One of the forerunners of making a lot of money off doing ridiculous shit whilst being a maniupulative genius, Tucker Max confirmed something that we had been speculating for a few weeks--his best-selling baby, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, is moving from the rage dungeons to a much more prim-and-proper venue. Max elaborates on the project in his blog post, with a few details of note:
You may have heard something about a play based on my book thats coming out soon. This is not bullshit. It’s a real thing, its called “I Hope They Serve Beer on Broadway,” and it begins June 5th. Here’s the Variety article about it, and here’s where you can get tickets.
There are quite a few funny things about this play:
First: The only thing I know about Broadway plays is that I’ve never been to one.
Second: Look at the name of the dude playing me: Abe Goldfarb. He’s pictured below. Yes, that is exactly what you think it is: A Ginger Jew. That dude is playing me, Tucker Max, in this play. Seriously.
Here’s what happened:
A few years ago Kit Sanderson met with me about doing a play based on my book. Since I know nothing about plays and have no real desire to learn, I cut a deal with him: He does all the work in adapting my book to the stage, he can have full creative freedom in every way in creating it, but I wanted the playwright credit (for legal/IP reasons I’ll explain later). He agreed. That’s why the official title is “I Hope They Serve Beer in Broadway by Tucker Max,” but I’m not creatively involved at all. This is Kit Sandersons baby, from start to finish.
Rundown- It's based enitrely on the book, a guy with multiple stereotypes is playing him, and he's not creatively involved. Should be exciting, or at the very least pretty interesting. Read the rest of the post here.
