Boo Town presents Mijo, a modified benshi performance of Patrick Swayze’s bouncer movie Road House today with three narrators. In the 1989 film, Swayze arrives in Jasper, Missouri, and gets a job at a violent night spot. In his efforts to clean up the bar, he runs afoul of a corrupt local businessman, and a war of attrition escalates between the two men as the town burns down around them. Only the rugged Swayze, with his iron will — and fighting ability that allows him to rip out a man’s throat with his bare hands — stands between right and wrong. (We can’t wait to hear what the narrators say about that!)
8 and 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 10 and 11:55 p.m. March 16. Rudyard’s, 2010 Waugh. For information, visit www.bootown.org. Pay-what-you-will.
