Ukulele Orchestra of Great Brooklyn Presents MISSIONARY IN MANHATTAN: A MORMON MUSICAL at UCB Tonight
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Brooklyn, will present MISSIONARY IN MANHATTAN: A MORMON MUSICAL, a musical comedy about the fundamentals of big hair, blind faith, and just how plural a marriage can get, tonight, May 8th, 2014 at 8pm and Wednesday, May 21st at 8pm at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre (307 W. 26th Street, between 8th and 9th Aves).
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Brooklyn penned MISSIONARY IN MANHATTAN, the story of three polygamist-pop stars on the hunt for their brother husband in New York City. Charles Gregory Howard has gone missing and was last seen at The Cubby Hole with his vocal coach named Gerard. Ukuleles in tow, Gretchen, Fanny, and Bunny Catherine will turn pop songs into "God Songs," lament, and stop at nothing to track down the father of their seven children. Missionary in Manhattan: A Mormon Musical hysterically lampoons the institution of marriage as the sister wives learn to accept their newfound independence, and face the hard truth that "Grindr is not for bill pay, it's for boyfriends." The show runs at a super swift 30 minutes and will be performed on the main stage at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Chelsea.
Performances of MISSIONARY IN MANHATTAN: A Mormon Musical are on 5/8 @ 8pm and 5/21 @ 8:00p. Tickets are $5 and available online at www.UCBTheatre.com.
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Brooklyn provides a theatrical home for southerners and an invitation to those untouched by southern charm to "party til the cows come home." The founding members of UOGB challenge a generation criticized for its apathy, detachment, and reliance on technology by demanding audience engagement through outrageous comedy, musical celebrations, and honest storytelling.
