List Of Shows Coming Soon
We Ain't Ever Gonna Break Up: The Hymon & Parfunkel Story is the first jukebox musical about, and featuring the songs of, a band that never existed. This original two-man folk musical parodies the tired tropes of jukebox musicals like Jersey Boys, Buddy, Mamma Mia, Beautiful, Ain't Too Proud, Tina, Always, Patsy Cline, The Cher Show...and the 12 inevitable "new" bio-musicals coming soon. Saul Hymon & Bart Parfunkel "star" in their own musical, playing themselves, their own instruments, and the dozens of other characters they meet along the way, creating a uniquely virtuosic musical farce about brotherhood, partnership and the power of collaboration...if they don't break up first.
This is not a musical, it's a lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek take on the classic film from the writer-director of Night of the Living Dead, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and The Killer Angels. Together with Maverick Light & Magic, you'll experience a show unlike anything the world has seen before in The Eighth Wonder of the World, King Kong. When a movie director learns of a mysterious island and a legend of a beast known as Kong, he puts together an expedition to capture the discovery on film ... and the rest of the story follows the Delos W. Lovelace novel and the famous film, with only minor changes and additions. Experience this Staged Cinema Production at the Maverick Theater in Fullerton.
What if Romeo had stayed helplessly in love with Rosaline instead of Juliet? Or if Mercutio and Tybalt hadn't died...but had gotten together instead? In this Shakespearean take on the "Choose Your Own Ending" model, the audience casts votes throughout the performance to determine which course true love will take; ultimately deciding whether everybody lives or everybody dies. With eight dramatically different possible endings, this isn't the tale of star-crossed lovers that you read in high school. It's an irreverent, madcap reimagining of Shakespeare's most beloved romance.
