THE THIRD STORY

Genre: Drama
MCC presents Charles Busch's new play

Mr. Busch will appear in The Third Story himself in the leading female role; further casting will be announced shortly. This production will mark the New York Premiere of the show following a recently completed run at La Jolla Playhouse.

A mother and son screenwriting team hunker down in Omaha after fleeing Commie-obsessed 1940's Hollywood. A romantically-inclined but socially-inept princess makes a deal with an ancient witch. And tommy guns meet test tubes as a way-too-well-dressed first lady of the mob forms a desperate alliance with a cloning scientist whose experiments have had, um, less-than-consistent results. Gangster flicks, fairy tales and B-movie sci-fi collide in this epic comic fable from the mind of one of the American theater's premier talents. The Third Story is both a sublimely crafted tale of love, longing and sacrifice and, in true Buschian fashion, a helluva good time.
