Performance Dates

Pointless Theatre presents a long-awaited revival of their smash-hit jazz puppet spectacle, "Minnie the Moocher!" This cautionary tale follows an innocent small town girl named Minnie who moves to Harlem and falls victim to the dangerous, decadent, and seductive world of sex, drugs, and jazz. This original tale is loosely adapted from songs made famous by Cab Calloway in the 1920s and 1930s and features ten songs played by a live, eight piece jazz band. This production includes three new, never before seen songs, so that audiences old and new will find something to love about the show. WARNING: This outrageous cautionary tale is not for the faint of heart and may induce fits of jitterbugging.
