Dueling Critics: Beastly Bombing

SHARE Dueling Critics: Beastly Bombing

Terrorists, warmongering politicians, and drug addicts aren't the kinds of characters you'd usually find in an operetta. But that's exactly what you get in Beastly Bombing at Chicago's Trap Door Theater.

Militia-type white supremacists run into Al Quada-esque terrorists as each group tries to blow up the Brooklyn bridge. The two sets of bombers are forced to join forces and flee the scene together, united by their hatred of Jews. And if you can believe it-song, and hilarity, ensues.

Here to tell us if Beastly Bombing leaves them rolling in the aisles or heading for the exits are Eight Forty-Eight's Dueling Critics Jonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman.
