Hell in a Handbag Production is proud to unleash the fury that is TROGG! A Musical.  Loosely based on the final film of legendary actress Joan Crawford, TROG, Hell in a Handbag's Trogg! A Musical adds teenagers, rock and roll, and the beach to the mix with Handbag's extra special touch that has made them Chicago's leading purveyors of camp and parody theater.

It's 1967, and Sunset Cove, a sleepy little coastal town in Southern California is rocked to its core when a big, furry monster is discovered in a nearby cave. It's up to the nation's top 'lady anthropologist', Dr. Joan Cannon (David Cerda), to uncover the truth about this mysterious creature. With the help of her trusted maid/paleontologist, Carol Ann (Ed Jones), Dr. Cannon sets out to prove that the creature is an actual prehistoric caveman- a Troglodyte. Standing in their way is Joans Huntington, Joan's former flame, now a renowned religious author and Mayor of of Sunset Cove. Complicating matters further is the budding romance between Joan's headstrong rock and roll loving daughter, Barbara and Jonas's equally strong-willed son, Rex.

TROGG! A Musical is written by Hell in a Handbag Artistic Director, David Cerda (POSEIDON! An Upside Down Musical, Rudolph the Red Hosed-Reindeer) and is his first new musical since Caged Dames produced in 2007. Cheryl Snodgrass (POSEIDON! An Upside Down Musical, Lady X) and Taylor E. Ross (SCARRIE! The Musical) collaborated with Cerda on the book and music, respectively and Scott Fergusion is directing the project.

"Hell in a Handbag is thrilled to returning to The Chopin Theatre, where  we had a 4 month run with POSEIDON! An Upside Down Musical (Jeff Recommended) says David Cerda, Handbag Artistic Director. "Owners Zygmunt Dyrkacz and Lela Headd are very supportive and the space is amazing".

See what happens when science clashes with religion, a caveman meets rock and roll and a town learns the true definition of being human in TROGG! A Musical, Hell in a Handbag's first new musical in 6 years!
