The Brits may be wrong about preferring tea over coffee, but they’ve sure figured out how to take the game of bingo out of the parlor and onto the stage. Next month, not one but two fun takes on the senior game night staple are coming to NYC.
Feb. 7, 7 p.m. & 9:30 p.m.
Union Pool, 484 Union Ave., Brooklyn
21+, $10, on sale at 1 p.m. Jan. 16
Imagine if the lottery were sexy, with high production values and a manic emcee, and you get some idea of Rebel Bingo. You can totally see how this game had its origins in a long, cold night in London. The Feb. 6 show at Gramercy Theater is already sold out, and tickets are limited to 150 people per show. Sign up for their mailing list for more details.
Swap the bingo parlor for a cabaret and the numbers for songs, and you’ve got all the makings of a party. JessIndeedy is your host for this musical competition for “amazing and kitsch prizes.”
