Join Joel Hodgson, creator/host of the acclaimed “Mystery Science Theater 3000” TV show, and host Jonah Heston (Jonah Ray) as they bring an all-new live touring production of MST3K to a city near you. Appearing with Joel and Jonah live on stage will be robot companions Crow, 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 remote video. The tour consists of two separate, completely unique shows, each with separate admissions. Fans wanting the complete tour experience should purchase two tickets, one for each show. Each event will include all the things expected from an MST3K experience: a cheesy B movie, hilarious riffing, wisecracking robots, silly sketches plus audience participation!
