A dark and whimsical tour-de-farce inspired equally by silent-era masters and vaudevillian peculiarity, beep boop is a twisted romp that explores our obsession with technology and our increasing loneliness in a world with so many ways to connect.
beep boop has costume design by Maddie Peterson (The Older Brother’s Almanac), lighting and projection design by Driscoll Otto (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at Drury Lane Theatre), sound design and foley by Drama Desk nominee Brendan Aanes (Balls), features foley artist Nora Kaye (Balls) and is produced by Crowded Outlet with Chad Goodridge (Passing Strange).
beep boop will be performed at 14th Street Y (344 E 14th Street, New York, NY 10003) Wednesday February 6th through Sunday, February 17th. The performance schedule is Tuesdays through Saturdays at 7:30pm with Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2pm.
