They Call Me Mister Fry - Theatre Asylum's Best of the Fringe
EXTENDED AS PART OF
THEATRE ASYLUM'S BEST OF THE HOLLYWOOD FRINGE
From the Cornfields of Indiana to the Streets of South Central Los Angeles : This Play Tells the Funny Yet Poignant True Story of a First-Year, 5th Grade Instructor where No "Teacha" is Left Behind.
Theatre Asylum is proud to present THEY CALL ME MISTER FRY, the critically-acclaimed one-man show written by and starring Jack Fry and directed by Jeff Michalski which has run for more than 2 years in Los Angeles and performed to critical acclaim, standing ovations and sold out houses across the country including a 3 month extended off-Broadway run at the Comic Strip Live Theater, 2 command performances for the Dept. of Ed. in Washington DC, and endorsed by Stephen Colbert on the The Colbert Report.
It's WELCOME BACK KOTTER meets COPS, NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND versus KING ARTHUR. Join this "white bread product" from Indiana battling the students, the establishment, and himself in a South Central classroom as he struggles to evolve into an effective teacher. He comes to teach, but ends up learning. Laughter, tears and extra credit provided. A true story.
