Shortly after a worldwide apocalyptic event, electric power has disappeared, and a group of survivors gathers around a campfire trying to recall the past. They remember and start to recite an episode from the TV show The Simpsons.
Welcome to Mr. Burns: a post-electric play by Anne Washburn. This dark comedy mixes Gilbert and Sullivan, pop songs, dance, re-creations of television ads, and ritual performance in an entertaining and strangely amusing commentary on modern culture. What will we, who are tied so closely to technology, do if it disappears? What parts of our lives will we hold dear and bring with us? How does mythology evolve?
Directed by Michael J. Arndt and choreography by Jeff Wallach.
