Dudesong, an Epic Poem Translation of The Big Lebowski, to Launch on Peoples Improv Theater Stage

Industry: Theatre

Show set for March 6, 2016, at 1pm

NEW YORK, NEW YORK (PRUnderground) February 10th, 2016

Phil Wells, author of Dudesong, is pleased to announce that a dramatic reading of his postmodern epic poem adaptation of The Big Lebowski is coming to the Peoples Improv Theater.

Dudesong reimagines cult classic The Big Lebowski as a Homeric epic poem, offering all of the favorite characters and moments from the film in epic translation. The book offers a foreword by Oliver Benjamin, founder of Dudeism, that will also be read during the stage reading.

The Peoples Improv Theatre is an award-winning comedy theater and training center offering instruction, performances, and development of original comedy. Wells and his team look forward to presenting Dudesong in the form of rhyming verse in the style of the Victorian romantic poets at the Peoples Improv Theatre in March 2016.

Dudesong is currently available on Amazon, where readers have left high remarks. One recent reader said, “Funny as anything, well written, a slightly different take on Lebowski and his journey — you’ll enjoy reading this once you get into it. I found it coming alive when I decided that if it was a song, it was meant to be said aloud, and so I read.”

Dudesong can be found in paperback or Kindle format at

The book will be performed by Dudesong players, including Wells, David Carl, Eitan Levine, and Gary DeNoia. “Join us for a dramatic reading of the entire book as performed by the Dudesong players…A great time will be had by all – some burgers, some beers, a few laughs,” said Wells.

The dramatic reading will be held at the Peoples Improv Theatre on Sunday March 6, 2016, at 1pm. Tickets are currently on sale for $15 at
