Plot Summary

The Heartbreak Hotel nightclub in Providence is having a busy night: the owner's politician father is trying to shut the club down, one of the bands is making phone calls to the afterworld, and a pathetic folk-singer/terrorist is planning to make this his night of flaming glory. Includes such musical numbers as "I Married a Tree" and "Why Do We Feed the Broads?" Written by Jean-Marc Rocher

Quotes Stanley Matis: You know what's wrong with you people? You're ignorant. You don't know anything. But there's hope for you yet. You're all going to die - someday. Death makes you smart. You can take a complete idiot and kill him (or her) and he knows more than the smartest person alive: he knows what death is. So don't worry. Help is on the way.
