[Broadway on Demand
:: 8/27] Not sure how this didn’t make my radar sooner but I’m just hearing about Burning Man: The Musical
. YES, It’s real! It’s described as a “musical comedy about techies vs. hippies at Burning Man.” Oakland Magazine ran an interview
with its creator, Matt Werner, who says the “idea for a musical came about because Burning Man is a very musical and larger-than-life event. It’s played out on a seemingly infinite stage, and a lightbulb went off about creating an immersive theater piece set at Burning Man. Everyone is a participant at Burning Man.” Well, there ya go
. It premieres Friday on Broadway on Demand.
[Bidding opens 9/30] Boundless Space… The Possibilities of Burning Man is an online Sotheby’s auction that offers “an eclectic, genre-defying selection of artworks, collectibles, mutant vehicles, NFTs, and experiences from artists and creators within and adjacent to the Burning Man community.” Update: My art for this has been sent to Sotheby’s in NYC, hope to be able to share more soon.
[Vimeo] Weirdo Night, “a stand in for the eponymous, wildly popular underground club night in Los Angeles. Hosted and curated by Dynasty Handbag, the show assembles misfits from the comedy world, live bands, dancers and performance artists in a variety show that goes regularly and intentionally off the rails.”
