Ever since the Moulin Rouge opened down the street, the Moulin Bleu has seen nothing but a decline in business. The can can dancers are leaving in droves, they can't get bohemian painters through the door with promises of free drinks, and even the half decent mimes won't work for the Bleu. The owners of the club, Monsieur and Mademoiselle Ennui, are desperate to find a solution to their problem, but the business simply doesn't have the collateral to merit a loan. When they do come up with a plan, it is more than a little disreputable and the reper- cussions could be deadly.
Come enjoy great food, great wine, and a great show! For more details, please visit: Ambler Restaurant Week

JANUARY 12-27, 2018 Where

: $15 General Admission
Arsenic and Old Lace is a farcical black comedy revolving around the Brewster family, descended from the Mayflower, but now composed of insane homicidal maniacs. The hero, Mortimer Brewster, is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn, NY, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves.
His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them with a glass of home-made elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and “just a pinch” of cyanide, a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home (which then serves as graves for the aunts victims; he thinks that they died of Yellow Fever); and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein, to conceal his identity, and now looks like horror-film actor Boris Karloff.
