Trapped in Elon’s Mansion
September 28, 2019 @ 10:30 pm
For the first time in its history, POP Montreal International Music Festival presents a play as part of its eclectic programming
He was publicly disrespected by Elon Musk. Humiliated. Provoked. But when Montreal’s Joe Bagel took the “L” in an ugly Twitter tussle with Tesla’s CEO, he pledged to get even. Now he’s written a play about Los Angeles’s most famous car salesman—in Shakespearean verse—and is taking it on a WORLD TOUR.
TRAPPED IN ELON’S MANSION: WORLD TOUR beings on September 28th at Cinéma L’Amour: a celebrated Montreal Yiddish vaudeville theatre, now operating as a deliciously sinful skinflick emporium. The Montreal premiere precedes dates in London UK, San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles.
Featuring an all-star cast: Jay Z, Grimes, Azealia Banks, the Mayor of Los Angeles, the Princess of Norway, a sociopathic CEO in a long-tail tuxedo and The Voice Of Siri Herself—Joe Bagel’s play has been universally hailed as a masterpiece: he’s being called a “genius” (Esquire) and “the Shakespeare of the millennial generation” (The Independent). A far cry from what Montreal media used to call the disgraced Fairmount Bagel social media stuntman, like “professional piss-taker” (Cult MTL) and “semi-literate” (CBC).
Dress up, bring a date, bring a camera, bring a bagel: Joe Bagel is gunning for Broadway and it all starts at Cinéma L’Amour for POP Montreal.
