WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Fancy Theater Blues! showcases Rick McCabe, an emerging playwright tackling the trials and tribulations of life in theater. Doing all he can to keep his head above water, McCabe is purposelessly hammered down by a tyrant of a girlfriend. To add pain to injury, a mysterious theater critic, Albert Fish, rips McCabe apart in a scathing review of his latest production, Cunt in Blue Paint! The star of the show, seemingly washed up Gorgeous Marty Makers, struggles with confidence and whether or not gaining the approval of another is worth taking someone's life over. Following tragedy, a questionable and quizzical Detective Billy Catskill berates McCabe with questions that no one can seem to find the answers to. By way of spirit, Gorgeous' daughter Lulu, a practicing Satanist, shows McCabe just what it means to fend for one's self and how ultimately, to Hail Satan!
