The Disembodied Hand That Fisted Everyone to Death - the Musical! first appeared in the Bad Theatre Festival at the PIT Loft in NYC in October and November of 2015. After selling out all performances, the show opened on an extended run at the PIT Loft. After selling out three months of shows, we were transferred to the PIT Striker Mainstage. We were extended twice more, and then finally closed in June of 2016, garnering much praise.
