Beardo. Book and lyrics by Jason Craig, music by Dave Malloy. Dir. Patrick Dooley.

I went to see this with a large group of people celebrating our friend M's birthday (side note: the Bay area is way too small), and in short, it was about as awesome as you could hope a rock musical about Rasputin would be.

I see visions and shit. It's part of my thing. )

I am failing to convey how awesome this show was in a variety of ways, but it really was awesome: hilarious, absurd, pointed, and really well-acted. The music was great, and all the actors also double as musicians on various instruments, and it was pretty awesome. (The Shotgun Players: really great.) The strangeness of Rasputin's life and career are only amplified by the times in which he lived, and vice versa, and I think the show gets that.
