Need some last minute Saturday night plans? Are you the one who would try anything, go anywhere – or maybe just wish you were? Get thee to the Evidence Room for tonight’s final performance of Ken Roht’s Route 99 Orange Star Dinner Theater. This performance has been extended a few times, but there’s no telling if it will be again. Try this on for size – everything in the performance, from the food to the costumes and props are from the 99cent Store. Yes, we’re serious. Laist was at the performance last night and with out giving too much away, let’s just say the food ranged from Spam maki rolls to cheesecake faux-oreos. Wine and other beverages are on a donation basis. The show with dinner is $30 and without is $20.

***The show will satisfy your mind, but if you’re still hungry afterwards, grab a bagel from the Brooklyn Bagel Bakery across the street. Open until 11pm, this is pretty damn close to East Coast bagels and a wonderful treat at the end of the evening.

It’s up to you to contemplate on the way home how to incorporate parts of their amazing costumes into your next Halloween or costume party.
