If you've been thinking that you just don't see enough musicals with singing dinosaurs these days you're in luck (and you're a little weird but I like you). Triassic Parq is a playful musical interpretation of the Spielberg movie it rhymes with, only this time, the story is told from the point of view of the captive dinosaurs. The award-winning musical was originally imagined by NYC-based theatre artists Marshall Pailet, Bryce Norbitz, and Steve Wargo and takes a deeper look at the lives of all the velociraptors and tyrannosaurus rex living in Jurassic Park.
If you're wondering if this is a costume affair, the production's director Alex Kirschner told me, "attendees are welcome to come to any show in anything they'd like, so long as they are clothed! Ideas for costumes include a laboratory scientist, Jurassic Park ranger, or dress up as your favorite character from the film (Jeff Goldblum, hello!)."
Triassic Parq is playing at the Eureka Theatre now through June 28. Tickets are $25-$36 or six lucky guests per show can pay a discounted rate (only $5!) to sit on stage. Just show up one hour before the start of the show to get in line for rush seating and be ready for some heavy petting.
