Anyone interested in performing or writing is invited to the monthly Magnetic Midnights, when each attendee is allotted five minutes to show their work, whether it be writing, acting, comedy, music, or dance. The performers and pieces that impress, earn slots on the theater’s schedule.
This café, bar, and performance house is also the only place around where the audience can grab local fare and drinks before taking a seat in front of the stage. The Magnetic Theatre is open Friday and Saturday nights for plays, and hosts poetry slams, storytelling, live music, and comedy shows throughout the week. Don’t miss the next premiere, August 11-September 2. The Last Laugh, A Comedian’s Tragedy by Samuels tells the tale of a gay comedy troupe director, a drug-addled, 19th-century poet, and the patron who brought them together. www.themagneticfield.com
