Harmon Leon in Obey McGonagall!The Brick (579 Metropolitan Ave at Lorimer Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn) Map it $10
Obey McGonagall! is a musical comedy (or comedy with music) about
William Topaz McGonagall (1823-1902) - considered the worst poet in Scottish history. McGonagall was so giftedly bad - he unwittingly backed into genius.
American comedian Harmon Leon (Howard Stern, Carson Daly) draws uncanny comparisons to his own life – in this celebration of heroic failure, standing up for the underdog, and, of course, all things McGonagall.
Expect songs, dance numbers, and cute adorable kittens sleeping backstage.
Remember: Obey McGonagall!
