As more of the “retro” things of the 90s continue to become popular–no matter how obscure (see: pogs)–House of Maybe’s ability to make use of them will only become more over the top. Case in point: Ketamine!: The Musical.
But what House of Maybe perhaps didn’t account for was just how retro the drug is in that no one actually wants to partake of it in this town unless they’re 40 or gay (though, yes this demographic does comprise a considerable portion of the population).
Thus, the majority of audience members in attendance at the final “screening” of Ketamine!: The Musical were, much to the performers’ dismay, stone-cold sober (alcohol doesn’t count). “I kind of thought we could rely on the use of tie-dye shirts as the primary means of a ‘bell and whistle,’ but everyone was just way too present. At least we got a few laughs during the ‘k-hole’ intermission though,” stated aerialist Marta Morando, a 23-year-old from Brazil, a country where, incidentally, Ketamine!: The Musical will be performed next.
