Listen: something magical is going to happen tomorrow night at Baxter Avenue Theater. I have written about it twice before. After the second time, I witnessed it for myself, and I have returned, brothers and sisters, to inform you of it a third time, for it has returned: a tale of love and loss, friendship and betrayal, tickling and spoons and breast cancer apparent. It takes place in a world called San Francisco, as you will be constantly reminded. Footballs are tossed and gangsters demand their drug money on rooftops for no apparent reason. Weird foreplay leads to even weirder sex – but I shouldn't warn you too much of that, for it is something that one must experience for oneself. It is a spectacle, a sight to behold.
It is The Room.
Tommy Wiseau wrote, directed, and starred in this tale of broken trust. He stars as Johnny, a banker who is happily in love with his girl, Lisa. Lisa, however, has a thing for Johnny's friend Mark (they are Best Friends, as you will be reminded many times) and Johnny begins a spiral into despair as his friends disappoint and betray him one by one and his world falls apart.
Baxter Avenue Theater presents a midnight screening of The Room tomorrow, Saturday. Baxter Avenue Theater is located at 1250 Bardstown Road. Further theater information and advance ticket sales can be found at the Baxter Avenue Theater website.
One more word of advice: bring along a box of plastic spoons. Don't worry about why – you'll find out soon enough. And save some for the finale.
