Funny, Quirky, Fluffy

See it if A street show that is funny, political but not too in your face. Sets are well thought of. Grab a crate and watch.

"A tuneful and anarchic mix of rock, rap, physics, politics, satire, and vaudeville, featuring scenes as varied as a classroom in New York City, a Black Hole in the Universe, and Club Mad, 2000 feet below Mar-a-Lago, each presented in hand-painted scenes on a hand-cranked scrolling backdrop. Ok, so the show is not subtle. But it is fun, and entertaining, and there is even something of an arc, and a loud, clear, and hopeful message."
