The Big Bad Funtime Bash: Five Years of LRS

It’s that time of year again: days are getting shorter and colder, but it’s warm and bright inside the annual LRS party!

This year the party, The Big Bad Funtime Bash, celebrates our fifth anniversary. Five years of making provocative, incendiary original performance in Philadelphia. This party will celebrate our trickster spirit by indulging all things bad. Let yourself be a little naughty this year and join us on Monday, December 11th from 6-9pm at the Maas Building. 

Details and tickets: Click here!

Featuring performances by Salty Brine, Isaac Oliver, Jess Conda, and the cast of “Unformed Consent.” Plus Magic Mike bartenders, deviant spiritual guides, prizes from Groundswell Greetings, KG Strong, Good King Tavern, and more. Live auction prizes include roundtrip train fare to New York City to enjoy dinner at Morimoto before seeing “The Lucky Ones” produced by Ars Nova.

All funds raised at the Big Bad Funtime Bash will support our continued development on “Unformed Consent.” Help us continue to make this timely, socially important work!

We’ll see you there!

A Lacerating Comedy

Do you have your tickets for “Underground Railroad Game” yet? Buy them HERE and buy them now.

Jenn and Scott’s incendiary piece just received its first RAVE review (though we are sure it won’t be its last). Ben Brantley says the show “manages to be, in the year 2016, shocking in ways that “Dutchman,”LeRoi Jones’s surreal 1964 play about a black man’s encounter with a white woman on a subway, must have been 50-some years ago.”

If you think you’ve seen this piece before, think again.

UNDERGROUND RAILROAD GAME makes its NYC premiere next month!

Jenn and Scott, along with director Taibi Magar, have been working tirelessly to push the limits of this provocative show for its New York premiere. In addition to an entirely new staging for the Ars Nova space, be prepared for new scenes, and a more in-depth exhibition of the antebellum slave doll on loan from Theaster Gates and the ReBuild Foundation.

We are beyond excited for URG to be presented at Ars Nova, the alma mater of “Natasha and Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812” which has its Broadway opening soon, and artists like Lin-Manuel Miranda. They are a passionate and dedicated company… not to mention wicked good at corn hole.

Ars Nova is a 99-seat theatre and we have a limited, four-week run so don’t wait around another minute to get your tickets. Some performances are already sold out (SERIOUSLY!!). The show runs nightly September 13-October 15th except for Sundays.

Tickets to performances at Ars Nova are $35 but there are discounts codes available if you’re buying early. Week one tickets can be purchased for $15 using the code “GOHAWKS” and week two tickets are $25 with the code “SLURPEE”.
