Hasty Pudding Theatricals Announce THERE WILL BE FLOOD for 3/9-10
The Hasty Pudding Theatricals of Harvard University is coming to New York City this weekend. They will present HPT 164: THERE WILL BE FLOOD on March 9th and 10th at the Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College.
About the show: "In the future, an ancient prophecy has come true and a massive flood threatens to destroy the world! In order to save humanity, a wayward crew of futuristic time travelers must journey to the past to stop that prophecy from ever being made. Led by the courageous space cowgirl Lauren Forcement, the adventurers travel back one ZILLION years to find a prehistoric world that is very different from the one we learned about in school. Along their mission, they meet a variety of prehistoric characters, including the half-witted caveman Homer Erectus, the uninspired cave painter Zach Rebleu, and the biblical false prophet Isaiah Littleprayer. But when these prehistoric people mistake the time travelers for gods, they incur the wrath of the loco Mayan deity Paco Lips. Can the time travelers survive the past long enough to save the future? Will the chubby cherub Angela Foodcake lose enough weight to fly again? Will the desperate dinosaur Tyra Nassaurus find a mate before her species goes extinct? Can the bible’s first woman Eve Olution convince everybody that creationism is false? Find out as you get swept away by the Hasty Pudding Theatricals’ 164th production, There Will Be Flood!"
As the oldest theatrical troupe in the nation, the Hasty Pudding Theatricals performs a student-written drag burlesque production annually.
Each year, the troupe also awards a Man and Woman of the Year award to those who have made a lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment. This year, the honor was bestowed upon Claire Danes and Jason Segel.
