Hot for 'Bot
Playwright Greg Hundemer says anyone who turns out for his musical comedy Proto-hobo (also his senior honors thesis) is in for hilarity. "The audience can expect laughs, tears and, in short, the greatest musical they've ever seen," he says. (Take that, Cats!)
The nefarious plot concerns an evil scientist named Shelley who builds a panhandling robot to collect change 24/7. In order to make his fund-raiser more sympathetic, he gives the titular 'bot a soul. Naturally, things get complicated. Proto-hobo falls in love with a tomboyish hobo-ess (are there any other kind?) and begins to consider world domination. Betcha Brecht never thought of that.
