Critical Role Live: The Adventures of the Darrington Brigade

more information  Know Before You Go

We're headed to Austin for a very special live show: The Adventures of the Darrington Brigade! This will mark the very first time that we've had a live show in Texas and we are more than excited to make our way to the Lone Star State.

Join us as our very own Sam Riegel steps back into his role as our favorite human artificer, Taryon Darrington. Tary will lead a troupe of unlikely miscreants through a dangerous journey in search of glory! This means that the rest of Critical Role cast (Travis Willingham, Marisha Ray, Taliesin Jaffe, Liam O'Brien, Laura Bailey) will be rolling and playing BRAND NEW CHARACTERS! And, of course, our illustrious Dungeon Master, Matthew Mercer, will be behind the DM screen once again.

If you're unable to attend our live show, have no fear: We're recording this very special one-shot and will air it on our Twitch channel at 7pm Pacific on Friday, November 29th. VOD will be available immediately for our Twitch channel subscribers and will be on our YouTube channel on Sunday, December 1st.

For those of you attending our live show in Austin, we ask very kindly that you refrain from posting spoilers online out of respect for your fellow Critters. 

We hope to spend a magical evening with you in Bat City!
