Inspired by the long-running hit NPR show Car Talk — which is hosted by legendary (real-life) mechanics Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers — comes the hilarious new musical comedy, Car Talk: The Musical!!! at Central Square Theater.

Car Talk: The Musical is as silly, sensible, clever, funny and thought-provoking as the radio program that it is based upon. It is a wonderful way to set odometers for the Summer, check our guages and make sure the wheels are aligned before we drive into the sunset or to the beach, our vacation or even just the cleaners and grocery store. Car Talk: The Musical is a joy ride that we should all take.- Mark Favermann, Berkshire Fine Arts
Our hero – the overweight, always-late invertebrate Rusty Fenders – has racked up as many miles as his ‘93 KIA. Attempting to salvage happiness from the junkyard of his life, he collides with his ruthless boss Beaulah Gasket, his unrequited office romance Sheila, and the red-hot fantasy car Miata C. LaChassis. Can the Wizard of Cahs put the brakes on Rusty’s musical wipe-out? Car Talk: The Musical!!! is low-brow, high-octane fun. Car and Theater Magazine named this show the “best automotive musical of the twenty-first century, so far.”
A co-production of Underground Railway Theater and Suffolk University, the show was written by Suffolk faculty member Wesley Savick, with original music by Michael Wartofsky. In it, Rusty Fenders, the hapless owner of a lemon ’93 Kia, falls in love with Miata C. LaChassis. She guides him to the Emerald Garage, home to the Cah Wizard (portrayed by the recorded, heavily accented voices of Click and Clack themselves). Like the radio show, it’s a romantic comedy about being in love with your car — and so, so much more.
