A World Premiere Musical Comedy by the authors that brought you the popular "Don't Hug Me" musical comedies that have had over 200 productions throughout North America.
Adapted into a musical from Phil Olson's Award-Winning comedy, "Crappie Talk," "Don't Hug Me, We're Family" is the sixth in the "Don't Hug Me"
franchise of musical comedies.
The setting is The Bunyan, a little north woods bar in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota. In the bar is a radio station; KOLD Radio, Bunyan Bay. The bar owners are Gunner and Clara Johnson. Gunner is the host of Cräppie Talk, a radio program devoted entirely to ice fishing for Cräppies.
Gunner has no listeners.
Gunner's wife, Clara, is the host of Book Beat. Everyone listens to Book Beat.
Enter Sal Carducci and Donna DeCasola, two fish out of water Brooklyn Italians. Donna divorced Sal and fled to the farthest corner of the world to get away from him; Bunyan Bay. Sal follows Donna to Bunyan Bay from New York to win back her love. In the process, Sal buys KOLD Radio, promotes Clara to General Manager and fires Gunner. Gunner's work is cut out for him. He needs his radio job, he needs his dignity, but most important, he needs Clara.
