Reno, NV. April – May 2013 Six Women With Brain Death or Expiring Minds Want To Know (The Musical) is a hard rockin’, harder talkin’ cult classic. This fast-paced, take-no-prisoners satire of life and pop culture at the end of the millennium is written by a pack of folks including Mark Houston and the original cast. This show features the talented Cami Thompson alongside a local cast of favorites and is full of bizarre, hysterical songs and sketches that steer this entertaining musical directed by Mary Bennett with Bill Quinby as Musical Director.
