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

“Similar to Scrooge’s tale, but Mula’s version is told with refreshing humor and insight.” CityBeat
“Four top class actors! If you are tired of seeing the classic Dickens story, see this alternative for a new spin.” Talkin’ Broadway
Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol begins when, after seven years, Jacob Marley is in a bind: Either redeem Ebenezer Scrooge before Christmas morning, or face eternal punishment. When haunting and chain rattling fall flat, Marley desperately attempts a series of cosmic tricks to put Scrooge on the road to righteousness – and save himself in the bargain. A handful of actors play dozens of roles in this joyous new holiday tradition for the whole family.
