I co-wrote this show with some fellow Thunderbirds AND I’m doing sound design and music composition. It’s funny and silly and a little grownup. More info below!
KQED’s Sam Hurwitt says,
“…A lot of the play’s hilarity comes from the ridiculousness of the TV shows themselves, especially the game show There’s a Squid in My Pants, Maybe, with Sberlo as a glowering, cigar-chomping clown. We get tastes of tough-as-nails judge reality shows, formulaic sitcoms, cop shows, soap operas, and everything in between, including a well-aimed jab at a beloved cult series…”
K.R.A.P. TV, the last television station to broadcast live, has just become the battleground for the future of entertainment, technology, and hyperbole.
When traditional programming devotees are pitted against hipsters of new media, the results are unexpected and lol.
This original comedy brings K.R.A.P. to the stage where audiences will witness the age-old struggle of pride of work versus the all-mighty dollar.
Will our heroine Beth, be able to keep the station afloat, or will the evil Commodore entice everyone to waste their days with online personality quizzes?
Turning traditional work-place melodrama on its ear, this show asks which is better: enduring true love or grabbing tacos with your paramour du jour?
Now in its sixteenth year of bringing original, locally written stage comedies to San Francisco and the Bay Area, the Thunderbird Theatre Company proudly presents: Show Down!
