I'm really looking forward to seeing "Zippy the Pinhead: The Musical" which opened this week at Theatre Project. Yes, I know Zippy is bizarre and honestly I never understood the humor as a kid. The creator, Bill Griffith is fully aware that people have this reaction, and even posted a How to read Zippy section on his website. All the more reason to take the whole family I say. I want them be confused, befuddled, amused, concerned, baffled, perplexed and maybe, just maybe, entertained. So let the madness begin.

Here are the details:

The beloved, if slightly skewed comic strip by Bill Griffith, gets the musical treatment when composer Lorraine Whittlesey follows Zippy as he visits Baltimore and travels to his high school reunion. Fun abounds with songs like “Pinhead Love,” “The Condiments” and “Type ‘Z’ Personality.” A world premier workshop production, co-produced by Theatre Project and Private Sector Productions.
