Do you know who wrote “Blue Suede Shoes”? I’ll give you a hint: it wasn’t Elvis Presley. No, that honor belongs to Carl Perkins. (known to all as Mr. Phillips), the founder and owner of Sun Records out of Memphis, TN., famously promised a Cadillac to the first musician on his label to score a […]
The results of the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case were fresh as the crew of The Deadly Seven took the stage. Fresh enough to make its way into The Deadly Seven, a show about prejudice and marginalization, both in the black and the LGBT community.
In Costa Rica, there exists a wasp that paralyzes spiders. It then lays an egg on the spider’s abdomen. When the egg hatches, the emerging larva lives off the spider’s blood then essentially takes over the its mind. The spider builds a web unlike any it’s ever built before, which will become the home for […]
Joshua Morgan is the Artistic Director of No Rules Theatre Company. Fittingly, he’s the host of The No Rules Show, a variety show in the mind of The Late Show, in which Morgan plays piano, drinks, offers monologues, drinks, interviews guests and, umm, drinks.

The first act follows Peter Peters (totally embodied by Sean Coe), a TV pundit who puts his foot in his mouth when he pretends to be an expert on Khazaria, even though he can’t […]
Ever try to describe a dream to someone? Maybe you just had the most fascinating, exhilarating, deliriously fun dream that took you places you never knew existed (because they don’t), and you so badly want to share that experience with someone else. That someone else will never understand, will they?
“I’m Mike, and I like my shit.” These are the first words out of the mouth of Steve Isaac, who portrays Apple visionary Steve Jobs and Apple consumer Mike (Daisey, presumably) in The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs: The Musical. That “shit” refers to his electronics. The line does a good job of […]
Robert Johnson was arguably the greatest blues guitarist to ever roam the South or anywhere on this good earth. In fact, most folks don’t argue that he’s the best.
