ARCHIE'S WEIRD PARODY is a new 16-song rock musical about suburbia, conforming, and changing your fate, even if you’re a character trapped in a comic book. Fans of meta stories, Riverdale, and Archie Comics will be thrilled.
We follow Jughead, after realizing that he is trapped in a doomed narrative. He discovers the killing of Jason Blossom is what starts Riverdale's descent into madness. So, with help from Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Cheryl, he adventures through the story to try to stop it. But with a guilty audience that is always watching, can anyone ever really escape?
With a rock musical theater score, Archie’s Weird Parody uses Archie characters to make audiences ponder questions of suburbia. How safe is suburbia for marginalized people? Are generational cycles escapable? What happens when we demand more?
Archie’s Weird Parody is created with love for these characters, and for everyone who has ever wondered what happens when the curtain falls.
