Sometimes the home team needs a big push, and here’s your chance. You’ve heard me talk about the theater company run by my brother Sean, his wife Jordana, and the legend-in-progress Mac Rogers, particularly the boffo success of Fleet Week two years ago – and their Christmas show, which had moments that STILL make me laugh, years later in the car, a propos of nothing. Last year’s “Air Guitar” was somewhat snakebit, a wonderful idea that was given the worst venue in Manhattan, along with some disastrous personnel (my opinion, not theirs).
In the “Got Back Up On The Horse But Quick” department, they were chosen by the NY Fringe Festival yet again for Hail Satan, a stunning mix of genres that has already received raves from all the secondary sources. Hell, longtime NY theater critic David Cote hates the Fringe, but loves “Hail Satan” so much he is challenging someone to produce it for a real run.
This is where YOU come in, everyone in New York City and the Tri-State Area! The show tonight will be attended by the reviewer for Time Out NY, and a good showing could propel them in the right direction. They need to bloat the place up, and fill it with gasps and laughs. So if you were even remotely thinking of theater this evening, buy your ticket now, now, now!
Shit, if you go to the show tonight, I will personally buy you a shot of almost-top shelf liquor when I get to NYC on Wednesday. If you can’t see this one, there are three other performances, but it’s make-or-break time. God bless our Tar Heel boys and girls, and yes, god bless “Satan”!
