Too shocking, wild and hilarious to be made up.
Verbatim Verboten, created in Chicago over 10 years ago by MICHAEL MARTIN, is an ever-changing revue of brief, staged transcripts. This is an evening of word-for-word performances of noted and notorious folk (also some 'civilians') saying things they never intended the public to hear: sureveillance tapes, wiretapped conversations, forgotten live mics, on-camera diatribes, released emails, private correspondence, 911 calls, and the like. The producers have collected almost 400 such pieces, with new material being added to the mix all the time...meaning no performance is exactly like the one before.
Verbatim Verboten has enjoyed extended successful runs in Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, New York, and New Orleans.

The show runs roughly 75 minutes. Given the brevity of most of the transcripts, we perform 20-25 per show.

We promise to perform the transcripts verbatim, but we don't promise not to, um...re-interpret them in staging and delivery.

We vary the program every performance.

New Orleans...
"In the simplest theatrical mode -- but also the most effective -- the actors perform the transcripts word for word, taking only some license with intonation or emphasis. The results are at points riotously funny, shamelessly embarrassing and even a bit scary as the audience finds itself eavesdropping on comments never meant to be heard.
"...As viciously cutting as some of the material may be, there is a whimsical feel to this verbal voyeurism....[T]he show [has] an easygoing, casual nature....no piece is too lengthy. Each is a pleasing hors d'oeuvre passed around a pleasant cocktail party -- tasty and different enough to keep the audience wanting another." --Times-Picayune
