A vaudevillian take on mortality that stares death in the face and laughs

Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

Stolen Chair wakes the dead in Kiran Rikhye’s latest “unholy hybrid,” THEATRE IS DEAD AND SO ARE YOU, an irreverent funeral for the stage. A ragtag bunch of variety hacks are laying their sometimes beloved MC to rest, performing his funeral live, travelling from city to city, until such time as his body is too decomposed to make the proceedings pleasant. Their "eulogies" are performed à la classic variety, with slapstick, melodrama, song & dance, and feats of illusion and mentalism, each taking its own deadly turn as they celebrate the life and death of their dearly departed dead dead dead friend. Even in their joyous performance, a spectre looms as each knows they've all been exposed to the fatal disease that killed their MC: Life. Watch these seasoned has-beens kill theatre, live before your very eyes.
