We don’t want to simply tell stories. Telling stories is as easy as flapping your gums; we want to tell STORIES.
We want to tell operas and sonnets and romantic fables and epic poems that wake you up at 3am all sweaty and breathless for an ending that made you squirm uncomfortably as you sat in the audience next to that guy with the bad hair who never laughed but you could tell he wanted to. We want to build worlds that have robot ninjas and end-of-their-rope housewives and cynical queens and race car drivers and maybe an occasional talking duck.
And we want you to tell them with us. We don’t always want to hold the reigns, sometimes we’re happy sitting in the wagon back there with the other cowboys; you can go ahead and crack the whip. We’ll just be here singing softly and keeping our hats on straight and our six-shooters well oiled.
So nothing is off limits all up in here. The people who created A Public Fit have been making theater in Las Vegas since 1976 and even we don’t think we’ve heard it all. You fire away and we’ll fire back. And between us we’ll make a conversation that might be worthwhile.
And if nothing else, we may get a good story out of it.
