Fun Night Out!”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

Went to the eight o'clock show recently after reading terrific reviews. Everyone is right - this show is loads of fun...very witty, quick paced and entertaining. My husband and I went to one of many places close by for happy hour then headed to buy tickets a little before seven. Perfect timing, as they open the theater about seven and you can go in early to pick your seats (several rows near the front were open for general admission.) They have a small lobby area where you can buy wine, beer and snacks (good popcorn) while you wait for the show to begin. Love the funky decor! This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Austin.

“Vaudeville would be proud!!!”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

A true variety show at its best! Filled with singing, dancing, magic(yes, magic!!!), and sketch comedy about life in the USA ranging from politics to world events and of course, Texas are truly wonderful. The theater is small enough to have a very up close and personal feel with very energetic players. The back of the stage is open to windows on 6th street in Austin (Bourbon Street in New Orleans is similar) which makes for great interactions with passersby.

If you are in Austin and want a good show, Esther's Follies would be the first choice. Be sure to get there 45-60 minutes early if you want to get a good seat close to stage.
