New York-based Parallel Exit, masters of physical comedy, are coming to Baltimore with their smash hit Room 17B!

It’s like your job—but weirder.

In a vague, yet familiar office setting, a highly accomplished cast of four actors put on a delightful series of skits, blackouts, gags and pranks. Room 17B is a comedy that celebrates the silent physical style of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton with a dash of Monty Python and Tim & Eric. 9 to 5 will never be the same!

Room 17B has appeared at 59E59 Theaters in New York City, and has toured throughout the United States and Europe. It features an ensemble of four, blending physical comedy, dance, live music, and audience participation.

"65 minutes of outlandish incongruity ... charming ... amusing ... perfect" — New York Times

Room 17B is like an anthology of clown haikus - a series of self-contained routines, each one brief, elegant and perfectly balanced.” —The New York Post

"A charming 65 minutes of pure fun." —Theater Mania

"Four Stars" —Time Out New York

Co-presented by Quest Visual Theatre and Theatre Project, Room 17B will be performed four times only, May 10 - 12, 2013.
