A Drink Maker's Guide to Spirits explores the way people often find themselves "in a glass". Bartender's have many jobs: therapy, matchmaking and, of course, bartending! People define themselves by what they consume and this is especially evident when it comes to cocktails. Your bartender and instructor extraordinaire, Alex Conner, will teach you the art of creating drinks, relationships and conversations.

A Drink Maker’s Guide to Spirits

Fox and Badger Productions—Tom Hendry Warehouse

While I enjoyed the music that came accompanied the show, this is not a play I will be telling anyone to go to. The show was boring and the characters were forgettable or just plain unlikable. One I wish I was able to forget was the character Justin Conner who was overacted and ham-fisted throughout the entire play and had me rolling my eyes more than once. A stand out of this show was Alex Conner played by Nathan Sawatzky-Dyck. I did love his breaking of the fourth wall and the tidbits about different spirits I had no idea about. His singing voice was superb as well. I didn’t come for the music however and found my self wanting for anything resembling an interesting story. I checked my watch within the first 15 minutes and was checked out for the rest of the play. Better luck next year folks.
