Things To Ruin

Things To Ruin

Conceived by Joe Iconis and John Simpkins

Overview

Things to Ruin is an incendiary collection of songs by Kleban and Larson Award Winner Joe Iconis. Originally directed by co-conceiver John Simpkins, Things to Ruin is a theatrical rock concert about human beings who are messy, emotional, drugged up, knocked down, inspired, electric and who don't have nearly enough time to cause the kind of commotion they so desperately need to. Variety called it "So much fun that it's a little overwhelming – 'transporting' is probably the best word!"
