A Family-Friendly Play Comes to Pueblo

Max has an ongoing battle with NBC executives, who fear his humor is too sophisticated for America.

HINT: the characters in the play based on real writers, including Mel Brooks, Tony Webster, an Sid Ceasar.

The play will be performed March 13th &14th at 7:30 pm, and also March 15th at 2 pm.
