LOS ANGELES PREMIERE! After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors keep the spark of human spirit alive by telling stories around a campfire. As the years wear on, these stories expand into the realm of myth. At turns sidesplitting and bone-chilling, Mr. Burns also features an unusual approach for the Fools: each act will be staged in a different theater space in the Fools complex, transporting the audience as we search for the light.

"...both scary and sweet, funny but dead serious, unique and wonderfully theatrical." -TIME Magazine

"...makes us appreciate anew the profound value of storytelling in and of itself." -The New York Times

Friday, October 20: DONATE WHAT YOU CAN. It's "Pay What You Can" with a twist! Half of all proceeds for this performance will be donated to a local charity TBA. Make your reservation online and pay at the door.
