Adirondack Hotel 1245 Main Street, Long Lake, NY
The Adirondack Hotel Presents Famed Long Lake Bed Race & Polar Bear Plunge Host Peter Michael Marino’s International Hit Comedy “Show Up” Oct 13 & 14 Long Lake, NY
After the recent critically acclaimed, sold out run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, Peter Michael Marino’s semi-improvised, one-man comedy “Show Up” makes its Long Lake debut at the Adirondack Hotel for two performances on October 13 & 14 at 6:00 p.m.
In “Show Up,” award-winning solo show performer, producer and director Peter Michael Marino (“Desperately Seeking the Exit,” “Late with Lance!”) uses his decades of comedy and solo performance expertise to turn the often vilified clichés of the genre on their clichéd heads. Marino exploits an arsenal of Post-it® Notes to compile and transform the challenging and enlightening real-life audience experiences into a single vibrant life-story that is unique each time. Chance elements are increased as audience members are engaged to design the set and sound.
“Show Up” provides a wild, unpredictable ride for the audience as Marino navigates this real-life high wire…and there’s a party! An array of Adirondack Hotel appetizers will be served starting at 6:00 p.m. with the performance beginning shortly after 6:15p.m. Cash bar available throughout the 75-minute show, concluding with a complimentary champagne toast.
Show up and spend the night! Receive a discount for Adirondack Hotel lodging by presenting your ticket reservation. Tickets are $25 per person and include show and appetizers. Reservations are required by phoning or emailing the Adirondack Hotel at 518-624-4700 or email@example.com Credit card information will be provided and guests will be charged upon arrival. Cancellation policy is 24 hours before the event.
The Great Drive & Leaf Peeping:
September and October are most picturesque month of the year. The maples, beeches and other hardwoods close out the season, not with a whimper, but with a blaze of glory. Reds, yellows, oranges and other various shades mix with the greens of the pines, spruce and balsam to present the visitor and resident alike eye pleasing vistas. While other areas boast of the vibrant colors, the Adirondacks actually have them. Peak color in the Long Lake and Raquette Lake area is generally a little earlier than many other areas with mid September into early October presenting the visitor with the most color.
