"... so smart it made your head spin." - The New York Times

"... one of the most affecting tributes to theatre and tenacity you're likely to see all year." - New York Post

"From hell, Mr. Burns sends us to heaven." - The Village Voice

What will endure when the cataclysm arrives—when the grid fails, society crumbles, and we’re faced with the task of rebuilding? Anne Washburn’s imaginative, dark comedy propels us forward nearly a century, following a new civilization stumbling into its future. A paean to live theatre and to the resilience of Bart Simpson through the ages, Mr. Burns is an animated exploration of how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another.
