You can still see The Interview this week...sort of

Nick Leftley

If you're bummed about all the major theater chains deciding to abandon The Interview following threats made by probably-not-North-Korean-but-hey-that-makes-for-a-scarier-news-story-so-let's-roll-with-it hackers, don't despair: You can see it this Friday. Kind of. While the actual Seth Rogan and James Franco version of The Interview—which Time Out New York's David Ehrlich gave a four star review—is still hidden away in a bomb-proof vault somewhere, the brave souls of the Treehouse Theater will be inviting some top notch members of the Upright Citizens Brigade to perform a live reading of the script. The bad news is, the theater only seats around 50 people, and the event is first come, first served, so the scariest part of this whole thing may actually be waiting in line. (The show starts at 7pm, so you should start lining up well before that.)

Just to make sure North Korea knows where they stand on the issue, at 9:30, the theater will be putting on the delightfully named Fuck You Kim Jong Un! Starring Jaime Lutz as Sony co-chief Amy Pascal, the show tells the tale of a desperate Sony trying to put a stop to the theater's live reading of The Interview. The $5 ticket price will go to the Human Rights Watch charity, so at least something good has come out of this whole debacle.
