Opening tomorrow night: An Alien Home Companion & The Titanic Comedy Hour!


It’s summer in New Orleans — and it has been for a month or so — which of course means it’s time for Running With Scissors’ summer show.

This year, we decided to do things a little differently. We wanted to mount a full production, but we also wanted keep some of the wackiness found in our annual staged readings.

As it turned out, our cast member, Jack, had penned a radio play of Alien a couple of years back, so we paired it with a similarly reworked script from Titanic and, voila: An Alien Home Companion & The Titanic Comedy Hour was born.

There are a couple of catches, though:

1. We’re performing at the AllWays Theatre, where we haven’t been in over ten years.

2. We’re only running for two weeks. Because, you know, some of us need vacations. Desperately.

Bottom line: grab your tickets early, and head on down to 2240 St. Claude for a night of naughty, retro radio hijinks. The fun starts tomorrow night…
