As the highly anticipated 5th season of FXâ€™s original comedy series Itâ€™s Always Sunny In Philadelphia approaches, fans of the hit will have their chance to see the gang up close and in person as they take â€œThe Nightman Comethâ€ on a multi-city tour. The musical performance was written by Rob McElhenney (Mac), Charlie Day (Charlie) and Glenn Howerton (Dennis) who all star along with Kaitlin Olson (Sweet Dee), and Danny DeVito (Frank) with special appearances by Mary Elizabeth Ellis (The Waitress) and Artemis Pebdani (Artemis).
â€œThe Nightman Comethâ€ is a live stage adaptation of a fan favorite episode from season four in which Charlie writes a rock opera to woo his longtime obsession, The Waitress. The stage show originally premiered at the Troubadour in Los Angeles last spring and, based on the success and fan buzz generated by the musical, producers decided to bring the live show to six major US cities including Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles (a full list of cities and dates is included below).
