The Magnificent Revengers
The Magnificent Revengers by Matt Cox and directed by Kristin McCarthy Parker, reunited the dynamic creative team behind Puffs to create an entirely new kind of theatrical experience. Following the run-away success of its developmental engagement at the University of Florida, The Magnificent Revengers is aiming to premiere off-Broadway in the summer of 2018. The Magnificent Revengers is basically Kill Bill set in a spaghetti Western combined with gaming and audience interactivity, filtered through the oddball comedy. In the play, you are Dorothy Kelly… literally. Dorothy must avenge the murder of her brother, and the audience decides how she will do it. At over three dozen key moments in the play, using our proprietary, patent-pending technology, the audience votes on what Dorothy should do next, using an incredibly simple tool in the browser of their smart device. Audiences at the University of Florida and in private presentations in NYC leapt at the chance to take an active role in the story they’re seeing. It is the first in a planned series of plays in the never-before seen genre of interactive theater.
Reefer Madness: The Musical
Reefer Madness: The Musical by Dan Studney and Kevin Murphy, satirizes the 1938 propaganda film known as Reefer Madness. In dramatizing how even one hit of marijuana turns good, law-abiding kids into sex-crazed murders. The show raises thorny questions over not just society's attitudes towards cannabis but society's willingness to believe whatever the government tells us. Tony Award winning talent lead a stellar cast that will have you rocking along to this hilarious show's "infectious pop score" (New York Times). Tilted Windmills recently acquired the rights to Reefer Madness, the cult-hit musical that was ahead of its time when it debuted 20 years ago. We're excited to share it with a new generation of theatergoers and are currently planning to produce it out-of-town in the 2018/2019 season.
