Enter, Stage Write

If you’re in the audience for Gay Fantasia, you have two choices: experience it as a viewer or as part of the show. Either way, the original, interactive theater experience will take you through Harvey Milk’s last days and on through the start of the HIV/AIDS crisis.

“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. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 303-245-4798 or e-mail
