April 2, 2012

1. There was a special matinee of Brunch Punkx at the Annoyance Sunday for April Fool's Day, which really just whizzed past in a boring manner, didn't it? The original musical will run through May 5. Here's the plot: When their brunch program is canceled, a group of renegade culinary students decide to take the industry by storm. When a death row inmate requests their brunch for his final meal, they realize that the only way to deliver is to defy the strict three meal a day-er prison warden, and break in."
