Down With The Sickness

When the 2020 COVID pandemic hit, it crippled many industries. In hopes of giving a little back - as well as propping up the critically important Broadway play financial sector, George wrote, produced, and acted in the pandemic-themed "Socially Distanced Guys and Dolls." Although critics called it, "confusing," and "sick, but for different reasons than the coronavirus," the play was a hit. Following in George's footsteps, Neal starred in the one-man play, "Priscilla, Queen of the Pandemic." Slightly annoying George, Neal's play was called "Even more confusing!" and was even more financially successful.

The boys went back and forth, creating one COVID-inspired (and intellectually thieving) hit after another, including: "Jesus Christ CoronaStar”; “From Here to Etern—*wheeeze* ughhhhh Imma Stay Right Here"; and “West Side COVID.”

In 2021, George finally completed his EGOT with both “Oliver! Put on Your Damn Mask!”; and “Don’t Kiss Me, Kate.”

 

Down With The Sickness - Ironically, wearing this mask made the actor very, very sick.  The rest of the cast didn't miss a beat, pretended this was part of the show, and the play went on.

George and Neal collaborated on “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to My Vaccination.” It starred Martha Plimpton - for no other reason that Neal really liked the name, "Plimpton." Their foray into Broadway musicals was not entirely successful, though - George and Neal were both sued over the trauma that their odd play, “The Rocky Horror Zoom" inflicted on the first 16 rows. (Most plays do not end with the need to apply nail polish to theatergoers to remove attached objects) It didn't help their side when Neal, under oath, stated, "Tha play? Man... Though we created it, it honestly traumatized me almost as much as Meet the Feebles.

After their successes from a trio of broadway hits (“My Fair Patient”; “AntisepticSpray"; and “The Sound of Coughing”), they called it a day. Still, one can still hear George muttering under his breath from time to time, "You know... we still haven't made “Singing in the Rain 2: Why I Can’t Taste My Food”...)
