It’s Always Sunny gang reenact ‘The Nightman Cometh’ musical

Over the weekend, the entire cast from FX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – otherwise known as the best sitcom on television and possibly the history of the world – reenacted the musical Day Man at the Troubadour in LA. Everyone, including Artemis, The Waitress and even Danny DeVito as Frank.

There doesn’t seem to be much written about this event, but I did find the video evidence!  And I’m mainly pointing out this happened because, uh, I’d like to know more how this all went down.  The one write up at Franklin Avenue, doesn’t really reveal a whole lot.

I’ve had “Dayman” and “Nightman” stuck in my head for days now, thanks to Friday night’s special “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” performance at the Troubadour (they did a second show on Saturday as well).

It was an interesting experiment: The cast of FX’s always irreverent “Sunny” hit the stage to re-enact this past November’s season finale, “The Nightman Cometh.”

However, we get a bit more from Matthew Gonzalez, who writes: “They even did extra songs that weren’t in the episode but helped complete the linear story of the play (this includes Dennis preforming Charlie’s original Dylan-esque nightman song with Mac joining in for the second half). The show was hilarious and it was an amazing experience seeing one of my favorite T.V. shows preformed live–especially in the intimate setting of the Troubador. The cast even came out after the show to sign autographs and take some pictures. I seriously could not have asked for a better birthday gift.”

Sounds like it was a gonzo of a good time.

    I saw it last night at the house of blues in boston. It was funny and def worth to see. Although i would of liked it to be a little longer. It was prob 20 mins and for 80 dollars it wasnt worth the money. They let you watch the new episode and then go into the play. Its all around 50 mins. So in my mind i wouldnt go see it again if i knew what i was paying for. It would of been cool if they did alittle Q and A after instead of running off the stage.

      What a double-sided coin. Sounds great, but I had no idea it was $80 and it sounds like it wasn't worth the price. Unfortunately, they didn't come to Portand. The closest was Seattle. So I guess in that regard I was lucky, otherwise I would've ponied up the moola.

    Take your pick between either, A) crazy, unwieldy, or madcap B) like gonzo porn where you skip the unnecessary stuff and get straight sex scenes.

    I think either is applicable in this situation.

    How is it a 'gonzo' of a good time?
    As in 'gonzo journalism'?
