Mains: Les Mains du Destin

Hey, screw that Brit Jerry Springer musical that's finally coming to Broadway.

I want to see this!

Yes, that's a trailer for Manos: The Rock Opera of Fate and yes, it's a new theatrical extravaganza based on everybody's favorite Mystery Science Theater 3000 turkey. For those of you lucky enough to live in the vicinity of the Windy City, it will be playing Friday and Saturday nights, at 11 pm, September 28 through November 3, at the National Pastime Theater, 4139 N. Broadway in Chicago. Tickets are $15 dollars and can be purchased by calling 312-458-9083 or through the New Millennium Theatre Company website.

A trivia note: the title of the original movie is Manos: The Hands of Fate. For those of you who don't speak Spanish, the word "manos" means hands. Thus the actual title of the film is Hands: The Hands of Fate.

Thought you'd like to know.
