It's back. The staged parody of the 1989 cult classic film about a mysterious bar bouncer with a past who lives by his own rules, a small town bullied by wealthy a**hole, true love, and karate.
This show debuted in 2010 and continues to be a Bad Reputation Productions favorite. Seasoned with age and packed with a cast of Portland's funniest, this show will punch you right in the face and leave you begging for more.
THIS SHOW WILL SELL OUT.
Oh, and be nice. Until it's time to not be nice.
Adapted to the stage by Shelley McLendon and Courtenay Hameister
