FUTURE STUFF FROM THE FUTURE

Waukegan, IL One-Man Show

Fear The Accordion

Three Brothers Theatre - 115 N. Genesee St. - $20, $15 student/senior/military
Sat 06/01/19 8:00 PM TICKETS

Greetings, loyal citizens of Waukegan Sector! In these dark times when our underground complex is increasingly infiltrated by secret mutants from the deadly wasteland outside our armor-plated walls, no weapon is more fearsome than the accordion. And no one wields an accordion more fearsomely than Captain Ambivalent.

In his Computer-mandated effort to explain how we got to this point, he looks to film classics like Metropolis, Star Wars, and Robocop, 1980s fear culture, and a role playing game called “Paranoia,” and discovers he may have had a little hand in The Complex himself.

Report to your re-education pods for sidesplitting musical madness!

New Song Lyrics: My Male Ego
03/28/19 - Inspired by a reference in someone else's song to a time Amelia Earhart got lost in the fog and landed in a field in Ireland. I guess this is my contribution to Women's History Month.
