Ugly Betty meets The Terminator in this new sci-fi musical by D'Arcy Drollinger (Shit & Champagne, Project: Lohan). When lonely, put-upon secretary Eileen spots an ad for a fully functioning mechanical male companion, she takes her future by the reigns and places an order. Mr. Irresistible soon arrives on her doorstep and, true to fantasy, a romance blossoms. Just one problem: He's not her mail-order groom. He's an exterminator on a service call. Soon the official Acme Brand Mr. Irresistible comes knocking, and the humble exterminator can't compete with the custom-made dream man. But just as Eileen is settling into a state of bliss with her new perfect beau, a coworker she's been complaining about turns up dead, and Eileen becomes suspicious of her robotic Romeo. She contemplates sending him back -- where he'll be disassembled for parts -- but Mr. Irresistible catches on and begins a fight for his life. Will Eileen finally find her voice and learn where true love has been all along? Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
Playwright Joe Landry’s website
It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is based on Frank Capra’s classic holiday film starring Jimmy Stewart & Donna Reed. A small-town, good citizen gives into despair when his noble dreams are sabotaged. Saved from suicide by a bumbling guardian angel, he is shown the significance of his life. This holiday favorite is performed in the style of the 1940s live radio broadcasts: Actors lend their voices to the dozens of characters as well as produce the sound effects. Perfect for the whole family, revisit this vibrant celebration of simple goodwill, community, and cheer in the face of hardship.
Director: Christian Phillips
Cast: James Baldock, John Krause, Christian Phillips, Duncan Phillips, Carole Robinson, Phaedra Starr
