For the last eight years, The Speakeasy in downtown Rock Island has been the diverse entertainment venue in the Quad Cities!  From Bottom’s Up Quad City Burlesque and Manscape (the area’s only male burlesque revue) to Windy City Dueling Pianos, Viva La Divas Drag Show, The Manny Lopez Big Band, countless stand up comedy and improv comedy shows and monthly trivia contests, there is truly something for everyone at The Speakeasy!
The theater is thrilled to announce its newest show THE (NOT SO) NEWLYWED GAME SHOW. The first performance will be on Saturday, June 29. This will be similar to the classic game show with four couples competing to win a prize package of two dinner and show tickets to Circa ’21 and
