Broadway fame, star-studded parties, and confessional limo rides on down-low visits to the Stonewall Inn: this is the world of Snagglepuss in Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles, the bestselling new series written by comic book mastermind Mark Russell.

Released by DC Entertainment in six issues through the first half of 2018, this reimagining sees America’s beloved pink mountain lion as – Heavens to Murgatroyd!– a discreetly gay playwright under attack by the House Un-American Activities Committee.

Set during the “Red Scare” panic over communism, the idea began with Mark Russell sending tweets as Snagglepuss in the voice of Tennessee Williams. The resulting comic series, Exit Stage Left, featuring Mike Feehan and a rotating roster of artists, is a hard-hitting political satire of mid-century fame, shame, and social change.

Brenna Geffers, whose Philadelphia company Die-Cast staged last year’s Pericles, teams up with Mark Russell for a special staged reading that brings Hanna-Barbera’s lovable hero to life. Celebrity guest stars appear in cameos as Huckleberry Hound, Marilyn Monroe, Lillian Hellman, Dorothy Parker, and the Rosenbergs. Not to be missed, it is an unexpected comic understanding of Williams as iconic American.

Based upon the six issue comic series Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles by Mark Russell, published by DC Comics.
