"Travel back in time -- before the internet, before television, before Americans knew words like OMG and LOL and Kardashian. Join us in this heady era, when queens were queens and radio was king," as the Running With Scissors Radio Players present AN ALIEN HOME COMPANION & THE TITANIC COMEDY HOUR.
In its characteristically camped-up style, Running With Scissors has reimagined these two cinematic blockbusters -- ALIEN and TITANIC -- as radio plays, performed by a dedicated troupe of young(ish) starlets, Broadway washouts, and at least one diabolical diva. Watch as this motley mob of half-baked hacks drags listeners to the furthest reaches of the universe to fight a surprisingly civilized alien menace. Tag along onboard the Titanic, as they tell a tawdtry tale of class warfare, forbidden love, and Celine Dion. Will these beloved cinematic stories change in Running With Scissors' hands? Darned tootin' they will -- and how!
AN ALIEN HOME COMPANION & THE TITANIC COMEDY HOUR starsKyle Daigrepont, Jack Long, Brian Peterson, Lisa Picone, Richard Read, and Dorian Rush. Performances are held at the AllWays Theatre, 2240 St. Claude Avenue, at the corner of Marigny Street. Shows run Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 6pm through July 1.
