About this show

AM-BO Land? Why is the madame despot so UPSET at being named Time's "Woman of the Year" only ONCE? Did that LUNATIC photographer really get an incredible shot of his own arm FLYING OFF? Is it true they sent an INNOCENT, GREEN reporter to "Get that Story?" How could his editor tell him to ENJOY himself?! In Amlin Gray's "nightmare comedy," the Obie-award winning, How I Got That Story, our wet-behind-the-ears Reporter goes from village to village, jungle battlefield to bombing mission, encountering the surreal world of a pseudo Vietnam. An insane phantasmagoria of deeply ironic horrors, How I Got That Story illuminates the chilling lunacy of death and destruction that is warfare.

John Kuntz is featured as the "Historical Event," creating over 20 roles and Chris Thorn is the green "Reporter!"

"Painfully funny...recaptures both the black comedy and the bottomless tragedy of Vietnam...with the simple magic of pure theater." -- New York Times
