The Missoula Oblongata's the 50 Greatest Ladies and Gentlemen 

When: Thu., Aug. 6, 9 p.m. 2009
Their fourth full-scale touring production, The Missoula Oblongata's "The 50 Greatest Ladies and Gentlemen", takes place just after the Treaty of Versailles. A veteran who is genetically predisposed to cowardice searches for his brother from whom he's received a mysterious letter. When the veteran comes upon the town from whence the letter came, he finds that his brother (and the rest of the town) have been caught in a dance mania—a hysterical mass tarantism. With no one else around, the veteran befriends a spider—likely the one who is responsible for the tarantism, and together, they go up against the town doctor who believes that breakfast is beneath love. The company always creates their own lighting, interactive set, and original score played live. Sponsored by Epiphany, $6-10 Suggested Donation.
