If you didn’t get THWAK’d the last time The Umbilical Brothers were at The New Vic, here’s your chance! Equipped with one microphone, two twisted imaginations and some seriously amped up vocal chords, the kings of theatrical action comedy return with the best of their worst wrapped up in some brand new hi-jinx. These toon-like troublemakers effortlessly mimic every sound imaginable, creating a warped world where they dominate the Olympic table tennis finals, morph into super-intelligent alien dinosaurs and summon the likes of ET, Yoda and Gollum. The Umbilical Brothers whip up another “uproarious fiesta of carefully choreographed mayhem” (Time Out New York) that must be “heard” to be believed!
