Host Jonathan Zarov talks with writer/director Malissa Pettersen and Broom St Theater Artistic Director Heather Renken about the stage production: 8ooth Annual Salvation Swing-Off.
The Broom Street Theater announces its first show of the 2016 season, The 800th Annual Salvation Swing-Off, a biblical romp about bureaucracy and the great beyond, written and directed by Malissa Petterson.
To break up the monotony of soul-cleansing in Purgatory’s laundromat, inbetweeners are given the opportunity to compete for a golden ticket to the Greater Side: in a good, old-fashioned dance-a-thon. As couples rival for immediate rapture, the angels cope with the afterlife business beadledom while red tape, misplaced coversheets, and pin-up she-devils stand by to throw a red sock in with the bleach load. All in an eternity’s work.
The show will run form January 6th until January 30th. More details will be available on the theater’s website bstonline.org .
