Story Synopsis:
Explores the relationships between the tenants at the Armadillo Acres Trailer Park in Florida, particularly between Pippi, “the stripper on the run,” the Dr. Phil loving, agoraphobic Jeannie, and Jeannie’s tollbooth collector husband, Norbert.

“Adultery, strippers, murderous ex-boyfriends, Costco and the Ice Capades. Undeniable fun.” —NY Post.

“A show that actually lives up to the hype of its title.” —Village Voice.

“A delicious new musical. The joint is jammed and jumping with raucous laughter. It’s like The Honeymooners meets The Best Little Whorehouse in Urinetown.” —NY Post. “

Entertaining and tuneful, TRAILER PARK shines like aluminum siding. “This wheel-spinning, mud-splattering good time of a show is the theatrical equivalent of a bag of Doritos. You can’t get enough. Who could expect a thrillingly trashy Greek chorus of trailer park matrons whose hysterical musical stylings all but redefine the girl-group-as-cultural-commentator craze? Or a number with enough show-stopping electricity to trump every musical that opened on Broadway last season?” —Talkin’ Broadway.

“A sparkling, sharp irreverence lights up this musical and makes it one of the most laugh-out-loud shows in town.” —
