Why: Porn, or pr0n, is a ubiquitous part of our lives, but who would admit it? And what are the consequences? And frankly, what better way is there to answer these questions than through musical comedy?
Aspiring actress Jessica Harrison finds herself sucked up into a whirlwind of legal intrigue, media frenzy, and familial strife when an adult film she stars in goes viral. Meet the colorful cast of characters, including Eddie "Spaghetti" Buonocazzo, a pornographer on trial for exploitation, his business partner (and former star) Victoria St. John, and Jessie's brother, Connor and his roommate Todd who embark on a quest to redeem Jessie. The third musical from Alex Higgin-Houser, David Kornfeld, Brendan Siegfried and Laura Stratford to premier in Chicago, this show will leave you laughing, whistling, and wondering what you would do if the whole world knew what you looked like naked.
