About this show

"Funny, surreal, and nonchalantly cosmic, Harrington and Kauffman are the hipster heirs to the Marx Brothers." - Mark O'Donnell, co-author of Hairspray In this sly comedy, an accordion-playing Belgian cabaret singer named Gustave Flaubert and his sidekick Nhar have failed in their quest to find the Yeti at the North Pole, but forge ahead to perform one last show for the audience they have dreamed in their hypothermia-induced hallucination. As they succumb slowly to the Arctic cold, Gustave and Nhar recount the tale of how they ended up at the North Pole, punctuated by occasional musical interludes and live re-enactments, such as the Song of the Importance of the European Grandmother, the Mutiny of the Sled Dogs, and the famed Norwegian Fish-Rod Bucket Toss. Meanwhile, audience members are encouraged to throw golf balls at Gustave and Nhar to keep them awake. Written and performed by Richard Harrington and Chris Kauffman directed by Patricia Buckley.
