MR. BURNS, A POST-ELECTRIC PLAY
A new play by ANNE WASHBURN (The Internationalist, Apparation)
Music by Obie winner MICHAEL FRIEDMAN (Love's Labour's Lost)
Directed by Obie winner STEVE COSSON (Gone Missing, Paris Commune)
WHAT WILL ENDURE WHEN THE CATACLYSM ARRIVES — when the grid fails, society crumbles, and we're faced with the task of rebuilding? Anne Washburn's imaginative dark comedy propels us forward nearly a century, following a new civilization stumbling into its future. A celebration of live theater, and of the resilience of Bart Simpson through the ages, Mr. Burns is an animated exploration of how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another.
The cast of Mr. Burns features Obie winner Quincy Tyler Bernstine (Ruined), Susannah Flood (Tribes), Gibson Frazier (There Are No More Big Secrets), Obie winner Matthew Maher (The Flick), Nedra McClyde (Headstrong), Jennifer R. Morris (Gone Missing), Colleen Werthmann (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), and Sam Breslin Wright (Paris Commune).
