The Falcon Theatre is thrilled to present CHiPS the Musical, presented by the Troubadour Theater Company, a world premiere musical parody with original story and music written by Rick Batalla & Henry Phillips, and directed by Matt Walker. Do you crave some good, oldfashioned police work where men in overly tight uniforms dance, sing and catch the bad guys? Look no further!
Take a journey down the 405 Freeway circa the 1970s when highways were hopping and surface streets were for sissies - when you could get from Downtown to the Westside in 20 minutes, and not just in a Toyota. There you'll find those super-flashy stewards of safety and suave-ness, Ponch and John, in CHiPS the Musical. Rest assured, Ponch and John are still wearing their well-starched uniforms, packin' the heat, and looking fine enough to cause a fender-bender while battling criminals of the worst kind: female eco-terrorists sporting roller skates and short shorts! The boys on bikes are back...and this time, they're singing!
