Hasty Pudding Theatricals continues its 168-year-old all-male student drag comedy tradition with That 1770s Show, a campy Boston-themed historical farce. After spoiled little brat Anne Heritance demands that her pushover father Governor Bucky Hampalace raise taxes yet again, the colonists are yankee-doodle done with British rule. With the help of the governor's new gold-digging wife Mae Flower and hunky French fur-trapper Seymour Beavers, the colonists plot to kidnap Anne and send her back to England for a permanent tea-time-out. However, when the colonists run into delusional sailor Ahab Bitualliar, who's followed a mysterious creature into Boston Hahbah, they discover they may have a bigger fish to fry. Catch sea monster Codzilla, fiery seamstress Betsy Gloss, recovering alcoholic Benjamin Dranklin and more in this colonial comedy at Harvard University's Farkas Hall.
Running time is approximately two hours, with one 15-minute intermission.
