MANSON: THE MUSICAL!
October 25 – December 5 at The Kraine Theater
Just in time for the 40th anniversary of the Tate-LaBianca murders, EndTimes Productions present the long-awaited New York Premiere of MANSON: THE MUSICAL! A long-running 1990’s cult hit in Chicago, this dark musical comedy about Charles Manson features music, book and lyrics developed through improv by the members of Annoyance Theater (including The Office’s Kate Flannery). This revolutionary “Family” musical features guest appearances by The Beatles, Sharon Tate, The Beach Boys and more. Directed by Russell Dobular, previews begin October 25th with opening night set for November 8th.
“I went in prepared to hate it, ready to use every adjective in the book to slam their insensitivity, their cruelty — and walked out amazed at what they’d done with a story that, on its own merits, was already so far over the top it couldn’t be improved by satire. Playing it straight was satire.” — Chicago Sun-Times
“Director Russell Dobular has braved the strangeness of these characters to create a highly energized, balanced portrayal. The cast is multi-talented . . . pleasantly white trash.” — Ed Malin, newyorktheater.com
SF Fringe 2009 Award Winners: Sold Out award, Best Ensemble, and Best Director (Russell Dobular).
“Pushing Theatre to the edge fearlessly and perhaps even wantonly … unlike anything else that’s playing on stage in New York at the moment.” – Martin Denton, NYTheatre.com
