A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Chemo

Luke’s is a life marked by cancer, not defined by it. These are tales of growing up, getting sick, getting better, getting sick again, dating while bald, partying while on chemo and keeping your semen in the freezer.

A year-long regimen of chemotherapy and radiotherapy wasn’t quite what Luke Ryan had in mind when he turned twenty-two. Especially having been through the same rigmarole when he was eleven. Needless to say, Luke is eyeing off thirty-three warily. Clearly there’s only one course of action to take when you’ve been handed two life-threatening diagnoses in twenty-two years: comedy. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Chemo is a warm-hearted and hilarious memoir from someone who has laughed in the face of more adversity than most of us will encounter in a lifetime. Luke’s is a life marked by cancer, not defined by it. These are tales of growing up, getting sick, getting better, getting sick again, dating while bald, partying while on chemo and keeping your semen in the freezer. But, above all, it’s a story about the redemptive power of family when everything else is falling apart.

The Franken-Coleman campaign saga really begins with the tragic plane crash resulting in the death of Senator Paul Wellstone. That moment provided Norm Coleman his second opportunity for major political reinvention (the first being when he switched parties). Following the tragedy, Coleman shifted gears to run a kinder, gentler series of television ads that hardly mentioned his new opponent, Walter Mondale. Meanwhile, when Republicans accused Democrats of turning the Wellstone memorial service into a carefully choreographed political rally, Franken was outraged. He immediately set upon a mission to unseat Coleman, which ended up with their eventual head-to-head run in 2008. The unprecedented recount and legal drama that ultimately decided the election was an appropriate coda to what had already been an extraordinary Minnesota Senate race. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Senate tells the whole story.

“I’ve been single for so long, I’ve started having sexual fantasies about my vibrator,†? riffs Karla for her captive, cancer-ward audience. The patients—her mother, who’s recovering from surgery for ovarian cancer, and her roommate behind the curtain, aren’t laughing—or even awake—but there’s someone else in the room . . .In Halley Feiffer’s “ painfully irresistible†? (The New York Times) new play, a foul-mouthed twenty-something comedian and a middle-aged man embroiled in a nasty divorce are brought together unexpectedly when their cancer-stricken mothers become roommates in the hospital. Together, this unlikely duo must negotiate some of life’s biggest challenges . . . while making some of the world’s most inappropriate jokes. Can these two very lost people learn to laugh through their pain and lean on each other when all they really want to do is run away? In A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of New York City, Halley Feiffer slays in a work that’s dark and disturbing and yet totally hilarious. The acclaimed world premiere at MCC Theater featured Beth Behrs, Erik Lochtefeld, Lisa Emery, and Jacqueline Sydney, and was directed by Trip Cullman.
