About The Usual Rejects
A staged parody of all your favorite EPIC blockbuster movies. Six comedic actors. Every role. Bad accents, costumes, talking dinosaurs, audience participation, trivia, and only the most quotable films. Come join the fun and see your favorite films portrayed like never before! You may even get to be part of the show! The Usual Rejects was created as a fundraiser to support programming and productions at The Chain Theatre, a 501c3 not for profit company. All ticket sales and proceeds go to continuing this line of nonsense and supporting a great independent theatre company located in NYC. This is a staged reading presented as a drinking game. Different references in the movie or actions of characters will result in the actors yelling: “DRINK!” We encourage all audience members to drink responsibly.
