Overview

Local Queer Dan Kitrosser wrote a queer post-apocalyptic musical but has always hated scheduling actors. So now, just like the chronic masturbator, he’s going to do it himself! Playing all the roles, singing songs about the end of times, some of them are existential, all of them have innuendo.. But as Dan pieces his ‘end of day’s show together, song by song, reconstructing a deconstruction of disaster stories in this meta-cabaret, Dan’s show asks us, if we’re at the end, might we also be at a brand new beginning?
