Loaded Murders

Loaded Gun Theory is doing the Jules Feiffer play Little Murders. You can use the button on the right there to go buy some tickets, and see what looks like a really cool play.

Also, heads up, because there's a party on Saturday night after the show that will feature a free keg of beer. Yum! You can't lose with free beer!*

Some show details ripped right from the LGT page:
The Newquists are your typical American family: Mom is overbearing and belittling, Dad is milquetoast but don't call him Carol (even though it's his name), Brother likes to wear Sister's shoes and Sister wears the pants in her relationship with her fiancée Alfred, who knows how to roll with the punches: he figures if you daydream while being mugged, it won't hurt so much. As their neighborhood is besieged by snipers taking out random citizens, the real violence goes down in their apartment. Join LGT for their first foray into non-original work with a script that still has that LGT edge.

*I lie, you can lose with free beer, but this is good free beer, so you won't lose in this case.

You might enjoy this Mr. Media podcast interview with cartoonist Jules Feiffer, who talks about the new collection of his comic strips from the Village Voice, getting his start with Will Eisner on The Spirit, his plays (Little Murders), his movies (Carnal Knowledge, Popeye), the Disney musical adaptation of The Man in the Ceiling, and his forthcoming memoirs.
