Ich Liebe Jesus!
This weekend, engage in some holiday cheer. Robert Honeywell's despairing, wicked, fun musical about the joys of Christian Christmas, Ich Liebe Jesus, has three more performances: Friday, Saturday and Sunday the 7th, 8th and 9th. You should and must attend. You are compelled to attend by duty. It's a German thing.
Find more info at the Brick.
The show features the only truly nasty bit of song I've ever seen on stage about lactose tolerance. Delightful. Mean, mean, mean and fun. The whole cast is great, but the MC...Jenny Lee Mitchell? Is just plain amazing.
It's on a double bill with Piper McKenzie's lovely and brief The Ultimate Fate of the Solo System and Other Plays Without Words. It feels like a collection of really groovy b-sides from one of your favorite bands.
Go! And See It!
