This month, the feminist comedy group Critical Crop Top will continue its 2018 season with a new live sketch show titled “Critical Crop Top Enters the Multiverse.”
Critical Crop Top, which was founded by three women, creates comedy shows that comment on a variety of social justice issues in order to “create enlightening comedic content that gives women, people of color, LGBTQ and other underrepresented voices a place to tell their stories,” a press release from the group says.
A mix of classic physical comedy, political satire and bawdy humor, the latest show is written, directed and performed by returning ensemble members as well as some new faces. The show also features a blend of sketch comedy and music with performances by stand-up comedian Hayley Ellman and music by Gabbie Rotts.
“The show’s central theme will focus on the allure of escapism through a story where a woman enters an alternate universe and must decide whether to stay in this alternate timeline where politics, the world and her personality are vastly different or return home to a flawed but familiar world,” the release said.
With four different showings, “Critical Crop Top Enters the Multiverse” will be hosted at the historic Highland Inn and Ballroom Lounge on the following days:
- Friday, May 11 at 8 p.m.
- Sunday, May 13 at 7 p.m.
- Friday, May 18 at 8 p.m.
- Sunday, May 20 at 7 p.m.
The show is written, directed and performed by Nicole Kemper, Hillary R. Heath, Jasmine Waters, Patrick Morgan, Jon Goode, Andy Fleming, Cameryn Richardson and Liz Schad.
Tickets are on sale now at Critical Crop Top’s website for $10.
