About this show

The Open Fist Theatre Company presents the world premiere of Joe's Garage, based on the Frank Zappa album of the same name. The work was adapted by Pat Towne (who also directs) and Michael Franco and features musical direction by Ross Wright and choreography by Jennifer Lettelleir. The show tells the story of Joe -- a simple guitar player in a garage band -- as he is drawn into the dark and nightmarish world of the music business. As Joe deteriorates from betrayal, disease, and madness, our narrator, the Central Scrutinizer asserts that music is responsible for his demise, and is therefore evil.
