Review from Steve Friedman

Bawdy, slapstick, clever; throwing out a huge number of gags. Because the cast is inspired, most of it works. A hoot. A fun eve of live entertainment.

Review from Lillian W.

Hilarious! How they can take a tragedy and make me laugh is fantastic! Great voices and physical comedy, in addition to zingy one-liners. Definitely not for children, however. My third Troubies show, always a joy to watch. Looking forward to...continued

Review from Glen En

Nothing live is better than a Troubie show, period. Top notch improvisational cast (and hot babes) work around Matt Walker's solid, silly, clever, slapsticky musicals. SEE THEM ALL.

Description

The Troubies return with the Maternal Musical that mashes up Sophocles’ “Oedipus the King” with the music of the King of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley. Oedipus has a Burning Love and he Can’t Help Falling in Love with his Mama. So Don’t Be Cruel and miss this musical parody by the theater company the Los Angeles Times calls “The Masters of Musical Spoofery.”
