World Premiere Musical Comedy Opens in Los Angeles
The World Premiere of the musical comedy, DON’T HUG ME, WE’RE FAMILY, opens Feb. 16th at
T. U. Studios in North Hollywood and runs through Mar. 25th.
Don’t Hug Me, We’re Family is by the authors of the popular Don’t Hug Me musical comedy series that have had over 200 productions around the U.S. and Canada.
Synopsis: Two fish-out-of-water Brooklyn Italians visit a north woods Minnesota town and change the lives of the locals.
Set in a little north woods Minnesota town, the host of a radio show devoted entirely to ice fishing loses his only advertiser while his wife, a popular host of a book show, has a lot of advertisers, putting the competitive couple at odds. Their marital problems are compounded when two, fish-out-of-water, Brooklyn Italians come to the rural Minnesota town, buy the radio station, and turn everything upside down.
Featuring 14 original songs and 12 north woods radio jingles.
It's "Fargo" meets "My Cousin Vinny"
(without the blood or the trial lawyers)
