Who Killed Joan Crawford? Discount Ticket Offer

At the Athenaeum Theater!

Joan Crawford

Use offer Code MissCrawford when selecting your tickets, then check the qty on the discount offer drop down box. This is good for all shows during the entire run of the show.

On a dark stormy night, five men arrive at a cabin for a soap star’s surprise birthday party. Each guest has been asked to dress as the birthday boy’s favorite actress, Joan Crawford, in one of her signature roles – and the results aren’t pretty. As they wait for the star, the five “Joans” begin drinking and dishing, dark secrets emerge, and soon there’s one Joan less… and then another… Who Killed Joan Crawford?!

All ages. Performance lasts approximately 75 minutes with no intermission.

All Request Friday!

Big Chicks is one of a few bars that still take request. 

52732907 2223343111020038 4983556793859833856 O

We have a couple of tips, for requesting a song that will get played and will keep the dance floor packed!

#1 This is not a slow dance and we will not be re-living your high school dance by playing My Heart Will Go On!
#2 If Beyonce is playing, do not rush up and request Beyonce again.
#3 Listen to what is playing and keep with the beat. If you are hearing Robyn, Madonna, Kylie, Dua and Ariana stick with that. All though we all love Toto, Journey, Nirvana and Siouxsie they do not always make for a great dance song.
#4 Most important, remember it is a REQUEST, not a requirement or a demand!

Dance songs from the 70's to today! What will be your request? Will your request pack the dance floor!?
