WHAT ARE WE?
Based on the 2003 cult hit, “The Room”, the new parody musical imagines what would happen if the film’s writer, director, producer, and star (Tommy Wiseau) were allowed free reign of the stage adaptation. What follows is Tennessee Williams by way of Jerry Herman in a comedic farce complete with interpretive sex scenes, tuxedo football, and spoons.
Dubbed the “Citizen Kane” of bad movies, “The Room” has gained a cult following in recent years. A film based upon a behind the scenes tell all, “The Disaster Artist”, opens in theatres this December starring James Franco.
