PharmaBro: An American Douchical

PharmaBro: An American Douchical! is a story about corporate greed, the American Dream gone wrong, and what happens when you try to f*** with a certain hip-hop group and their pal Bill Murray.

When evil “pharma bro” Martin Shkreli raised the price of Daraprim 5000%, he became one of America’s real-life villains. Then, he did the unthinkable: purchased, hoarded, and threatened to destroy a one-of-a-kind hip-hop album that the world had been anticipating for years. Watch Martin Shkreli get what’s coming to him in “the musical heist you never knew you wanted but would DEFINITELY go see” (Yahoo Music).

Full of hoverboards, hauntings, and fake news, this “wacky and often wonderful new musical” (New York Theatre Review) has all the right ingredients for a ridiculous night of musical comedy.
