Hideout Online Presents: Legally Not Allowed to Leave the Room (Live-stream)
October 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm$5
LEGALLY NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE THE ROOM is a complete, feature-length re-imagining of the cult classic film THE ROOM. Part parody, part loving homage, it is The Room remade by over 50 teams of artists, using whatever they had around them during the quarantine. Musicians, comedians, puppeteers, animators, and video artists transform the original film from a bizarre melodrama into a kaleidoscope of bad accents, even worse wigs, stock footage, acid trips, prank shows, body doubles, and Lynchian horror.
Comedian Tyler Jackson, co-creator of the Hideout’s Late Late Breakfast comedy show, spearheaded the creation of Legally Not Allowed to Leave the Room, enlisting the help of comedic friends from across the country to make a scene-by-scene remake of everyone’s favorite cult film disaster. The project features performers, writers, and artists from places like Adult Swim, The Onion, and Comedy Central, popular podcasters and TikTok creators, and even a few full-on rock bands!
The online premiere of Legally Not Allowed to Leave the Room is streaming on the Hideout’s website Friday, October 2, 2020, at 6PM PT/8PM CT/9PM ET. Tickets are $5, with proceeds going to NIVA to help support independent venues that remain shuttered during quarantine. For tickets and information, check out https://www.hideoutchicago.com/
