The Annoyance Theater and Bar
About The Annoyance Theater and Bar
The Annoyance has created over 250 shows, comprised of improvisation, sketch, full-length plays, cabaret, and full-length musicals. Hundreds of people have performed in Annoyance shows, and you see many of them today on stage, in films, and on television.
On September 10, 1987, a group was sitting around a table at an Italian restaurant talking about slasher films. As the discourse pursued, they got the crazy idea of producing a blood show for Halloween, which was a few weeks away. Splatter Theatre opened on October 10th, 1987. Nobody knew at the time that they were launching The Annoyance Theatre. It wasn’t until they formally rented a space in 1989 that they came up with The Annoyance. In 1999, The Annoyance branched into production and formed Annoyance Productions.
Currently, The Annoyance strikes a balance between live performance and production with continuous projects on the slate for both.
