Cloud City Presents MARY KATE OLSEN IS OUR GOD
Come join in worship with other devotees of America's favorite TV Baby Twin Turned Fashionista Millionaire (and NO, we are NOT talking about Ashley)! With a combination of vibrant song and prayer, spontaneous testimonials and special guests, Mary Kate Disciples Natasha Vaynblat, Jessie Jolles and Katie Hartman, lead the absurdly reverent service.
Mary Kate Olsen has touched us all. That promotion at work? That was Mary Kate rewarding you for all your hard work. When your hamster died? That was Mary Kate helping you learn hard life lessons. When there was only one pair of footsteps in the sand? That was Mary Kate carrying you. We'll be singing hymns from the twin's divine discography, modeling styles from their iconic Walmart line, and sacrificing our own "Ashleys" in an effort to find an Olivier Sarkozy-kind of love. With special guests Becky Yamamoto (NYTVF, Younger, Super Deluxe), Jeff Seal, (Gothamist, Bankrukt), Matt Harkins and Viviana Olen (Tonya Harding and NANCY KERRIGAN Museum, "Olsen Twins Hiding From the Paparazzi" exhibit).
_____ Is Our God is a bi-monthly comedy variety worship service that changes its idol every show. Upcoming shows might idolize reality star turned fashion mogul Lauren Conrad, modern mystical legend Raven-Symoné, or that freaky cartoon bear family from the Charmin toilet paper commercials.
