Slater will be played by actor Chad Miller in a new play called Wild Blue, which seeks to tell the story of that fateful day when Slater said screw it and disembarked his plane down in the inflatable slide, though with some Wizard of Oz influence.
Wild Blue, which is a real Broadway play in that it’ll go down at the Access theatre on Broadway (way down Broadway) in New York City, opens March 30 and runs through April 9. Here’s a little of what to expect:
The play imagines the hysterical and haunting moments that caused Slater to curse out passengers over the intercom, slide down the emergency chute, and become an instant Facebook sensation. The production will feature the original song, “The Nearest Exit,” by Patrick Gaughan.
But wait! It gets better with this alert: “Warning: Wild Blue contains exploding soda bottles, panic buttons, cigarette smoke, loud noises, flashing lights, and groping TSA officers.” Could this be the first Broadway play in which the TSA plays a role?
If you’d like to catch Wild Blue during its short run, tickets can be had here, and they begin at only $15.
