    The Catastrophic Theatre was featured in American Threatre. The article was posted yesterday and it features an interview with the director, our own political savant and Daryl Morey confidant, Batman Jones.

    Includes this following snippet...

    Read the full article here and do yourself a favor and check out a play at Catastrophic. I was able to catch Bluefinger a few seasons ago and it was delightful.

    Congrats BJ!

    No Clutchfans or Sura faints reference? Fail interview.
    I've only been to one of the shows but it was very good. Introduced myself to him (as he requested on the forum) and he was very cool.

    Awesome! Keep up the good work.

    We drove in from Austin to see Bluefinger a few years back and it was great!

    Why did you lose? Follows the story of a promising young basketball player Darnell Murray who is brutally injured in a brawl over a can of Crystal Pepsi and forced to give up his dream of becoming an NBA player. Filled with deep regret and overcome with grief and self-loathing, Darnell meets a man named Bob James, who convinces him to trade him his car for a magic CSV file. Darnell accepts the trade and when he opens the file in Excel, he is suddenly given the power to execute any trade with assurance he will always come out on top. With his newly found power, Darnell quickly rises up the ranks of NBA offices until he becomes the General Manager of the Houston Spaceships. Thinking he has finally made it in life, Darnell comes to realize that all the trades he has ever made have come to have a profound effect on his life, and will eventually lead to his most crushing decision ever.

    Why did you lose? explores deep human emotions like asset valuation, Poisson distribution, Team clustering coefficient, neural networks, and Battlestar Galatica.

    What a great article about your theatre, Batman! I will definitely make it down to Houston for Why Did You Lose? I've been wanting to see a production of yours for a very long time. Will you do us all a favor? Don't break your leg!
