THE VIOLET HOUR follows a familiar late-night format – with a far-out twist. Winnifred Coombe (CAROLINE KINGSLEY), a Victorian spiritualist and magical traveler, transcends time and space to bring her audience aboard her inter-dimensional spacecraft. Guests mingle with Winnifred and her outlandish friends from space. They talk about how to save the planet – or at least enjoy the heck out of our last breaths on this little blue sphere.
This month, it’s our WINTER SOLSTICE SPECIAL. This is the darkest time of the year – but Winnifred and her extra-dimensional ensemble will show us how to find some light and groove into wintertime!
Doors 9:00 PM, show 9:30 PM.
Tickets $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
This event is mixed seated and standing room. Seats are first-come, first-served. REFUND POLICY: Tickets may be refunded up to 24 hours before the event. Within 24 hours we may take exchanges for other events at our discretion. No refunds after the event.
