The Speakeasy: Age of Scofflaws

The Speakeasy: Age of Scofflaws, created by Nick A. Olivero and presented by San Francisco's Boxcar Theatre, is an immersive theater experience set in a Prohibition-era nightclub.

“In 1927, Charles Lindbergh flew from New York to Paris, marking the world’s first solo transatlantic flight; it was the year that made Clara Bow the embodiment of the modern flapper known as ‘The It Girl’; and Al Jolson starred in the first ‘talking picture,’ ending the era of silent movies,” said Nick A. Olivero, creator of The Speakeasy. “By moving the clock forward four years, from 1923 to 1927, The Speakeasy is tapping into the decade’s famous optimism, even as Prohibition remained in full effect.”

“This season, audiences can expect more music, more comedy and more good cheer.”

While many characters from the original show have been laid to rest, several favorites – Miss Velma Louise Cole, the resident chanteuse; Eddie, the emcee; and Sal, the club owner – remain. Audiences may also look forward to many new faces in the cast.

In addition to Olivero, returning directors include Michael French and Leah Gardner, alongside choreographers Elizabeth Etler and Kimberly Lester, and music director Joe Wilcockson. The Speakeasy welcomes new costume designer Ralph Hoy.

In keeping with historical speakeasies of the 1920s, the address of The Speakeasy will remain undisclosed to ticket buyers until the day before the event. At that time patrons will receive a text or email providing instructions.
