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.
