Boston, MA (May 15, 2017) – The Boch Center and AEG announced today that the critically acclaimed “Mystery Science Theater 3000” TV show is heading to the stage for the first time and will play the Boch Center Shubert Theatre on Thursday, July 6, 2017 at 7:00PM during the “Watch Out for Snakes!” Tour. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 19, 2017 at 12:00PM.
Appearing with creator Joel Hodgson and new host Jonah Heston (Jonah Ray) live on stage will be robot companions Crow (Hampton Yount), Tom Servo and Gypsy, along with Synthia (Rebecca Hanson) and her Bonehead henchmen. Of course, it wouldn’t be “MST3K” without the ever-present surveillance of the Mads, Kinga Forrester (Felicia Day) and TV’s Son of TV’s Frank (Patton Oswalt), checking up on their unwilling test subjects via a video screen.
The show will include all the things expected from an “MST3K” experience: a cheesy B-movie, hilarious riffing, wisecracking robots, silly sketches, plus – for the first time – audience participation! Boston fans will get to experience the MST3K favorite “Eegah,” featuring all-new riffs and sketches.
Following its record-breaking #BringBackMST3K Kickstarter campaign, the new season of the show launched on April 14, 2017, exclusively on Netflix. The live shows are written by the cast and writers of the new Netflix Original Series, which has earned a critics’ rating of 100% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. The New York Times hails, “At last, a revival of something actually worth reviving… a different cast but the same outlook and style — and mercifully, the same reliable, giddy humor.” “MST3K is just as hilarious as ever in rebooted form, turning its bemused eye on old, schlocky fare for some good, old-fashioned riffing,” raves Vanity Fair. And Nerdist says “The references are updated, the sets are snazzier, but the heart and soul of MST3K certainly remains intact.”
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 19 at 12:00PM and are available at the Boch Center Box Office, bochcenter.org, or by calling (866) 348-9738.
