Kiss your Ex Goodbye. Just Kidding. |  A NEW Romantic Comedy with Plenty of Drama


Buy Tickets

The Hipp continues our wonderful partnership with the UF School of Theatre + Dance on another outstanding production: Sarah Ruhl’s Stage Kiss. Previous Hipp/UF collaborations (Avenue Q, Clybourne Park, and Peter and the Starcatcher) have been audience favorites, and we can’t wait to share this New York Times CRITICS PICK with you. Stage Kiss is a charming and clever tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss – or when actors share a real one. This romantic comedy blends over-the-top farce with emotional experiences that will bring laughter, fantasy and heart to anyone who has ever been in love…or in a play.

This production contains adult language and situations.

 

“Suffused with warmth and humor” — New York Times

“Romantic comedy and backstage farce”— New York Times

“Stage Kiss is part parody, part inside-baseball valentine to theater, part falling-down silly physical comedy about love.” – Newsday

“A superb new romantic.”

“It’s moving, smart, and flat-out hilarious.” 

 

8 Shows a Week:  Tuesdays-Thursdays at 7pm | Fridays at 8pm | Saturdays at 5 & 8:30pm | Sundays at 2 & 7pm

The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years is based on the first part of The Beatles’ career (1962-1966) – the period in which they toured and captured the world’s acclaim. Ron Howard’s film will explore how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become this extraordinary phenomenon, “The Beatles.” It will delve into their inner workings – how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together – all the while, highlighting The Beatles’ extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities. The film will focus on the time period from the early Beatles’ journey in the days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966.
 
Plus – in theaters only – an exclusive 30-minute concert film of The Beatles’ legendary 1965 performance at Shea Stadium, with digitally remastered sound and a restored 4K image.

“The closest you can get to actually being there.”

After stumbling upon a bizarre “competitive endurance tickling” video online, wherein young men are paid to be tied up and tickled, reporter David Farrier reaches out to request a story from the company. But the reply he receives is shocking—the sender mocks Farrier’s sexual orientation and threatens extreme legal action should he dig any deeper. So, like any good journalist confronted by a bully, he does just the opposite: he travels to the hidden tickling facilities in Los Angeles and uncovers a vast empire, known for harassing and harming the lives of those who protest their involvement in these films. The more he investigates, the stranger it gets, discovering secret identities and criminal activity. [Magnolia Pictures]

“It’s a fascinating look not only at this particular character and his wide reach, but at the evolution of the Internet, its utopian possibilities for connection, and the dark side of its power to expose and harm individuals within the system.”
-Katie Walsh, The Playlist

 
“An alarming cautionary tale about how easy it is in the Internet age to ruin people’s lives while hiding behind a cloak of anonymity, the pic boasts a humorously titillating entry hook that soon gives way to engrossing conspiracy-thriller-like content.”
-Dennis Harvey, Variety

Kampai! For the Love of Sake

    

ONE WEEKEND ONLY!


Saturday (9/24) 6:00 PM
Sunday (9/25) 2:30 PM

Discover the art of sake. An age-old staple of Japanese culture and cuisine, the fermented rice wine has recently been winning fans all over the world.

Kampai! For the Love of Sake journeys from rice paddies in Japan to breweries around the globe as it chronicles three passionate exponents of the increasingly popular beverage: a British ex-pat who has become Japan’s first foreign master brewer, an American journalist known as the “Sake Evangelist,” and a fifth-generation Japanese brewer determined to shake up the industry.

Together, their stories form a fascinating snapshot of how ancient traditions are adapting to the demands of a growing global market.

“Enlightening! Taking a cosmopolitan approach to its subject matter, the film follows a trio of admitted sake geeks from different corners of the globe.”
-The L.A. Times

 

Kampai! For the Love of Sake is a labour of love. From the filmmakers to the participants in the film, it’s a celebration of sake and the life journey it has provided to many.”
-Smashing Mag
