Charles Manson meets Mad Magazine in this tasteless rock’n’roll spoof about a filthy faux-Messiah, his cult of wanton women, and high Hollywood murder. With a raucous score, gratuitous nudity, acid freakouts, excessive gore, cruel stereotypes and slapstick misogyny, consider this fictionalized musical satire the anti-Hair.
About the Company: Piper McKenzie
Piper McKenzie (pipermckenzie.com) has been a fixture of the downtown and Brooklyn scenes since being founded by Hope Cartelli and Jeff Lewonczyk in 1998. Called "brazenly experimental, unapologetically populist, and surprisingly endearing" by IndieTheater.org, Piper McKenzie creates mock-epic movement theater and kinetic plays/musicals at the intersection of physicality, comedy and mythology (both pop-culture and historical). Recent shows include the Fight Fest success Craven Monkey and the Mountain of Fury; the 2009 FringeNYC hit Willy Nilly: A Musical Exploitation of the Most Far-Out Cult Murders of the Psychedelic Era; the NYITA-nominated The Granduncle Quadrilogy: Tales from the Land of Ice; the popular serial Lady Cryptozoologist at the Vampire Cowboys Saloon, and the celebrated Bizarre Science Fantasy dance-theater series, whose most popular installment, Macbeth Without Words, was a standout of 2007's Pretentious Festival at The Brick.
