Last Call Cleveland has one disclaimer about Michael Stanley Superstar: The Unauthorized Biography of the Cuyahoga Messiah: The comedy troupe performed "no research when writing this play . . . Instead, they relied on hearsay and speculation." Reunion Tour, the expanded encore version of the show, features fresh, apocryphal misadventures and semi-celebrity cameos -- in addition to the world premiere of the video for the faux-Stanley's "Cleveland, Cleveland, Cleveland!" After all, this is his town.
