A Charlie Brown Apocalypse? Wait, what is this show?
It’s a great new comedy, loosely based on A Charlie Brown Christmas. In it, the entire Peanuts gang are re-imagined as born-again Christians waiting for the Apocalypse.
Huh, that sounds pretty funny. Who wrote it?
Some guy named Matt Fried. He’s the former host of The Matt Fried Hour and the video podcast,Sleeping In with Matt Fried. He’s done a ton of improv and comedy writing at The Peoples Improv Theater, UCB, and iO in Chicago.
Yeah, the name sounds familiar. Anybody else I might’ve heard of in it?
Paul Valenti of The Chris and Paul Show, the INNY-nominated, Edinburgh Fringe Festival-honored sketch comedy group, is directing it. He’s very funny.
Yeah! I love Chris and Paul! Who else???
Phil Casale, JessAnn Smith, Mark Stetson, Lyssa Mandel, Jodi Jett, Toby Knops, Josh Hurley, Megrez Mosher, and Adam Hamway to boot!
I like this more and more. When and where can I see it?
We open Thursday, March 22nd at 7:30 p.m. at The Tank Theater in New York City. Then, in April, the show moves to The Kraine Theater for a run on April 10th, 17th, and 24th, all at 8:00 p.m. All shows at $5.
$5?!?!? What’s the catch?
No catch. This is a show we want as many people to see as possible, and it’s so hard to not be broke in New York. So, we the producers thought: “Let’s give them this great show for $5, PLUS more prizes for our audience.”
There’s more?!?!? What???
You’ll have to come and see the show for yourself. Only $5 will get you a ticket, a special gift, and a great show. What more could you want?
In the new Jesus Christ Superstar, everybody’s shirtless and ripped.
You don’t want to see anybody with their shirt off in this show. Believe me. And don’t ask Matt Fried to do, because he will and then he’ll never put it back on.
