Finally! The gang is back with an all-new episode of everyone’s fave live-action TV Show, Reverend Jen’s Really Cool Neighborhood, the only stage show ever named “Best Off-Off-Off Broadway Musical Comedy Theater” by the Village Voice!

In Episode 5: “Quest for Cameltoe”, it’s autumn in the Really Cool Neighborhood and that can only mean one thing: It’s time for the annual Renaissance Faire! Unfortunately, no one can afford the Faire’s admission so Rev. Jen invites all her neighbors over for a Ren Faire themed party! Among the guests are Jen’s roomies: Mr. Clean (Faceboy) who lives in Rev. Jen’s closet, a giant talking roach and Rev. Jen Junior (Jen’s Chihuahua.) They’re joined by their new next-door neighbor “Wendy the Leper”, Moonshine the Bartender, Teen Witch and Mangina the Mailman who brings a letter from he and Jen’s son, an 18-month old M.I.T. Student who’s gained telekinetic powers (played by Moby!) Merkin, the wisest man in the neighborhood, also stops by with his intern, Arthur, who he’s temporarily turned into a squirrel. Havoc ensues when a real squirrel falls for him. Rejected, she turns to drugs and alcohol like everyone else in the neighborhood!

It’s all fun and games until a REAL DRAGON shows up and begins to terrorize the hood! He’s after the virginal Teen Witch and he will stop at nothing to get her: killing the Captain of the football team and several others along the way! Merkin then sends the gang on a mystical mission where they encounter “The Lady of the East River.” Will they stop the carnage or is the Really Cool Neighborhood doomed forever? Find out in this hour-long spectacle of unprecedented grooviness!

“Rev Jen’s ‘Really Cool Neighborhood’ is a great and fascinating experiment in theater, the stage equivalent of the Bride of Frankenstein’s shriek at being alive.  The actors in this ongoing production are a cross between the inhabitants of a locked-ward and an eager summer-stock theater group. — Jonathan Ames, creator of HBO’s BORED TO DEATH
