The Master Will Sing You Now: "Manos" Musical Hits Chicago Stage
Fangoria.com is reporting on one of the stranger screen-to-stage adaptations in recent memory: Manos: The Rock Opera of Fate. Based on the 1966 film Manos: The Hands of Fate, which may be the worst ever made by anyone ever, the new musical debuts September 28th at the National Pastime Theater in Chicago. The production, staged by the New Millenium Theatre Company, follows the basic plot of the film (about a stranded family, a satyr named Torgo, a diabolical Master, and the Master's harem), but adds songs like "(I Said) Manos (Hey Hey Manos)" and "(Why Can't They See the) Torgo (Inside of Me)".
To add to what already promises to be surreal theater experience, each performance will feature a different ending. You can visit the official site for more information.
