Go See Glee Club Now

OK, I talked about Matt Freeman's Glee Club last summer, when it played at the Brick's Anti-Depressant Festival. It's now in previews at Blue Coyote for a full run downtown at the Access. We all know the drill here - your friends tell you about shows, they're showcases, we all wait until the last weekend, slap our heads and say "oh crap, I have to get to it this weekend before it closes." We go begging for houses the first two weeks and then turn people away the last weekend.

This is not gonna work here. Go book a ticket now. It was full up on the first preview last night. No one's full at first preview. The Wooster Group is not full up at first previews. That's when you try a wrangle a comp. Trust me, this will fill up fast.

It's dark, it's mean, it's funny as hell, and it's the most fun you'll ever have with people who are this rotten.

And hey - this meant nothing to me because I was not watching children's programming in the nineties - but the guy from "Blue's Clues" is in it.

I hope children who remember him from the thing with the cartoon dog do NOT show up at this. It might be traumatizing for them to hear their lovable childhood pal talk about the difficulties of getting through a scrotum without power tools.
