Green Bay, Wis.—Theatre on the Bay plans a comic homage to hunting with ESCANABA IN THE MOONLIGHT this November. ESCANABA IN DA MOONLIGHT spins a hilarious tale of humor, horror and heart as Reuben Soady goes to any and all lengths to correct his infamous reputation as the oldest member of the Soady family to never bag a buck.
ESCANABA IN DA MOONLIGHT was written by Jeff Daniels and originally produced by Purple Rose Theatre Company in Chelsea, Michigan, Daniel’s hometown, to rave reviews.
“Challenging what anyone might consider ‘legitimate’ theater, Daniels breaks new theatrical ground…”
“ESCANABA IN DA MOONLIGHT is a tall tale inspired by a larger than life corner of America…Daniels gives his audience plenty to laugh at plus a little something to think about.”
“ESCANABA is a Super Yooper Comedy.” —Ann Arbor News. “…a flawless night of entertainment…”
