"Gobble gobble, mother$&@%!" To anyone who's seen the unabashedly crass and offensive horror-comedy cult hit ThanksKilling, those words should be familiar. For anyone who hasn't seen the B-movie bonanza -- in which a filth-spouting, misogynistic, possessed, psychopathic turkey (portrayed by a hand puppet) goes on a killing spree -- that catch phrase should provide a pretty good barometer as to the type of entertainment on offer here. Throw some ridiculous songs into the mix and you have the deliriously offbeat stage comedy: ThanksKilling the Musical. If you're looking to kick traditional holiday entertainment to the curb, you'd be hard-pressed to find a bigger boot than this hilarious show. Learn More

This was an amazing theatrical experience. I came expecting a traditional Greek drama and possible boredom or lewd repetitive attempts at humor. However, this show was thoroughly entertaining, funny, and moving. The humor was quite raunchy so definitely be forewarned. But behind all the phallus jokes and other sexual references was a wonderful commentary on feminism and the futility of war that is fully relevant today. Clever set design and costumes and a great ensemble production overall.
Run Time: 85 minutes (no intermission) Recommended for audiences age 13 and older.
