Theater One
Theater Wit

A post-apocalyptic tale of survival... passion... and the enduring power of Bart Simpson.

After life as we know it has ended, small bands of survivors band together to keep the pilot light of civilization burning. Their path to redemption is as unexpected as it is inevitable in the most original, vibrant and stunning piece of theater you'll see this year.

"THREE AND 1/2 STARS. A very distinct kind of thrill, the one that kicks in when you have absolutely no idea where a play is going, except that it is not likely to be any place you recall being before in a theater. Wherever you land on the "Simpsons" obsession scale, you should know that "Mr. Burns" is very funny. And that's most of what you need to know." Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
