Shenanigans, Obfuscations, and Interruptions
An evening of Music-Theater with Fred Curchack, Scot Gresham-Lancaster, and Dean Terry.
Three utterly demented UTD Professors team up for an evening of death-defying music-theater. This one-night only event promises to annihilate all preconceptions about music, theater, and existence.
The performance includes startlingly original works, analog synthesis, rap, experimental guitar, mask and shadow-magic, mind-boggling illuminations of Shakespeare and William Blake poems, and potty-mouthed tales of Superman.
When: Friday, April 24 at 8pm
Where: Margo Jones Theatre in Fair Park - Magnolia Lounge
