Pineapple Shaped Lamps, or PSL, is a performance troupe known for comedy-and perhaps oddity; the PSL players are not known for drama or tragedy. But the group is taking on a dramatic (maybe tragic) tale: the rise and fall of comic book artist and author Jack Kirby: King Kirby, onstage at Red Barn Studio Theatre on 3rd Street April 13-30. Jack Kirby created comics for Marvel, then DC, then Marvel again, spanning the late 1950s through the late 1970s. He created or co-created Captain America, The Fantastic Four, The Hulk, X-Men, and more. Listen to Director Blake Howard and actor Bryan Cournoyer talk about the play above. 

Tickets for the show are available at the door and online .

Pineapple Shaped Lamps presents "King Kirby," April 13-30 at Red Barn Studio Theatre. Thursdays-Saturdays @ 8:00pm, Sundays @3:00pm.
