“Richard Harris’s My Boy is one of the weirdest pieces of pop music to go overlooked by music nerds and pop aficionados alike,” says Dave Satterwhite, whose world-premiere satire My Boy performs at Gorilla Tango Bucktown on Saturday, June 7, at 7:30 p.m. and on Friday, June 13, at midnight. “It's a dark, self-involved mess that depicts the Irish actor and singer at his histrionic worst.”
“I was drawn to the show because of Richard Harris,” explains Ed McGuire, star of the Nealshow Productions dark comedy. “I watched Harris on Carson with Sean Connery, Michael Caine, and Peter O'Toole.”
