The Brothers Zell

The Brothers Zell is a fully improvised tale of two brothers during the “Roaring 20’s.”   Francis and Mortimer Zell, two of the biggest cheeses you never heard of, are on top of the world! They got their fingers in so many pies there ain’t enough window sills on which to cool’em. But can the good times last forever? Ab-so-lute-ly, Doll; don’t be a bug-eyed Betty.

Tickets for this performance are still available!
