Dallas Observer's Description

If you’re like us, you’ve seen the sign for Pocket Sandwich Theatre while driving down Mockingbird Lane and wondered if they had falafel. Alas, it’s not a takeout joint but a theater specializing in comedies and melodramas that encourage audience participation (think popcorn-throwing). Late nights feature everything from stand-up comedy and improv to burlesque. Also, there really are sandwiches -- and plenty of other food items, plus pitchers of beer and wine to enjoy during the show.

Merchant's Description

We say that our place is “the most fun you can have in a Dallas theatre,” and we constantly strive to live up to that claim. Professional quality, locally produced theatrical shows are blended with good food, drink, and a friendly, casual atmosphere. A place where you can relax while enjoying food, fun, friends, and the thrill of a live theatrical performance in an intimate setting where there isn’t a bad seat in the house (okay, okay - maybe a few bad seats). We seat up to 145 at table, bar, and booth seating, which is assigned on an as-you-arrive basis. Special consideration is given to seat larger groups together, and for patrons with special physical needs.

    I had never been to the Pocket Sandwich Theatre before and that alone was quite an experience. The popcorn throwing made it all the more fun! The play was cleverly written and a laugh out loud experience. Plus the actors threw themselves into their respective roles. It was awesome, and I had so much fun! Its a must see!

    Saw Captain Phantasm and the Countdown to Doom! last night at the Pocket Sandwich Theatre. A hilarious spoof of old serials, the play was enormously entertaining, helped by the fact that the popcorn was flowing and flying around the theater! Highly recommended!

    This is one of the few Dallas theaters that will produce shows by local playwrights. Also: sit up front... popcorn isn't very aerodynamic.
