Posted on 07/08/2017 7:49:31 AM PDT by blueyon
Normally, when we get a press release from a local theater company about its latest work, the press release includes, you know, the name of the play. But Philly theater company Lightning Rod Special bucked that trend this week went they sent us a notice announcing its musical comedy about abortion, which debuts in August at the Painted Bride.
We were going with Fetus Chorus, explains co-creator Alice Yorke, pictured below. But there were a lot of mixed feelings about it. The best comment we got was, I understand you want to provoke your audience, but do you want to do that in the theater or before they even get there?

Let them stand or fall by whether people will pay money to see their plays, concerts or house their artwork. I'm tired of being ripped off to fund people who attack my values. The funding also encourages poor art since grants are given for social agenda not talent, or technical skills.
Would bring a new meaning to starving artists.
"There's nothing funny, down that road.
Dead puppies... not funny
Abortion... not funny
There's nothing funny down that road!"
They should have Kathy Griffin play the part of the Abortion Doctor who pulls the live baby out of the mother with a pair of tongs and then cuts the baby’s head off with a machete.
How sick and perverted one would have to be to find any humor in abortion.
Every abortion is first degree premeditated murder.
Abortion is the offering of a little human baby boy or girl, trapped in the womb, with nowhere to run, nowhere too hide and no one to protect little him or her from a tortuous death sacrifice to the god of abortion, satan.
May our God do to them what they find so humorous about abortion.
After the success of a musical about a slut who is so immoral she doesn’t know who is the father of her child, is this that surprising?
When shame disappeared, society began its irrecoverable descent into hell.
“There’s nothing funny down that road!”
Nor do they have any right or intelligence to provoke an audience with the memory of dead children.
When Christ returns, there is going to be one serious global crapping of pants.
This is horrific.
Kathy Griffin is sort of persona non grata almost everywhere she goes. This might be a path back to her former great fame. < /sarcasm >
Then again, sometimes there is just no path back. Even to obscurity. Notoriety shall dog her footsteps all her life.
Do the moviemakers here have the song “Highway To Hell” in their soundtrack?
This world has gone completely insane.
Anybody that would go to see this disgusting farce has no moral sense at all
I happened to be switching channels yesterday and came across the show America Got Talent (NBC). There a man did mocked Trump. I thought his voice was bad and he lacked talent. But 3 out of the 4 judges and one woman judge (blonde iirc) made an anti-Trump comment in.
Now even America Got Talent has decided to go political and promote an agenda.
Hey, Emma Watson says abortion is just great so guess it is also funny.
Painted Bride *PING*
