BUTT KAPINSKI, PRIVATE EYE
...a comedy, a mystery, an interactive noir fantasia
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Somewhere between Raymond Chandler and Bugs Bunny is Butt Kapinski, a private eye on a mission to investigate a mystery... and you’re all suspects.
Welcome to a world of darkness, smoke, betrayal, femme fatales, perversion, murdered bodies, and one clown in love with it all.
When the show doesn’t go as planned, when the mystery can’t get solved without everyone’s help, the audience and Butt take a ride together, delving into everyone’s dark sides to uncover the real film noir that is created anew at every performance.
