The headline certainly is. Well done, subby.

One of my favorite monologues of his:

"Ye miserable, crawlin' worms. Are ye here again then? Have ye come like Nimshi, son of Rehoboam, secretly out of your doomed houses, to hear what's comin' to ye? Have ye come, old and young, sick and well, matrons and virgins, if there be any virgins amongst you, which is not likely, the world being in the wicked state that it is.

Have ye come to hear me tell you of the great, crimson, licking flames of hell fire? Aye! You've come, dozens of ye. Like rats to the granary, like field mice when it's harvest home. And what good will it do ye? You're all damned! Damned! Do you ever stop to think what that word means? No, you don't.

It means endless, horrifying torment! It means your poor, sinful bodies stretched out on red-hot gridirons, in the nethermost, fiery pit of hell and those demons mocking ye while they waves cooling jellies in front of ye. You know what it's like when you burn your hand, taking a cake out of the oven, or lighting one of them godless cigarettes? And it stings with a fearful pain, aye? And you run to clap a bit of butter on it to take the pain away, aye?

Well, I'll tell ye, there'll be no butter in hell!"

The video was cool too. Gotta love a famous actor inviting the audience up on stage with him.

I assume it's an updated version of this.

YOU SHALL NOT PASS THIS UP

By Grabthar's Hammer, what a bargain.

Sure wish this scene could have been worked into the headline.

So is there somewhere that lists the tour dates/locations?

Allow me to Romero for a moment and point out that usually one uses articles like this to drive ticket sales, which is usually aided by linking to such useful information

His Richard III movie was awesome. I am not a big Shakespeare fan, but he trimmed the script and created an amazing alternate 1930s setting. It was a visual feast.

Allow me to be a douchebag for a moment, and point out that there is a thing on the intertubes called the googles or something, where you can quickly find places like this and this.

/over half the performances are already sold out, so get your tix quickly if you want to go

Ditto. That movie is criminally underrated.
