Cleveland Public Theatre Launches Browns Play

Oh dear lord. I don't know what to make of this. Um, just read the summary from CPT below.

A cabaret-style world-premiere by nationally recognized local playwright Eric Schmiedl, Browns Rules is both a send-up and a love-letter to The Cleveland Browns.

Three performer musicians and the audience are on a mission - successfully name the 29 rules of being a Cleveland Browns Fan and the Browns will win the Superbowl in 2010. In one night at CPT, three performers and the audience urgently attempt to alter history, save our city and name all 29 rules.

Part vaudeville, part sideshow, part variety show Browns Rules is an interactive exploration of the relationship between Cleveland and our beloved football team. With a rock band on stage, three performers combine storytelling and drama as they rip apart myths, celebrate heroes, and try to understand what makes the Cleveland Browns so important to our culture. What was the All-America Football Conference and who destroyed it? How did Paul Brown inspire his famous 1949 all-star team? Art Modell, friend or foe? Who called "Red Right 88?" Who wrote the song "Bernie, Bernie?" Cleveland Browns Stadium, asset or financial disaster? These questions and more are examined as Browns Rules looks at our dear Brownies and the city that loves and hates them.

They also posted this video which... is.... interesting.

The good part was.... the cowbell?
