Music and lyrics by Barry Brinegar

Presented by The Cradle Theatre Company
Directed by Rebecca Etzine

A punk-rock retelling of the Medusa myth about the all-girl all-gorgon band HISSIFIT. The year is MCMLXXVI, and a brood of she-snakes are about to take Olympus by storm with an irreverent new sound and a stage presence both repulsive and seductive. When superfan Poseidon attacks backstage, Athena tries to protect Medusa by bestowing the power to turn anyone she looks at into a mindless zombie fan. Much more Iggys The Idiot than American Idiot, HISSIFIT invokes the sights and sounds of an era that was over almost as soon as it started. The gorgon sisters move from shock-rock obscurity, to snake-sploitation sellout status, to revered icons at a pace like punk rock pioneers of legend. Through image makeovers and fierce internal power struggles, we track the rise, fall, and squirming headless death rattle of Medusa and the band that would forever petrify the face of rock-and-roll.
