Well, that’s what the title says. And we’re suckers for titles. This one isn’t an all time great but it definitely makes you think IMPORTANT, even if its ironic. You know what? We have no idea what the show is about, we haven’t seen it. BUT with a title like that… how can you not???

This is one of those titles that doesn’t really roll off the tongue. Then again, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was a surprise hit, so maybe this one will do the same. At Here, the venue where The Vagina Monologues started, about a hundred years ago.

The tag line is “the show the NYPD doesn’t want you to see”. With a title like that, we can’t imagine why. I guess there’s already a show called “Naked Cops Doing Inappropriate Things”. That’s not as catchy, though. Written by Michael “Fletcher” Tester, who, according to BroadwayClubhouse.com, once wrote a musical called Amoebas On Parade: A Single Celled Musical!!, which he describes as “the CATS formula [distilled] to it’s essence”. Sounds like you at least won’t be bored.

The namesake of one of the greatest comedians of all time will make his NYC Theatrical Debut… in a show called BEST LITTLE CRACKHOUSE IN PHILLY (photo below is from the show). As the description says “Pretty Woman meets Best Little Whorehouse — and gives new meaning to hoedown!”. Hey, everyone’s got to start somewhere. We love it when celebrities, and even celebrity offspring, do off-off theater. Makes us proud.
Lots more events happening at Downeast Arts Center including something called “THE INTERNATIONAL CRINGE FESTIVAL” (love that name!); see below for the full press release or visit NYArtists.org.

Always important to have a good title. As long as nobody unfreezes Walt Disney, this production should be safe.
