OPENING MAY 19!

Performance Dates: May 19 – 29*. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:30 PM. Sunday matinees on May 22 & 29 at 2:00 PM. Scroll below
About the show: What will endure when the cataclysm arrives – when the grid fails, society crumbles, and we’re faced with the task of rebuilding? Can art remake a civilization? Mr. Burns propels us forward and imagines a future where Bart Simpson and the pop culture references of one era evolve into the mythology of another.
Tucker Lucas (The Majority, Santaland Diaries), production director said, “Mr. Burns is a show about a community living in a post-apocalyptic world where there is no more electricity and so to entertain each other the community members stage old episodes of The Simpsons as plays.”
