BLACKBOX PLAYLIST: PRIDE EDITION - Hosted by Dan Savage!
Hot Metal Arts Collective presents...

BLACKBOX PLAYLIST: Pride Edition!
Hosted by Dan Savage (host/writer of SAVAGE LOVE, co-founder of IT GETS BETTER)

We're back, and this time we're celebrating NYC Pride by featuring all LGBTQ+ writers and performers. We are proud to be partnered with the Peoples Improv Theater and the It Gets Better Project for this performance! All proceeds will benefit It Gets Better, which provides inspiration and support for LGBTQ+ youth.

BLACKBOX PLAYLIST is a fun and eclectic anonymous theater project featuring 16 actors performing 8 shorts plays inspired by 1 badass music playlist. Here's how it works:

Dan Savage picked 8 of his favorite songs, and we 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 word-for-word, and show up to the performance.

That's when the real fun starts...

ON SUNDAY, JUNE 24TH AT 6:00PM, the actors will show up to the Peoples Improv Theater and sit in the audience. At the beginning of each scene, the song that inspired it will begin playing, and the two actors - who have NEVER met - have the length of the song to set up the stage, discuss the play, practice, prepare, etc.

But once the song finishes - whether they're ready or not - the lights dim and the show begins!
