Butt Kapinski

Jan 26, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Living Things 2019 presents:
Butt Kapinski January 26 2019 7:30pm at the Black Box Theatre 19+ Event

Think it’s a solo show? Think again. Private eye Butt Kapinski invites you to co-star in a film noir murder mystery. Join Butt in a seedy world of sex, sin, shadows and subterfuge as you take the ride of a full-on interactive comedic experience. Kick reality to the curb! Play in a world of dark dreams and bad similes. ADULTS ONLY.
“This was a remarkable piece of theater, sort of like a foreign language immersion course. Almost everyone in the audience was drawn into this interaction show, and turned in quite incredible improv performances themselves. Don’t miss this limited run – you’ll be kicking yourself if you do.”
—LA Reporter

“You know how laughter sometimes just keeps spooling out of you, like it’s this great, long silken rope and you can’t believe how much of it there is? Like you just sit there helplessly and shake while it keeps unraveling? Kids laugh like that all the time. And that’s how I was laughing when I saw Butt Kapinski, for my second time, at the Cultch last night.”
—Vancouver theatre critic Colin Thomas
“It’s a brave, sometimes terrifying spectacle to have a performer construct a play in conversation with an audience like this, and Fleysher pulls it off beautifully.”
—Vancouver Sun

“To say audience members surrendered themselves wholeheartedly to their roles would be an understatement… Fleysher’s ability to create community in the space of 60 minutes is nothing short of amazing.”
-The Georgia Straight

“* * * * * … a tour de force of character comedy and clowning.” —The UK Independent

“* * * * * Ludicrous, racy and entertaining immersive comedy at its finest.” —Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

“* * * * *… Butt Kapinski is not just a show; nor is it just the name of the main character; it could very well be the name of a new type of theatre/comedy style.” —Glamadelaide (full review)

“* * * * * … the kind of ‘make believe’ joy rarely encountered since childhood.” —Fritz Magazine, Adelaide

“* * * * *… Calling Butt Kapinski ‘a one-woman show’ is like calling Wayne Gretsky ‘a hockey player’… I can’t remember when I’ve laughed so hard or so often…”
—Calgary Herald

” * * * * This is not audience participation, this is immersive comedy like you have never experienced. And we love it.”
—Kate Copstick, THE SCOTSMAN
