This Passes For Theatre In Minnesota
Deer Camp, a musical comedy about hunting, debuted last Wednesday at the Lowry Theatre in St. Paul…wait, let me say that again, a musical comedy?? Oh those wacky Minnesotans. Now that I think about it, I can’t think of anything that brings to mind musical comedy more than 4 men in the woods, in a cabin, on a cold autumn weekend with their guns. Yeah, ok here’s the writeup:
But this year is different; after 15 years of coming home with nothing but a hangover, the guys are under a threat from their wives to “get a deer or else.”
That means no more hunting trips if they come back empty handed again.
Wow that sounds like a laugh a minute to me! Think of all the fart jokes, the fun pranks they do when one passes out from too much booze, the shootings in the ass, the cornhole on the lawn, the unruly matches of euchre, the games of hide the sausage, trying not to get stabbed by the antlers…and I can go on with this. It all sounds like they might’ve found the sequel to Brokeback Mountain, “Brokeback Mountain 2: Deer Camp“. This play is FULL of possibilities! How this hasn’t garnered a national run is beyond me.
Lord knows that Broadway has run out of ideas, maybe this is the kind of out of the box thinking they need to bring some life to the theatre district…or not at all.
This hunter however, is not amused
