The Optimist tells the story of a man sitting in a bar waiting for his long lost love to return. He holds tight to his drink and reminisces about the night they first met. Peer through the lens of one man’s memories as he grapples for a greater understanding of his past and the twisted road that will be his future. Leap into the narrative of The Optimist explored through high-flying acrobatic feats, dart throwing, dancing, physical comedy, and magic.  Enter a world of imagination from a time gone by brimming with excitement, romance, comedy, sex, booze, and the insanity of life.

Where has THE OPTIMIST been?

The Optimist was selected by Dixon Place Theater as a performance in their residency program in New York City for its Spring 2017 season and is currently being reimagined and redeveloped for a 6 -10 week run at The Peoples Improv Theater in Spring 2018.
