$5 - $18

“look. life is bad. evryones sad. we’re all gona die. but i alredy bought this inflatable boumcy castle so r u gona take ur shoes off or wat” -Jomny Sun

Join artist, illustrator, award-winning playwright, comedy writer, and Twitter personality JONNY SUN for a presentation of Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too: A Book, by Jomny Sun (the alien).

Through this story of a lost alien finding acceptance among the creatures of Earth, we will all learn how to be a little more human. And for all of us earth-bound creatures here on this planet, we can all be reminded that sometimes, it takes an outsider to help us see ourselves for who we truly are. And it’s also really funny.

“Sun’s recipe of amusement tinged with melancholy has won him the fandom of big names in comedy and entertainment. The comedian Will Arnett told me, “I just latched onto his particular brand of — it’s not just humor but, beneath the surface, a very resonating life lesson.” When Lin-Manuel Miranda first met Sun backstage at ‘Hamilton,” he joyously tweeted: “I met JOMNY SUN! It’s a goob night!'” – “A Whimsical Wordsmith Charts a Course Beyond Twitter,” The New York Times

Buy tickets here after June 22.
