Chris! A One-Man Show
By Sam French & Kyle Wilson
Songs by Kyle Wilson & Kyle Selig
Advertised originally as the one-man show of a classmate (Chris) at Carnegie Mellon University, the show surprised everyone when Chris died in the first three minutes and his closest friends got up from the audience and reenacted a fictionalized version of his life. This became the musical odyssey of CHRIS, a young man raised by lesbian giraffes in Africa whose dream of becoming a star takes him from a sweatshop in China where he overthrows the evil matron, to a Texas beach where he smokes weed with George W. Bush, to the Great White Way itself.
