From Broadway

That sweet transvestite and his motley crew did the Time Warp on Broadway in a 25th anniversary revival. Complete with sass from the audience, cascading toilet paper, and an array of other audience participation props, this deliberately kitschy rock 'n' roll sci-fi gothic musical is more fun than ever.

I really liked the script we are doing for Northampton Community College's fall Musical in October so very excited to get started rehearsing it and then the performances!

We did this show in my community. It is not for everyone, but the audiences really loved it. People sing along! You can read the script or watch the movie to learn more about the show. The play is different, but in a good way.
