These three friends have cooked up a wild and entertaining evening that promises to be epic. Attendees are asked to wear sleepover attire, and bring pillows, flashlights, sleeping bags and/or blankets. (It will make the floor more comfortable.) Prizes. Cocktails. Dirty stories. PJs. Music. And whatever other thing Chuck decides to do at the last minute. This show will sell out.
