Remember when a harmless game of spin the bottle progressed into the titillating yet terrifying seven minutes in heaven? Remember the paralyzing fear, the awkward seven minutes that followed, crammed in a too-tiny closet?
Or perhaps you were one of the fortunate souls who escaped their formative years without enduring it.
Either way, downtown’s quirky collective Space 55 is sure to bring up some memories during its upcoming presentation of Seven Minutes Under the Mistletoe.
The annual holiday spin on their standing variety show Seven Minutes in Heaven, is less of a Yuletide opportunity to revisit your youth and more a chance to relish in improv -- or cringe at a mortifying performance. The entirely random, diverse acts might include anything from music to magic and slapstick comedy to crude monologues, so leave the kiddos at home.
Meet under the mistletoe at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, December 21, at 636 East Pierce Street. Tickets are $10. Visit www.space55.org.
