Lady Dinos Need Love, Too

When Tim and Lex Murphy are stuck in a kitchen with two terrifying T. rexes in the cult classic Jurassic Park, there must have been a few people who sided with the dinosaurs. Those big, scaly faces were kind of cute! And maybe they weren't so evil — maybe they were just hungry. Besides, Tim and Lex were whiny, annoying, and probably delicious. So what if we heard the dinosaurs' side of the story? That's what audiences can expect in Triassic Parq, a musical that follows the lives of lady dinosaurs living in a theme park overtly reminiscent of a certain Crichton/Spielberg creation. Shit hits the fan when one of the T. rexes strangely morphs from female to male, forcing the entire pack to wrap their little reptile brains around the idea of religion, sexuality, and love. It's a little out there. But for some reason, nothing sounds cuter than adults dressed as dinosaurs singing show tunes and banging out sassy choreography.

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: May 29. Continues through June 28, 2014
