A New Musical About the NRA
Ron Barkley is the head lobbyist for the NRA, and his life is real tough -- his daughter is a liberal socialist with a penchant for protests, and for some reason, the entire country is up in arms about gun control. But when Ron prays to God for divine intervention, he receives a magical gun that turns people - into guns. Because after all, if you've got problems, the solution is always More Guns!
With songs like "Good Guy With A Gun", "Everybody Do The Lobby!" and "Liberal Love", MORE GUNS! is a satire of the NRA, the "woke" left, and all those boring moderates in between. This is a show for the whole family, and by whole family we mean adults only!

The five members of A Muse Zoo met in a physical theatre master class in the mountains of Ashland, OR where they honed their craft. In their first meeting, they decided that no one wants to see a clown show. In that same meeting, they all agreed to put on a clown show.
The result was a stylistic explosion of old and new. An original comedy emerged paying homage to old, classic forms of physical comedy melded with new, modern sensibilities. A Muse Zoo’s show The Truth* is an over-the-top comedy about political power and the winners of war. Hilarity and heartbreak ensue when four dictators fight to conquer new land. The Truth* debuted in Ashland, OR in October 2017, and after rave reviews, AMZ decided to take the show on the road. With performances booked at the Capital Fringe Festival in Washington, DC, Toronto Fringe Festival and Indianapolis Fringe, they will also be performing in Portland, Los Angeles, Austin, Nashville, New York, and Chicago on their three-month tour. They are incredible proud to present their show and hope to bring laughter and joy, provoke thought and make physical comedy relevant again.
