About The Explorers Club - Off Broadway

Show Info


The Explorers Club is a new madcap Off-Broadway comedy by Tony-nominated writer Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde). Set in London, 1879. The members of the prestigious Explorers Club face the worst crisis in their history: the club's president wants to admit a woman, and to make things wors, the bartender is terrible.

True, the she is brilliant, beautiful, and has discovered a legendary Lost City, but the decision to let in a woman could shake the very foundation of the British Empire. How can a group of London based explorers make such a decision without a decent drink?
Grab your safety goggles for some very mad science involving deadly cobras, irate Irishmen and the occasional airship.
