Sharks on a Train

Attention New Yawkaz! If you find yourself in the L.I.C. this pre-holiday weekend looking for some quality entertainment, I humbly suggest you make your way to the Secret Theatre for a double-feature of epic proportion.
In "grindhouse" tradition, GRINDHOUSE MUSICAL features two shows back-to-back: the first, Local, takes place on a downtown 6 train and chronicles a morning commute that will change its passengers' lives forever. It will be followed by a highly anticipated revival of the smash hit JAWS: The Musical, which premiered in a sold-out run at the Creek and Cave in June 2010 (clips from that run are available here: For the first time ever, JAWS will be performed with a live full band. A trailer for GRINDHOUSE is also available on Kickstarter here:
Show times are tonight, July 1, and tomorrow, July 2, at 8:00 PM, and the ticket price is a scant $15. In addition to boasting two hours of songs about trains and sharks, Grindhouse Musical also features your friend and mine (Uncle Monsterface's) Mr. Marty Allen as Quint the shark hunter.

Alls I'm saying is that it's a classy affair. And you oughta go.
