Dad's Garage to Present 'SEX,' 2/28
by BWW News Desk - Feb 21, 2014

On Friday, February 28th at 8pm, Dad's Garage Theatre Company will be having Sex a.k.a. Wieners and Boobs live onstage at 7 Stages Theatre in Little 5 Points. Written by Joe Lo Truglio, Michael Showalter, and David Wain (the writers of Stella, Wet Hot American Summer, and The State) back in the day, this show is exactly what you'd expect from that trio of unique comic geniuses - a super silly romp perfect for the guys and gals of Dad's Garage. But what's it about you ask? Well, it's the most un-classic, classic western you could imagine. You see, there's a new sheriff in town, and that town is Teaneck, New Jersey - a corrupt little place run by the infamous crime boss Tad Theatreman. Tad, along with his league of henchmen, hookers, and gigolos have the mayor and the rest of the townsfolk living in fear, but they don't dare say a word or else all the money the brothels bring in just might dry up! Oh, and did we mention there's a love story? That's right, with high noon looming for Jack, our hero's life gets a little complicated when he falls head over heels for Hillary, a recent divorcee that sends his heart aflutter. Will Jack be able to defeat the bad guy, get the girl, and save the city from sin? Or will the wieners and boobs triumph? (more...)
