Cannibal! The Musical
With Jason McHugh in person!
Thu April 19
2012, 7:00 only

Actor/producer Jason McHugh will appear in person with his new book, SHPADOINKEL: THE MAKING OF CANNIBAL: THE MUSICAL. Double feature with The Legend of Alfred Packer.

Originally titled ALFERD PACKER: THE MUSICAL!, Trey Parker’s film debut, shot in Colorado while he was still a film student at CU Boulder, was later picked up by Troma and retitled CANNIBAL: THE MUSICAL. Actor and producer Jason McHugh played an instrumental role in getting CANNIBAL: THE MUSICAL onto MTV, where it was noticed by a hotshot studio executive who later helped launch SOUTH PARK. Jason also pioneered the idea of the “barnacle-fest” when he crashed Sundance with CANNIBAL: THE MUSICAL, thus planting the seed that gave way to Slamdance the next year. Since that time, CANNIBAL: THE MUSICAL has taken on a life of its own as a live show that is performed across the nation, including recent sold-out performances in Denver. We bring back Jason McHugh for a reprise of the film and a Q&A, with plenty of added surprises.
