Still Standing @The Institution Theater

For the last six months or so, the stage at The Institution Theater has been under attack. First by the city of Austin, then by our old landlord, and now by our new landlord! And guess what? Our new landlords won. Although The Institution Theater will definitely live on, (We’re moving everything to our other building just 10 yards away.) we’re losing the stage in the warehouse at the end of January. It was a good fight. A long fight. But a good fight.

Anyway, Chris Collings and Jon Fortenbury, the wacky guys that occasionally put together the Still Standing Shows want to make sure that we leave the building in style! The have put together the final Still Standing Show that will be performed in the warehouse space and they promise that it will be the best Still Standing Show yet!

Featuring the comedy stylings of Seth Murphy, Paul Weiner, Megan Tucei, Jon Fortenbury, Jaci Kramer, Tanveer Arora, Valerie Nies, Symply Courney, and Tai Nguyen! And the evening will be hosted by Chris Collings!
