While we don't find bed bug infestations funny necessarily, we thought that learning about a Broadway musical about bedbugs could add a lot of levity to your workday that may include dealing with the pests in the real world, in real time. But without an inspirational musical score.
Bedbugs - It's a Musical has attracted rave reviews in New York. The musical about mutant bedbugs that terrorize New York City has got it all: revenge, family, pesticides and, of course, a love story. The production was first released in 2008 and has taken six years to evolve into the hit it's become.
The New York Times dubbed it a Critics' Pick, adding: “A theatrical blast of fresh air, Bedbugs!!! is an audacious rock-’n’-roll concoction that never stops surprising. The sci-fi slapstick tradition of Little Shop of Horrors and The Rocky Horror Show is alive and well and, now, six-legged.” Full review here. Other reviews have called the production "zany, a must-see, and musical comedy genius."
We are pretty sure the story line doesn't go as far as shopping for replacement furniture but never fear New York City - the Central City Bed is here!
