From every Airport movie ever to epic adventures like The Poseidon Adventure, Swarmand Earthquake, you'll recognize all the stock characters and set pieces, accompanied by hits like "Muskrat Love," "I Am Woman," "Hooked on a Feeling," "Knock on Wood," and of course, "I Will Survive."

God Help Us! - Starring Ed Asner - 3 performances only

GOD HELP US! is a play ripped from today’s headlines, an evening’s entertainment that is at once hilarious, unifying and thought provoking.  Two pundits, Larry (a liberal lad) and Randi (a conservative gal), find themselves confronted by GOD (the legendary Ed Asner), a wise, sarcastic, cantankerous and wildly funny character who is offended by what America’s political leaders have done to America. He has brought Randi and Larry to Purgatory for a lively debate about the issues our time. And whomever he finds more persuasive will get God’s “mighty thumb on the scale” in one or the other’s favor.  We learn that Randi and Larry were a couple back in their college days, but politics tore them apart – in large measure because they couldn’t learn how to disagree without being disagreeable.
