Updated: Chicago comedy gets more Sluts
Yesterday's Annoyance newsletter contained an exciting piece of info that "hasn't even hit the press yet" (we're on it): They're bringing back Co-Ed Prison Sluts!
This summer's the shocker theater's 20th anniversary, and the celebration ends with a resurrection of the longest running musical of all time in Chicago. Yep, it's not Wicked.
July 11 is the official opening date, which also serves as a benefit to subsidize a trip to send the cast of Love is Dead (its hilarious necrophilia-themed musical) to the New York Fringe Festival. $25 scores you a ticket to the show and, according to the newsletter:
* A complimentary glass of champagne for the champagne toast
* A drawing for souvenir wall tiles from the set signed by the original cast of Co-ed Prison Sluts
* A drawing for the chance to play The Warden in the show, and invite 20 of your friends to watch you and
* A post-show pizza party (hey, it's prison - you get champagne, what do you want, canapés?)
The evening's hosted by Susan Messing, who starred in the original run, and Mick Napier, the Annoyance's co-founder. I can't wait.
Mike Canale at the Annoyance has shared the cast list:
Ellen Stoneking (reprising her role as the Dame)
Napier is directing and Lisa McQueen will, of course, supply the music.
