Party at the Big Dog Staff Pick

When: Sat., Feb. 18 2012
It was one year ago almost to the day that actor, comedian, and impresario Don Mitri opened Big Dog Theater inside Coventry’s historic Centrum Theater. Tonight, he’s celebrating. “It’s been a huge learning process for me,” says Mitri, who has brought in plenty of out-of-town talent over the past year, all the while training and developing a new generation of local improv students. “But I can honestly say I am loving every minute of it!” Mitri will start spreading that love at 7 p.m., with a pre-show reception in the theater lobby complete with light apps and a cash bar. At 9, he’ll be hosting a comedy revue — a sort of Best of 2011 that features stand-up comics Marc Jaffe and Steve Guy, singer Valerie Victoria, videos from Last Call Cleveland, and performances by improv house teams Thunderlips and the Submissives and Good Dinner Party. Afterward, stick around for a post-show get-together at City & East Hookah Bar. “Nothing stops around here, even when I call it a night,” muses Mitri. “I can’t wait to finally get some sleep after the anniversary party — or at least a good nap!” Tix are $10 by phone or online, or $12 (cash only) at the door.
