Tell us about your show.

Die Hard: The Musical-ish is a pop culture parody of the famous 1988 action flick, just in time for its 30th Anniversary. While skewering the plot from the original film, the musical is packed with parodies of upbeat pop/rock songs from the eighties. It’s all brought to you by the same artists behind Hunger Games: The Musical Trilogy.

Describe your show in three words.

Testosterone-infused awesomeness.

Why should someone come see your show?

It’s just a fun time at the theatre. There’s great songs that’ll make you tap your feet to, or pump your fist in the air. A hilarious, yet respectful, skewering of one of the best action flicks ever made. Dynamic characters portrayed be some of the funniest actors around. And if you know a guy who is wary of musicals, this is the one to take him to.

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

Well, John McClane is a superhero in his own right. But if you’re looking for a ‘caped’ one, I’d go with Mr. Incredible. Like our show, he’s family friendly, a strong performer, appreciates nostalgia, and just wants to show his stuff.

If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?
