Comedians Matt Candio and Jon Lunger are about to take you on a journey through the ridiculousness of modern cinema in a hilarious send-up/take-down of one of Hollywood’s most legendary films. The movie comes to life as it’s recreated live with little-to-no-preparation by two movie-loving weirdos. Spoiler Alert is a frenetic, pseudo-improvised comedy show that will remind you why you love movies in the first place.

This time up it’s George Lucas’ 1977’s space opera, Star Wars: Episode 4 - A New Hope!

To be clear: This show is Matt and Jon recreating Star Wars: Episode 4 from memory, just the two of them, live, on stage.

"It'll happen. It's going to be uncomfortable, but it's going to happen."
- Ryan Hill, Director of Programming, ArtsQuest

Past Spoiler Alert performances include: Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, Die Hard, Jurassic Park, Batman Returns, Independence Day, Home Alone, TITANIC, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Jingle All The Way, and Face/Off.
