Great news! We loved Mijo so much we are doing it again (and also maybe because we need to get a video recording) and we’re opening it up for an audience.
The show starts at 8pm at Rudyard’s British Pub and is $5.
We love this show and are so happy to be able to do it again. We hope to see you there.
PS – If you missed it the first time, here is how our fancy press release explained it -
In Japan, Benshi performers memorize western movies and then reinterpret the story for an
eastern audience. BooTown’s crew (BooTown founder Emily Hynds, Blake Whitaker and Joe
Wozny) will retell the story of two battling bar bouncers through their own satirical commentary
backed by the musical stylings of local blues hound Lucas Gorham (Grandfather Child).
“Hopefully, the audience will go away with a ton of laughs, and the overwhelming urge to high-
five their best friend. Or just roundhouse kick someone,” Burleson (BooTown Associate Artistic Director) says.
