Romulus Kilgore's Mobile Happiness Bazaar

About the Production

Are you unhappy? Of course you are. Just look at yourself. But Romulus Kilgore has what you need to feel better, and he’s selling it at competitive prices. An interactive, snake-oil medicine show for the troubled soul, Romulus Kilgore’s Happiness Bazaar is an impishly comic exploration of how we buy peace of mind.

Featuring Carlos "Levitating Man" Barajas, Brian "Break Dancer" Bose, Kourtni "Golden" Gouche, and Dennis "Bucket Man" Procopio

Patron Note
