“It’s late-night theater, à la Charles Busch meets theater of the absurd meets a nightclub,” explains Matthew R. Kerns, creator of Gay Fantasia. Kerns relates the theater-goer’s experience with this play to that of audiences of Sleep No More, an immersive, site-specific work in New York. “I’m trying to play with this new style of theater that says you don’t have to sit in a seat for two hours anymore; you can get up and play with the cast and be a part of the event.”
Gay Fantasia starts at 11 p.m. tonight and tomorrow night at the Nalanda Studio Theatre, 6287 Arapahoe Avenue in Boulder. Tickets are $7 general admission, free for seniors and Naropa University students and staff. Selected panels from the Names Project-AIDS Memorial Quilt will be on display at the theater through April 19.
