The Last Smoker in America Tickets

In The Last Smoker in America, a dysfunctional family is struggling to survive in a world where smoking has recently been outlawed. Pam is having an impossible time trying to quit. Her husband Ernie dreams of being a rock star and relentlessly practices his electric guitar in the basement. Their teenage son Jimmy listens to so much rap music he’s convinced he’s black, while their nosy, anti-smoking zealot neighbor Phyllis lurks around trying to catch transgressors mid-puff.

Story

What is the Story of The Last Smoker in America?
Imagine waking up tomorrow, and your favorite vice has become illegal: That’s Pam’s reality in the new musical The Last Smoker in America. Pam is doing her best to quit smoking (or finding a way to sneak a cigarette that doesn’t land her in jail). Meanwhile, her husband still can’t find a job, and without his meds, her teenage son ranges from rapper to video game addict to cross-dresser. As if her family problems weren't enough, Pam’s next door neighbor Phyllis is a reformed smoker who, with the help of Jesus, will stop at nothing to rid America of its last smoker.
