Stranger Sings! The Parody Musical
Take a trip back to Hawkins, Indiana: 1983 —when times were simpler, hair was bigger, and unsupervised children were getting snatched by inter-dimensional creatures.
Stranger Sings! is a parody musical that lovingly riffs on the first two seasons of that one 80’s-themed Netflix show and all its campy nostalgic glory. Join Mike, Eleven, Lucas, Dustin, and the whole Hawkins gang for a night of adventure, thrills, indulgent pop culture references, pubescent angst, heavy synth, poor parenting, convoluted love triangles, cheap effects, singing monsters, and maybe, just maybe, justice for everyone’s favorite frumpy ginger, Barb Holland. Featuring an exciting cast of NYC Theatre and Feinstein’s/54 Below favorites, prepare to go Upside Down with Stranger Sings! The Parody Musical!
