Reno, NV. Brüka Theatre Presents – Mr. Burns, A Post - Electric Play. Anne Washburn wrote this dramatic dark comedy musical after exploring what it would be like "to take a TV show and push it past the apocalypse and see what happened to it" and while she originally considered Friends, Cheers, and M*A*S*H, she ultimately settled on The Simpsons. Washburn held a workshop for a week in a bank vault beneath Wall Street, which was being used as a shared rehearsal space in 2008. Mr. Burns played in NYC until October of 2013. This is the northern Nevada premiere presentation of Mr. Burns. Mr. Burns opens June 3 and plays through June 25, 2016. Wednesday – Saturday shows begin at 8 PM. The Sunday, June 12 matinee begins at 2 PM and is followed by a talkback with the company.
