Bukowsical! 2010

About the Album: Get ready for a completely irreverant, wacko, hilarious, tuneful, and, above all, raunchy new musical. Just in case there is any doubt about the meaning of the word "raunchy": Raunchy earthy, vulgar, and often sexually explicit. Bukowsical! will have you tapping your toes and sitting there with your mouth agape. Be sure to remove the kiddies from the listening environment because in case we haven't made it abundantly clear- this show is RAUNCHY!

Label: Kritzerland

Studio Theatre's VIETGONE is a Refugee Romance and Madcap Road Trip With Comic Book Sensibilities
by Stephi Wild - April 09, 2018

Vietgone by Qui Nguyen is the Vietnamese-American playwright's own creation story-a telling of his parents' 1975 refugee camp romance in a "geek theater" spectacle that's at turns affecting, sage, raucous, and fantastical. A screenwriter for Marvel Studios and founder of Obie Award-winning company Vampire Cowboys, Nguyen's work champions representation and diversity on stage while dripping with pop culture nods, contemporary music, and action-adventure narrative. The production pairs this Studio-commissioned playwright with director and Studio Cabinet member Natsu Onoda Power. Drawing on Vietgone's comic book aesthetics, Studio's Stage 4 is transformed into a garage concert with a live band and original funk-rock-punk-n-roll score, giving audiences a front row seat to this anything-but-typical story of boy meets girl.
