The Brave New Workshop Theatre (BNW) has announced its 2013 spring show: "Lance Armstrong's Steroid-Pumped Comedy Revue: A Cheater's Guide to Winning."
Previews for the show run March 14 - 21, 2013, with opening night on March 22. The show runs through June 29. All performances are at the Brave New Workshop Theatre main stage at 824 Hennepin Avenue, Downtown Minneapolis. Tickets for "Lance Armstrong's Steroid-Pumped Comedy Revue" are on sale now at (612) 332-6620 or http://theatre.bravenewworkshop.com/.
"Lance Armstrong's Steroid-Pumped Comedy Revue: A Cheater's Guide to Winning" is the 280th comedy revue by the BNW, and one that promises to continue the theatre's long tradition of taking on the hot-button issues of the day with a mix of hilarious original sketch comedy and biting satire. With four of BNW's best and brightest actors taking the stage, "Lance Armstrong's Steroid-Pumped Comedy Revue" will be an all-guts, all-glory production sure to cross the (finish) line.
Inspiration for the show's title and theme comes straight from the headlines. "Now that Lance Armstrong has shown the world that doping is the new black, the Brave New Workshop is exploring cheating and dishonesty in all their many forms," says director Caleb McEwen. "It turns out that the only person to ever ride a bike in France while not hopped up on drugs is Mitt Romney."
"Lance Armstrong's Steroid-Pumped Comedy Revue" will feature returning BNW cast members Lauren Anderson, Bobby Gardner, Andy Hilbrands and Taj Ruler. This group was last featured in BNW's critical and popular hit "Fifty Shades of White: A Minnesota XXXMas." In addition, Anderson will be fresh off her work in the two-woman show "Babe Lincoln and the Vajazzled Badge of Courage." The show is directed by Caleb McEwen, with assistant direction by Katy McEwen. Peter Guertin returns as music director, and Dan Peltzman will provide technical direction.
