  • 8:00 PMCraig Liggeons' MY LIFE IN 19inches
  • Thumb 25398640 10213138357167973 4317094789289146470 n 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM


    MY LIFE IN 19inches is Craig Liggeons' hit One-Man show about one man's love of Television. Spanning 45 years in the life of a TV addict, the show begins on a Saturday morning in 1973 and travels through the 80's, 90's, and right up to today. The entire performance takes place in a childs bedroom and will take you back to a time when the only day you could watch your favorite cartoons was on Saturday morning. It will also take you back to a time when the N-word was commonly used on network sitcoms with no disclaimers beforehand. In the days before cable, relive the agony of trying to watch the 1980 World Series on a black & white TV while adjusting the antenna to get a clear picture. Do you remember what show you were watching in 1994 when it was interrupted by the OJ Simpson white bronco chase? Once upon a time Craig thought he had to quit his job in order to have his own TV show, but thanks to the popularity of Reality TV, a person can keep their job (Parking meter attendant, Pawn shop owner, etc.) and STILL have their own TV show! There will also be a musical tribute to MTV featuring music videos back when MTV played music videos. This show is not only about how much TV has changed, but how we've changed the way we look at TV, and more importantly, how TV has changed the way we look at each other.
