    It’s 1965 and everything is just about to happen.

    Pop, subculture, superstars, feminism, drugs, bright lights and sex are about to rock the world like never before. Gob Squad takes the hand of the King Of Pop himself, Andy Warhol, to go back to the underground cinemas of New York City, back to where it all began.

    Gob Squad takes one of Warhol’s films, Kitchen, as the starting point for its quest for the original, the authentic, the here and now, the real me, the real you, the hidden depths beneath the shiny surfaces of modern life.

    Gob Squad’s Kitchen (You’ve Never Had It So Good) won the 2012 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience.

    Be prepared to seize this sublimely Warholian moment. For tickets and show time, visit Gob Squad
