Prepare your bunker, set your zombie traps, check the batteries in your radiation detector. 2012 is racing toward us, and it can mean only one thing-the end of the world! Luckily, Princeton's Famous Triangle Show is coming to the rescue with a musical-comedy Armageddon. Turns out Apocalypse can be fun, if you are well equipped with a bag full o' puns, madcap comedy, hilarious hi jinks-plus the Triangle trademark all-guy kickline! In Doomsdays of Our Lives, the brilliant music, lyrics and laughs of Princeton's best and brightest will surely prove that Triangle and 2012 are an earth-shattering combination.
