The Firesign Theatre was and remains anarchic melodrama written and wonderfully
performed by one of

the greatest gangs of four ever; Philip Proctor, David Ossman, Philip Austin
and Peter Bergman. The

four Firesign records made between 1968 and 1971 (Don’t Crush That Dwarf, How
Can You Be in Two

Places at Once…, I Think We’re All Bozos on this Bus and Waiting for the
Electrician), conceived as

radio theater for the psychedelic era, constitute a dazzling comic epic whose
plots and sub-plots

are still scrutinized, memorized and revered by legions across this great
country “about which

we’re singing about.” From the mind of Hal Willner, who created the now
legendary Harry Smith

Project and Halloween evenings in Royce Hall, comes Let’s Eat..., sequences
from Firesign’s famed

recordings performed by a kaleidoscopic cast of actors, singers, writers –
zealots all –

accompanied by onstage sound effects and musical flourishes. Among the
evening’s guests: Ralph

Spoilsport, George Leroy Tirebiter, Nick Danger, Rocky Rococo, Nancy, Pico &
Alvarado and a Bozo

named Barney.!

Lineup subject to change

Produced by Hal Willner and Janine Nichols
