2Co's is No More – It saddens the company heads of Shadowbox to report that their sister theater, 2Co's Cabaret, has gone out of business. Shadowbox hopes to revitalize the style of the 2Co's theatrical experience as part of their Homecoming project currently in negotiation.
Shadowbox's younger sibling focuses on dramatic monologues and one-act plays, acoustic music and poetry. – History
In February 2000, less than a year after a fire devastated Shadowbox's Spring Street theater and seven months after it moved its operations to Easton Town Center, the group bounced back in a spectacular manner. How? By opening 2 Co's Cabaret--the nonprofit, dramatic arm of the Shadowbox sketch comedy/rock music troupe.
Shadowbox regulars and some new faces perform at the cabaret, which is housed in the old 6,000-square-foot Metropolis Motorcycle Shop (between Haiku and Frezno). 2 Co's first-floor performance space is intimate, populated with round, candle-lit tables; as at Shadowbox, the actors wait on patrons between acts.
Come to the Cabaret
Local artists exhibit their work in a large, sunlight-filled art gallery on the building's second floor. On Gallery Hop nights, the cabaret hosts live acoustic music--instead of its current show--for the art-lovin' crowds, and every Saturday night at 10pm, local musicians play at its late-night music series.
My visit to 2Co's – I visited 2Co's for the first time with friends on Saturday, April 19th. The entertainment was wonderful; creative, amusing; the singing was really enjoyable. We all enjoyed our dinner/snacks as well. My only small complaint was the cold draft coming off the drapes near the wall- next time I'll include a sweater.
