What Doesn't Kill You [blah blah] Stronger

Cabaret / Musical Theatre
Scaled image1
A river guide gets swallowed by a hippopotamus...and survives.

A British stewardess makes it through not one, not two, but three shipwrecks, including the maiden voyage of the ill-fated Titanic.

An Alabama housewife gets hit by a meteorite and lives to tell the tale!

These true stories and more make up What Doesn't Kill You [blah blah] Stronger, a love letter to misfortune, and a tribute to those unlucky (or lucky?) souls who managed to escape it. A unique and hilarious experience not to be missed.
