After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors keep the spark of human spirit alive by telling stories around a campfire. As the years wear on, these stories expand into the realm of legend and myth. At turns sidesplitting and bone-chilling, Mr. Burns also features an unusual approach for the Fools: each act will be staged in a different theater space in the Broadwater complex, transporting the audience as we search for the light. Performing in the Broadwater Black Box, Second Stage and Mainstage.

"Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play is a compelling exploration of storytelling as an essential mode of human survival."

"The play is a remarkable two-and-a-half-hour journey that carries its audience across three theaters, 75 years and almost as many performance styles."

"The play is wildly complex, wonderfully imaginative as well as touching, unpredictable, very oddly reverential, and perhaps a touch irritating in a good way, the kind that challenges an audience."

"Offering terrific value for a $15 ticket price, director Jaime Robledo and his stellar ensemble cast and technical crew make spectacular use of Sacred Fools' entire Broadwater multi-stage theater complex (formerly the Elephant Stages)...The whole elaborate environmental experience is weird, creepy and, as its title character would proclaim it, “Excellent!”"

"Hands down the best, 2nd-act dance choreography I've seen, to date, in L.A. Intimate Theater!... Every actor on stage knocked it out of the park! -Very Highly Recommend"

"Overused as the term one-of-a-kind may be, I guarantee you've never seen anything quite like (or perhaps even remotely resembling) Mr. Burns. This “post-electric play” is sure to stick with you post-performance and beyond."

"Jaime Robledo proves yet again that he's one of the best directors in town, alive to every detail of the challenging material. Not only does he create three totally different environments that each feel real (kudos to Joel Daavid for his amazing trio of sets, the last of which is quite impressive), but he even makes the hallways in between the stages a part of the show. He nails the vibe of a spooky campfire, a backstage drama, and choreographed musical numbers, all the while keeping the show strong on a technical level — it's an outstanding achievement. - RECOMMENDED"
