This incredible, sort-of-true story centers on Dr. John Broadus Watson, the father of Behaviorism and modern advertising. Famous for his "Little Albert" experiment in which a baby was conditioned to fear things he had previously loved, Dr. Broadus lost his job at John Hopkins after an affair with a lab assistant. He then applied his behavioral methods to the world of advertising and forever changed the world. Over 10 years in the making, the hilarious musical comes from the comedy writing team Burglars of Hamm and was completed with a commission from the Center Theatre Group and a Kickstarter funding campaign. You'll laugh, you'll cry, but it's probably all just emotional conditioning. Learn More

This was a great last minute ad to my black box stage adventure in LA during my last visit.
This troop performs discarded scripts - or "dumpster dive" scripts word for word as they were written - its very funny stuff.
and reminds me much of my own IM texts
and bad Phone texts -- when we write does for done.
or "flood" really meaning to write "floor."
None this less
this night of Awful Film Scripts - is a Gem.
If you find free tickets here in the site
-- snatch them up
PS make sure the real writer is not in attendance - he or she would be swinging a bat - so run.

This show was hilarious and worth absolutely every penny. An awful, awful screenplay sets the stage for this prodution in which stage directions are read by a Masterpiece Theatre-like host while the cast hams it up through the terrible dialogue,...continued
Hundreds of untrained writers from around the world send their unsolicited, unregistered scripts to Hollywood production companies in the hopes that their story will rise above the rest to be made into a feature film. Most never even get read… until now. Magnum Opus Theatre presents an unbelievably awful screenplay, compressed but otherwise unaltered… word for word. *
