It is 1993, there is a new president in the White House, Jurassic Park is about to tear up the box office, and Wally Waterman is on the verge of inventing the teleporter. But weird science gets even weirder when Wally accidentally clones himself. Is NYC big enough for two giant, identical egos? It will take nothing short of a movie star, international espionage, and a few pigeons to find out. Featuring a gleefully breezy score, CLONED! is door-slamming, yodel-happy, bird-squawking fun!
