Once again extended, by popular demand, Stranger Sings! The Parody Musical will now run through April 30 at Playhouse 46 at St. Luke’s (308 W. 46th Street).
Stranger Sings! The Parody Musical is the hit Off-Broadway musical that brings everyone’s favorite streaming series to hilariously-twisted life on stage. With book, music and lyrics by Jonathan Hogue, Stranger Sings! The Parody Musical is a wild and irreverent send-up of the hit Netflix series Stranger Things and all its campy ’80s glory.
Take a trip back to Hawkins, Indiana, 1983: when times were simpler, hair was bigger, and unsupervised children were getting snatched by inter-dimensional creatures. Join Mike, Eleven, Lucas, Dustin, and the whole Hawkins gang for a night of adventure, thrills, pubescent angst, heavy synth, poor parenting, convoluted love triangles, cheap effects, dancing monsters, and maybe, just maybe… justice for everyone’s favorite missing ginger, Barb Holland.
“Stranger things are indeed happening at Playhouse 46,” said Hogue. “After the overwhelming response from fans, we extended our initial 16-week engagement through the winter. But the fans just keep coming and coming back for more, so we are delighted to keep the portal open through April 30 to laugh and party along with our favorite Hawkins crew. Justice For Barb will carry on into the springtime.”
