Monkey Trouble Unleashed! is award-winning writer Joel B. New’s musical parody mashup of two critically obscure films. One is a family film about a capuchin monkey raised by a drunken gypsy thief to be a burglar and a pickpocket. When a young girl takes him in, he tries to start a new life, but his past can’t help but follow him. The other is a martial arts action thriller about a man raised by a ruthless crime boss to be a violent killing machine whenever his dog collar is removed. When a blind piano tuner takes him in, he tries to start a new life, but his past can’t help but follow him. Book Musical, Pop/Rock, Small Cast (5 Performers).
