Remember the Seth Rogen and James Franco movie The Interview? Consider Above the 38th: The World’s Greatest Poet vs. the World’s Cruelest Tyrant its less offensive, just as funny cousin. On the night of his Las Vegas show, the World’s Greatest Poet is kidnapped and dragged to North Korea, where he must perform for Kim Jong-un. If he doesn’t meet the leader’s expectations, Kim Jong-un threatens to assassinate John Kerry and launch a nuclear attack. With the fate of the world on his shoulders, the poet weaves tales of love and loss, desperate fathers and flying cars, fungus on Mars, of heartbreak, high-speed pursuits and horrors in the night, each poem a more passionate appeal than the last. Will Kim Jong-un be moved to mercy? Or will the world end in Armageddon? Come to Chicago’s Public House Theatre early and indulge in a drink special to start your festive, fun night off right.
