Ruby Lynn Reyner directs and appears in her musical satire, "Singin' in the ER," a bad trip to the hospital that's performed in Playhouse of the Ridiculous style. More…
From the show:
The piece is inspired by ordeals in a New York City hospital suffered by the author and her husband. Now she believes that the only way to deal with such life changing experiences is through unrestrained, exorbitant laughter. The score includes the song, "Biggest Balls in Town," written by Reyner and Jackie Curtiss. Ms. Reyner was a star of Vaccarro's Playhouse of the Ridiculous, appearing in "Conquest of the Universe," "Heaven Grand In Amber Orbit" and "Trilby in La Bohemia" (Drama Desk Award for Acting), among others and starting her well-known band, Ruby and the Rednecks, with musicians she worked with in the Playhouse.
See it if You like farce musicals w/characters like Dr. Shlong. Large fun cast & wacky comedy. Lady w/arm falling off is told to "stop complaining"
Don't see it if You don't like fun 55 minute shows (that includes the 17 min late start). You don't like funny gags like "give the patient his OVERdose".
See it if If you appreciate very amateurish hard working folks doing their best but lacking in talent.
Don't see it if You have no patience for unprofessional untalented work, however well meaning it is.
See it if You are interested in a middle school performance whose writers and a tees are titilated by raunchy juvenile humor
Don't see it if You want a thrilling thought provoking professional performance
See it if You enjoy bad theater because this one is really bad. It looks as though it was improvised on the spot by a cast that was just assembled.
Don't see it if You don't like bad theater (see above).
See it if you like adolescent potty humor « performed » by folks who should not be seen on the professional stage
Don't see it if you don’t have an hour to waste, one that you will never get back
See it if you enjoy ridiculous shows. On the way in my friend and I were told that we looked like people who would try to sneak in. Not funny.
Don't see it if unless you are looking to see a show that's worse than a grade school play
See it if You like Andy Warhol type films with poor acting. See it if you think "shlong" and "vagina" are funny words.
Don't see it if ...you expect some level of professionalism in off-off-bway plays in NYC.
See it if You want to step back to the days of the Playhouse of the Ridiculous and the early days of off off Broadway.
Don't see it if Glitter, live music and over the top raunchy humor aren't your thing.
See it if The ER topic where doctors ignore their patients, would never seem funny to me if not brilliant Ruby Lynn Reyner who made me laugh to tears!
Don't see it if Not recommended for those who work in ER and don’t care about their patients.
See it if If you appreciate excellent vocal and accent work. Mila Levine, as the hospice nurse, Doomskaya, has great vocal color and comic timing
Don't see it if If you don't like farce, it's not for you.
