Experience a day in the gritty world of a neighborhood watering hole in New York City. Set in the final days of the 1980s, an era defined by extravagance and the pursuit of self-identity, “Burnzy’s Last Call” offers a mature and daring take on the popular eighties sitcom “Cheers."
In the heart of downtown Manhattan, Eppie's Tavern is a hub of lively banter and edgy antics. Here, a diverse group of urbanites gather to revel in the electric atmosphere of the bustling city. Sal, the bartender, presides over a colorful cast of characters that includes the "Hair Club" businessmen, curious film students, a not-so-off-duty cop, a bookie who keeps bets in his head, an addictive gambler, an intimidating drag queen, a drunk painter, Wall Street hustlers, and more. Each patron brings their unique personality and background to the eclectic mix. Amongst the crowd, a familiar face sits at the bar: Burnzy, an old barfly and one of Sal's most loyal customers. As the day wears on and the vibrant scene unfolds, Burnzy reveals the secrets of his past and the reason for his enduring presence at the tavern. Amidst the whirlwind of activity and the kaleidoscope of personalities, Burnzy's tale stands out like a beacon of truth, a reminder of the rich and complex lives that inhabit this vibrant city.
