Real Life Action - Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play

"The creative team mustered by Little Mountain Lion Productions holds its audience in good hands, keeping them safe while keeping them unsettled. After all, this is the apocalypse. Nothing is sure. Except, in Mr Burns, A Post-Electric Play, a good time and a lot to consider."

Little Mountain Lion's Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play does the apocalypse Simpsons-style - John Lucas

"We might have Britney Spears, Eminem, and Beyoncé to thank for the funniest moment in Little Mountain Lion’s production of Mr. Burns. That comes in the second act, when a ragtag theatre group made up of apocalypse survivors rehearses the 'chart hits' section of their show. In composer and musical director Katerina Gimon’s hands, this becomes a hilarious medley of half-remembered pop songs, from 'Toxic' to 'Lose Yourself' to 'Single Ladies'."
