Satire is a valuable antidote for a reality that increasingly feels stranger than fiction. As we escape into the comedy, we’re forced to look inward, to discern the threads of reality and ask “Why?”; “How did we get here?”
Andrew Munz’s I Can Ski Forever musicals compel us to such introspection. The playwright, author and actor uses the satirical tools he has amassed as an improv performer and comedian to extract snippets of reality from Jackson’s subcultures and idiosyncrasies. And as Jackson evolves so too has each iteration of I Can Ski Forever.
The fourth installment premieres Thursday, May 2 at Pink Garter Theatre. Ahead of the opening curtain, actress Kari Hall and Andrew Munz dig into the musicals’ evolution. They also recited a few lines for us.
