MIKE Throes Theater
About the show
Daniel finally got a real job, but now he's obsessed with a character-building app. His wife, Cynthia, is bubbling over with excitement about her punky younger sister Fanny coming for a visit. When Fanny and her boyfriend Abe arrive with a surprise, the secret pasts of all the characters -- including the one with the headless chicken -- come to light. Based on true events of a headless chicken named Mike and the illegal adoption agency run by Gertrude Pitkanen, MIKE features a folk-pop score with lyrics by Alexandra Zelman-Doring and music by Jodi Ferguson, who also performs live on guitar and ukulele.
