San Francisco, California – The award-winning TV comedy “Mystery Science Theater 3000” (MST3K) is coming to BroadwaySF’s Golden Gate Theatre in an all-new LIVE show featuring Joel Hodgson, original host and the creative vision behind the beloved TV and Netflix comedy series for more than three decades, in his final live tour. Produced by Alternaversal LLC, Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live: The Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour will play the Golden Gate Theatre with the never-before-screened films: No Retreat, No Surrender on January 31 at 8pm and February 1 at 2pm and Circus of Horrors on February 1 at 8pm.
Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, October 18 at 10am PT through broadwaysf.com.
Following the wildly successful “Watch Out for Snakes! Tour” in 2017 and “30th Anniversary Tour” in 2018, Hodgson will don the red jumpsuit one final time as Joel Robinson to host Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live: The Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour alongside the world’s greatest – and only – movie riffing robots, Tom Servo, Crow, and Gypsy. The show gives fans the chance to sit in the same theater with their favorite characters and promises all of the MST3K signatures and rapid-fire hilarity that have built MST3K’s loyal following over more than 30 years: a cheesy B-movie, hilarious riffing, wisecracking robots, silly sketches, and Hodgson in the red jumpsuit as host Joel Robinson.
“This is our third national tour, and it’s bigger than the first two combined!,” said Hodgson. “I really wanted to do something special since it’s my farewell tour with MST3K Live. Also, Tom, Crow, and Gypsy have become such great live performers, I decided to give them the ultimate challenge: a movie riffing robot circus!”
“MST3K contains some of the HIPPEST, deepest SATIRE of the generation.”
– Los Angeles Times
Premiering in 1988 on KTMA-TV in Minneapolis, MST3K has earned its place in history as one of the Top 100 TV Shows of all time (Time, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly), receiving multiple Emmy® nominations, and a Peabody Award along the way. Following a record-setting Kickstarter campaign, the series was revived in 2017 with all new episodes now streaming on Netflix.
“30 years later, that INGENIOUS B-movie spoof is STILL GOING STRONG.”
– The New York Times
