Firesign Theater Reignites For 40th Birthday

During the mid-1960s, The Firesign Theatre started on radio in Los Angeles and produced a series of records that became cult classics — with detective "Nick Danger: Third Eye" becoming one of their most famous characters. Now the troupe reunites to celebrate Danger's 40th birthday, in a 4-day special performance in Hollywood called, "Forward, Into the Past."
