National Lampoon’s Debut of ‘Lemmings: 21st Century’ Postponed Until August 15 & 16, 2020
National Lampoon’s all-new comedy musical, Lemmings: 21st Century, which was slated to debut for this weekend, March 14 and 15, at Joe’s Pub in New York City, has been postponed due to the growing concern surrounding coronovirus. It was announced today by President, National Lampoon, Evan Shapiro.
“Unfortunately, a few members of our Lemmings team have come down with what we hope is an average winter cold. However, out of a preponderance of caution, and a deep love for our Artists and our New York City audiences, we will be postponing our premiere of ‘Lemmings: 21st Century’ until we all get though this current global health crisis,” adds Shapiro. “I’d like to thank our amazing cast, creators and our partners at Joe’s Pub for being so amazing.”
New dates for the performance have been set at Joe’s Pub for Saturday, August 15 & Sunday, August 16, 2020.
Ticketholders can reach out to Joe’s Pub box office at 212-967-7555 for a refund or transfer the tickets to the August performances.
A sequel to National Lampoon’s legendary off-Broadway musical sketch hit Lemmings, which helped launch the careers of John Belushi, Christopher Guest and Harold Ramis, National Lampoon’s LEMMINGS: 21ST CENTURY is a satire of modern Millennial corporate music festival culture.
LEMMINGS: 21ST CENTURY is written by Larson Grant Winner, Andrew Farmer, with a score written by downtown music-comedy guru Henry Koperski, and directed by red-hot theater artist Annie Tippe.
Consulting Producer Patrick Catullo (Oh, Hello On Broadway, David Byrne’s American Utopia) and Line Producers/General Managers Mike Lavoie and Carlee Briglia (Jacqueline Novak’s Get On Your Knees, Oh, Hello On (Off) Broadway).
Out of a preponderance of caution and a deep love for our artists & NYC audiences, we’re postponing our premiere of ‘Lemmings: 21st Century’ until we all get through this current health crisis.
This team & show are amazing.
We can’t wait for you to see them in August!
