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.

Sat 08/18/18 Plays With John and Wendy Blog review
“… a rollicking, entertaining hour full of lots of great music and lots of family-friendly fun.”
Sun 08/19/18 IndyFringe Talks Blog review
“… a tongue-in-cheek, satirical look at the American landscape since we all fell asleep one night in 2016 and awakened in disbelief, confusion, and despair… It’s about the lyrics. And that’s why you should go and listen to this show.”

Captain Ambivalent went to sleep in 2016 and woke up in this underground complex full of secret mutants and traitors controlled by an insane computer with no idea how we got there! And now, he’s been assigned to explain it all in song to you, the heroic survivors of the amnesia gas incident on level 12. Report to your re-education pods for a sidesplitting musical history of the future, the eighties, student debt, unintended consequences, and being replaced by a robot.

NOTE: Food and drink service available during each show!
