by David James Parr, directed by Adam Odsess-Rubin
Boundless Theater (A Stage Without Borders) proudly presents Slap&Tickle: an immersive theatrical experience @ The Eagle NYC by David James Parr, directed by Adam Odsess-Rubin (Artistic Director of the National Queer Theater). The show is in partnership with GMHC, the world’s first HIV/AIDS service organization. * Boundless Theater will donate $5 from every ticket sale to GMHC.
About the Show:
This landmark theatrical experience—think Sleep No More meets The Boys in the Band—is a thought-provoking, comedic & sensual exploration of how politics, drugs, HIV and social media dramatically changed the landscape for a generation of LGBTQ+ people in America who came of age in the wake of AIDS but on the cusp of GRINDR. The collective narrative is told by a spectrum of intersecting characters in the shadowy setting of a fictional NYC bathhouse.
Lara Americo, Juan Danner, Robert Driemeyer, Abdu Garmazi, James A. Pierce III, Chetan Rao and Matthew James Tyler.
*A Way to Give Back to Our LGBTQIA+ Community:
With Slap&Tickle we aim to share and support GMHC's mission to end the AIDS epidemic and uplift the lives of all affected, while also raising awareness around the topics of hate crimes and legislation against the LGBTQIA+ community. In addition to donating a percentage of our ticket sales to the organization, we are also inviting GMHC's representatives to our shows to speak with our audience about their goal and mission and the provide ongoing services to the community.

ABOUT STRANGER INTERLUDES
Stranger Interludes is a contemporary dark comedy which examines issues of gender inclusivity, drug addiction, and mental health within the delicate balance of a family beset by dysfunction, upset by a series of revelations, and reset by the fateful intersection with two strangers. Borne from EVIE, a much-married would-be stage actress recently diagnosed with early dementia, and an absent father, three siblings (JESSICA, JAMIE and JAKEY) are fused by their troubled familial roots and their own secret language, wielding their secrets like weapons, using their neuroses as armor, and striving for a deeper connection which only arrives through their brush with two strangers: AUSTIN, a mutable drifter with a secret past and CHANCE, the mysterious young man whom their mother has employed to write her dubious memoirs.
BROADWAY BARFLY WITH ROBERT DRIEMEYER
Actor, comedian and content creator Robert Driemeyer transports newfound audiences through old-school New York nightlife with his sparkling nightclub act Broadway Barfly, inspired by his YouTube channel. With a dash of wit and a twist of verve, he stirs up spirited songs and amusing anecdotes exploring the origins of classic cocktails and their connection to the Great White Way. During the show, the audience is treated to a tasting flight of tantalizing and heady concoctions. The intoxicating blend of music and mixology makes for a unique and zesty evening of elegant entertainment!

“It is with great pride that I’ve joined Boundless Theater as one of their ambassadors. When I was first told of their inclusive mission and goals, of supporting new works and new artists of every origin, race, and gender, it reminded me of why I entered the Industry in the first place, and why the role of an actor is important to give voice to all different kinds of narratives and artistic expression. Let’s break down borders, and engage with our communities to bring about these boundless opportunities” - Jenn Colella
