Adapted from Nikolai Gogol by Dane Eissler
Music & Lyrics by Dane Eissler & Tyler Garamella
Directed by Dane Eissler
This new musical adaptation of an absurdist classic premiered as an EgoPo midseason event
In this fast-paced adaptation of Gogol's absurd classic, a troupe of young and angry workers take over the EgoPo midseason event in an act of socio-political theater revolution (even the stage hands are in on it) to tell a story of political corruption, classism, and the plight of the proletariat. Audience were able to gnosh on Olad'ya (Potato Pancakes), Cheese Blintzes, and cocktails before the action invades in this cabaret-style event.
Featuring: Andrew Clotworthy, Kelly Filios, Jenna Kuerzi, Tori Mittelman, Michael Patrick Pliskin, Evan Raines, and Emily Schuman, as well as Heather Baisley, Abby Gardner, AJ Klein, Emily McHale, Colleen Murphy, and Kristy Joe Slough.
