Only one more week until the Louisiana Tech University department of theatre opens the award-winning musical comedy revival of “Six Women with Brain Death or Expiring Minds Want to Know” after 20 years.


In only one week, the “irreverent, sexy, yet wise and ironic” award-winning musical comes back to Arthur W. Stone Theatre, located in Tech’s Howard Center for the Performing Arts, Oct. 30 through Nov. 3 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 5 at 2 p.m.


For tickets, call the box office at (318) 257 – 3942 or visit www.latechuniversitytheatre.com. Stone Theatre box office hours are 1:30-4:45 p.m., Monday through Friday. Ticket prices are as follows: $25 for general audience, $20 for seniors (60+) and children under 14 and $15 for students.


Light-hearted and comical, “Six Women with Brain Death” pokes fun at the absurdity of tabloid headlines and the day-to-day hiccups of life. This fast-paced musical also provides a great opportunity to take a long-awaited and well-deserved lady’s night out. In a series of bizarre but hysterical songs and sketches, “Six Women with Brain Death” explores topics such as TV soap operas, Ken and Barbie fantasies, game shows and much more. Twenty years later, the human condition remains the same, but this revival promises to bring new laughs and new insights from fresh faces. Day-to-day hiccups still come, and, therefore, the laughter still comes with them. Come on Halloween night dressed in costume to be automatically entered into a raffle for a chance to win a free $50 gift card to Roma’s Italian Restaurant and a bottle of wine.

Bambi goes haywire in forest with Uzi! To the expiring mind of a modern American woman, life can read like a tabloid headline. “Six Women With Brain Death or Expiring Minds Want to Know” is a wild and very left-of-center view of the world from an entirely feminine standpoint.


In a series of bizarre but hysterical songs and sketches, the authors explore TV soap operas, “genuine press-on nails,” Barbie and Ken’s secret fantasy life, divas, a unique and new way of recycling, and what “is” and “is not” feminine – with an unforgettable detour through a forest where Bambi meets Rambo.


Definitely not for the faint-hearted, 6 Women With Brain Death is a hard rockin’, harder talkin’ cult classic that we are excited to bring you again!
