BROKEN DART PLAYERS PRESENT “MY LIFE IS A SITCOM,” TWO ORIGINAL LIVE SITCOMS BASED ON LOCAL LIVES, APRIL 16-17 AT MADISON’S BRINK LOUNGE .
The premise is new but simple. People were asked to enter submissions telling why some aspect of their life may just be great sitcom fodder. Writers Rob Matsushita (Chad Vader, Broom Street Theatre’s “Boogie” series) and the team of Karen Saari and Sunny Schomaker (Mercury Players Blitz veterans) chose the top two premises and have written original sitcoms based on them. Composer Andrew Rohn (VO5, Walmartopia) is composing theme songs for each.
The sitcoms will be performed live, along with a few live commercials. The show is meant to embrace the sitcom genre while also poking a little fun.
The two shows within the show are “Palmer.” written by Rob Matsushita, which is a “Broad City”-esque comedy about a local cabbie who plays in the Madison Gay Hockey Association. The second is “Band for Life,” by Karen Saari and Sunny Schomaker, about local disco band VO5 as the members juggle the music scene, families and day jobs.
“My Life is a Sitcom” will be staged April 16-17, 7:30 p.m. at the Brink Lounge, 701 E. Washington Ave.
Tickets are $15. Buy tickets at the door, or online at thebrinklounge.com.
