Over the last seven seasons, Bob’s Burgers has developed loyal audience, and even won a Emmy award for Outstanding Animated Program back in 2014. So while plenty of the folks at Have a Heart Skyway can recite lines from the show, we’re pretty curious as to what the Columbia City Theater’s staging of Bob’s Buns! Buns! Buns! will be like. But since the friendly budtenders here are always up for an adventure, we think this could be an entertaining evening, especially if you pre-funk with some of our flower, concentrates, or edibles. So here’s what we know — and what we think.
According the description on the Columbia City Theater’s website, Buns! Buns! Buns! is based around a “lost episode” of the show, where Bob gets food poisoning, and has flashbacks about choice moments from the show. Given that there’s a fairly extensive cast list, we’re guessing what audiences will see is some new — non-Fox approved — sequences which tie together a string of scenes where the performers act out some of the scenes from the show. There’s also the promise of a banned Bob’s Burgers commercial, which we’re betting is entirely fiction and based around the jingle in the clip below.
Now, this isn’t the first time Bob’s Burgers has made the leap from the small screen to the stage, as the television cast did a series of table reads back in 2014, and this version has been performed in Portland as recently as May. Reviews were hard for us to come by, but we think Bob’s Buns! Buns! Buns! sounds like one heck of a good time.
Of course, if you’re going to be in Have a Heart Skyway’s neighborhood, you should make sure to stop in at Tuta Bella, which is conveniently close to the Columbia City Theater. This gem has some of the best pizza in Seattle, and we can’t recommend it highly enough.
Bob’s Buns! Buns! Buns! Will run Saturday, September 9th at 6pm and 8:30pm. To get advance tickets, head to the Columbia City Theater’s official site.
And of course, make sure to stop by Have a Heart beforehand!
