Before The Book of Mormon, before South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut, actually before even South Park, Trey Parker created the Broadway-spoofing Cannibal! The Musical while in college in 1992. What's it about? Well, it's a black comedy loosely based on the story of convicted cannibal Alfred Packer, who reveals all to news reporter Polly Pry while awaiting execution. Yes, even then, Parker liked pushing the limits of what's expected and acceptable in entertainment. Landless Theatre, known for its Fringe-like risque programming, including the musical farce Perez Hilton Saves The Universe and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, opens its season with another local production of the show after first staging it in 2005. Artistic director Andrew Lloyd Baughman directs a cast including Patrick M. Doneghy, Steve Custer and Stefanie Garcia. Opens tonight, Friday, Nov. 25, at 7:30 p.m. Playing weekends to Dec. 23. District of Columbia Arts Center (DCAC), 2438 18th St. NW. Tickets are $25. Call 202-431-4704 or visit dcartscenter.org.Click here to take our latest poll
