From the creators of KING (nominated for the Harry Rintoul Award for Best New Manitoban Play 2017) comes a story about the only story that really matters. Yours.
Featuring live original music, bandmates and barge masters of the afterlife sing and dance their way through the life of Johnny Boy. What begins as a eulogy for a modest man becomes a flaming Viking funeral as the storytellers get high off their own hyperbole.
Created and performed by Duncan Cox, Tanner Manson and Ben Townsley.

The Ballad of Johnny Boy

Walk&Talk Theatre Company—MTC Up the Alley

If you can’t stand indie music, while I would say there’s more to it than that, this one probably isn’t for you. The songs were excellent, though I found some of the segues to be a touch stilted. All three performers were very funny, their line delivery was nearly perfect, and when they had to bring it down to a more serious level they were more than capable. They seemed to have a theme going of which character liked which story more, and while it wasn’t referenced much, I feel they could have played more into it. All in all though, more than worth your 10$.
