The Nightman Cometh to a town near you!

Last season’s musical episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is making its rounds to live stages across the county beginning in New York and ending at Los Angeles’ Palladium. The episode in which goofball Charlie pens a rock opera based on his characters of “The Dayman” and “The Nightman” starring his friends has now inspired the cast of the FX network comedy to take the show on the road, performing the musical episode live.

Coinciding with the show’s fifth season premiere on Thursday September 17th, 2009, “The Nightman Cometh” will be playing at Philadelphia’s Tower Theatre. While no previews of the show have been given to the public, the episode enough is incentive enough for fans of the series to check out the musical. The prospect of hearing the show’s cast including Philadelphia native, Rob McElhenny, who plays Mac (and who is also one of the show’s creators and writers), his real-life wife and co-star Caitlyn Olson who plays Sweet Dee, and Danny DeVito among others sing such songs as “You Gotta Pay the Troll Toll” and “Day Man” and its reprise is enough to pry fans away from their television sets.

If the mood strikes, dress up for the occassion and head to the theatre as some of your favorite characters from the musical episode! Ladies can dress as Dee’s character of The Princess Waitress and wear a pink Disney Princess Aurora costume as worn by the Sleeping Beauty character. Or, get creative and check out some of DIY tutorials and learn How to Make a Nightman Costume and How to Make a Dayman costume.

Tickets go on sale at 10AM on Friday August 7th, 2009 on for all six shows. Snap ’em up for what’s sure to be a fun-filled show!
