The story has, at its center, a love triangle between an agoraphobe, a highway toll collector and an exotic dancer with an unhinged ex-boyfriend. A Greek-chorus-eque trio of trailer park women helps guide the narrative, playing any character or gender they choose while breaking the fourth wall at whim to air their own dirty laundry.
The result is a sense of informality and community – the lifeblood of neighborhoods everywhere. Almost two decades after its New York premiere, "The Great American Trailer Park Musical" continues to connect with audiences and sold-out crowds. Beyond the broad comedy and Jerry Springer-worthy confrontations, the show is about rising above our impulses, our mistakes and our surroundings to make a future we can believe in despite the past.
"...Cole Porter cleverness with a Hot Pockets sensibility." - PITTSBURGH MAGAZINE
"More fun than a chair-throwing episode of Jerry Springer set to music." - THE NEW YORKER
"The Trailer Park meets South Park in this big-hearted new musical comedy with a cheeky script by Betsy Kelso and an infectious score by David Nehls." - THE NEW YORK SUN
