The Sound of Torgo

This is one of those stories that… Well, what can I say? Someone’s made a musical out of Manos: The Hands of Fate. Manos: Rock Opera of Fate has been playing in Chicago since September 28th, and it will continue to play until November 3rd. I don’t really know the story behind the play, but I think it’s a given that some of the folks behind it are MSTies. With song titles like “(Why Can’t They See The) Torgo (Inside of Me)” and “(I’ll Explain) What’s Going On (What The F***ing F***?)” it’s got to be an entertaining watch.

Has anyone seen this, or is planning to? I’d love to read some reviews. The only info we have to go on is the official site and a skimpy Wikipedia article. Beyond that, there is an amusing extended trailer, which I’ve included behind the cut. I know that I, personally, will not be satisfied until Torgo wins a Tony.

  1. i’ve seen it and it was hilarious. mocking the bad acting, a drunk narrator who didn’t know what he signed on for, & they do a different movie’s ending every night (I was there on “Se7en” night).

  2. Wow, that sounds fantastic. Hopefully they’ll take it on the road, or something.
