HOUSTON — What do you get when you mix Houston Rockets basketball with musical theatre? Introducing Small Ball!
The basketball musical collaboration with a pretty big twist. Created by Rockets General Manager, Daryl Morey, who commissioned the one of a kind show.
The Gulliver's Travels-esk musical follows an oversized and depressed MBA castoff named Michael Jordan, as he's recruited by the King/Head Coach of the small island nation of Lilliput. In the midst of trying to increase the tiny nations basketball profile.
There's also a point guard named Pippin, giant rats from a media boat, and a Dr. Seuss reading Queen. And the story's all told through a series of post-game press conferences.
Small Ball runs through May 13th at the Catastrophic Theatre.
