Handmaid’s Tale: The Musical
Handmaid’s Tale: The Musical
Marcia Belsky and Melissa Stokoski present a comical and cathartic parody of the Margaret Atwood novel and Hulu original series The Handmaid’s Tale. Set in 2027 Brooklyn, the show depicts modern millennials in a dystopian near future and the perils they endure. It’s funny not sad ... we promise.
