COLUMBUS -- The award-winning TV comedy “Mystery Science Theater 3000” (MST3K) is coming to Columbus with an all-new, live show featuring Joel Hodgson, the original host and creative vision behind the beloved TV and Netflix comedy series for more than three decades, in his final live tour.

Produced by Alternaversal LLC, Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live: The Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour will feature the never-before-screened film No Retreat, No Surrender. 

CAPA presents Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live: The Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour at the Davidson Theatre (77 S. High St.) on Sunday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $35-$55 and can be purchased in-person at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E. State St.), online at www.capa.com, or by phone at 614-469-0939 or 1-800-982-2787.

Following the wildly successful Watch Out for Snakes! Tour in 2017 and 30th anniversary Tour in 2018, Hodgson will don the red jumpsuit one final time to host Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live: The Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour alongside the world’s greatest (and only) movie-riffing robots—Tom Servo, Crow, and Gypsy.

The show gives fans the chance to sit in the same theater with their favorite characters and experience all the MST3K signatures and rapid-fire hilarity that have built MST3K’s loyal following over more than 30 years—a cheesy B-movie, hilarious riffing, wisecracking robots, silly sketches, and Hodgson in the red jumpsuit as host Joel Robinson.

“This is our third national tour, and it’s bigger than the first two combined!” said Hodgson. “I really wanted to do something special since it’s my farewell tour with MST3K Live. Also, Tom, Crow, and Gypsy have become such great live performers, I decided to give them the ultimate challenge—a movie-riffing robot circus.”
