RED OCTOPUS THEATER: ‘#OCTOPILITTLEROCK’
8 p.m. The Public Theatre. $8-$10.
If you’re looking at that title and thinking to yourself (or perhaps to someone else, if you’ve got ESP), “Now, just what in the Sam Hill are those Red Octopi up to this go around?” well pardner, I’ll tell you what: They’re lampooning protesters and political dissidents, shut-ins, organic food snobs, moshing, “Downton Abbey” and the Good Lord only knows what else.
How about some of these sketch titles: “It’s the ’90s — It’s Not All About Flannel,” “Def Jill’s Comedy Showcase,” “Hillcrest Now Sells Coyote Meat” — and those were just the ones we could print! Just kidding, but seriously, as is usually the case with Red Octopus productions, you should leave your kiddos at home, as this shiz is for grownups only now.
Take note: The first 10 people who show up each night at 7:30 p.m. who are so inclined can enter for half price, so long as they agree to protest the show (signs will be provided).
