We loved Birdbrain’s all Asian homosexual take on Oklahoma. Risky. “Okrahomo” was ahead of it’s time.
But what happens in our lovely bubble when a company comes along, does two shows and 1 YouTube video and literally no one has ever heard of them?
Usually, they die a horrible and quick death in the basement of the Athenaeum, but this one...this time it is different because a theatre company has come along and stolen our hearts and imaginations. We have never been as excited for a new theatre company to prove themselves as we are with...
THE BLACK SHIP CO. At least that’s what we think they are called.
Their website doesn’t really describe much of anything, but there are pictures of guys with cardboard swords and blanket capes and the font is pretty awesome.
After reading a third of their website, the back of one of their postcards, and watching the first 45 seconds of their YouTube video, we were convinced. The Black Ship Co. is about to go supernova all over Chicago’s sweet, sweet ass!
|Who are these people?|
We’ve been waiting for a theatre company to come along that seems like they are nice, and not just a bunch of dicks like The Dick Theater Company. Fuck those dudes.
And to prove to you how nice they are, we are gonna ask The Black Ship Co. to have a night where all Chicago Theatre people can come and see their play. We think that would be very fair of them.
Do you think they will even read this?
You know that they will. We are kingmakers and insane secessionists who believe that Obama is controlling the mole people who live in the subways.
So if you see the Black Ship Co. around town, please let them know that we are looking for them because we have never even met them or anything, but we are pretty sure that they are going to be the best theatre in town.
We love you Black Shape Inc.! We know that you are Chicago’s wake up call! Now, give us your women!

YOU THINK YOU ARE BETTER THAN US????
SHOW YOUR FACES, BLACK SHIP!!!! Or we will board you like Somalian pirates. And then leave you in shambles, scurrying to pick up your crayons and sniff markers.
Please just respond to us. We are sorry we said those things.
Oh, baby, you know how we get at the holidays...here’s a mink stole and an Escalade, my sweetness.
Just think about it ok?
A+ (if you respond in 24 hours)
