ALL PROCEEDS BENEFITING IT GETS BETTER!
PLAYLIST SELECTED BY DAN SAVAGE
HOSTED BY DAN SAVAGE
BLACKBOX PLAYLIST is a fun and eclectic anonymous theater project featuring 16 actors performing 8 shorts plays inspired by 1 badass music playlist. We picked 8 of our favorite songs and asked 8 different writers to write 8 short plays based on those songs. Then, we found 16 actors, cast them, and asked them to memorize their lines. However, we did NOT tell them who their scene partners were or arrange any rehearsals. We simply told them to memorize the script and show up to the performance.
That's when the real fun starts...
On Sunday, June 24th at 6:00 PM, the actors will show up to The PIT and sit in the audience. At the beginning of each scene, the song that inspired it will play, and the two actors - who have NEVER met - have the length of the song to set up the stage, discuss the play, and prepare. But once the song finishes - whether they're ready or not - the lights dim and the show begins! Join us at The Peoples Improv Theater in Manhattan for a night of unforgettable theater. Due to the nature of this production, BLACKBOX PLAYLIST is ONE NIGHT ONLY.
