Description

Voted “Standout New Work” by the Silicon Valley Small Venue Theatre Awards, this original musical is a kick for anyone who loves TV game shows like What’s My Line, Price is Right, Queen for a Day, Beat the Clock, I’ve Got a Secret and Match Game. The creators pay homage to all of those game shows and many more in this new musical, which combines the excitement of live TV game shows with the scandal of the 1950s rigged quiz show investigations. Patrons are encouraged to get their tickets early and ask for a Nielsen Seat to help influence the outcome of the show.
