Tell us about Little Mac, Little Mac, You’re the Very Man: It's a wonderful romp of a tragicomedy that is loosely based off of ThreePenny Opera. Little Mac, our doe-eyed womanizing protagonist, goes on an adventure through Americana's historical and present cultural, political, and sometimes situational shortcomings and strengths- running into iconic (and some not-so-iconic) characters along the way.

Describe Little Mac, Little Mac, You’re the Very Man in 3 words: Sharp, Zany, Wild.

Which company member is most likely to be a Wild West Outlaw?: Lance Lemon's got that sort of trouble-making gleam in his eye.

Most likely to achieve the American Dream and/or be rolling in the dough?: James Presson and Rachel B. Joyce are going to combine forces to infiltrate some major corporation and take over the world.

Most likely to become a future famous pop culture icon?: Sarah Daniels. Easy one.

Most likely to multiple personality disorder (as a result of this show)?: Anthony Merchant. I think we may have already lost him.

Who’s the fastest gun slinger?: Tom Sanchez can twirl a plastic handgun faster and sharper than anything I've ever seen.

Who’s the best singer?: I hate to use him again, but Tom Sanchez has the voice of an angel. That's why they have him singing so much in the play.

Who’s the most offensive?:
Matthew's portrayal of the Doctor is a tough pill to swallow- But it hurts so good. Maybe my favorite character.

If you could grab a beer with one pop culture icon from Little Mac, Little Mac, You’re the Very Man, who would it be?:
Gatsby, (Although it'd be a fancy cocktail instead of a beer.)

What pop culture icon do you think should’ve made an appearance in Little Mac, Little Mac, You’re the Very Man?:
YONCE. YONCE. (Are you happy to be in Paris?)

Why should we come see Little Mac, Little Mac, You’re the Very Man?: Because you deserve it. Treat yo'self. YOLO.
