What's on at the Wild Project
On Now:

Now – August 18
SHEnanigans written and performed by Helena D. Lewis, directed by Rome Neal
Part of The Wild Project’s Wild Culture Program
Schedule: Thursday – Saturday at 7pm; Sunday at 3pm
Tickets: $20

SHEnanigans, a comedic and sometimes heart-wrenching autobiographical one-woman play, unfolds after her mother’s unexpected death, as a devoted daughter struggles to adjust to her newfound matriarchal duties. SHEnanigans is an intimate, dramatic, and humorous look at love, family, and life from a “menopause baby,” who embraces her inherent dysfunction to care for her eccentric 82-year-old father and the affable family dog.



August 13
Linda Simpson’s Slideshow Extravaganza! The Drag Explosion
Schedule: Tuesday at 8pm
Tickets: $10

Linda Simpson, a shining star of NYC’s drag scene for almost 30 years, is thrilled be back at The Wild Project with an encore presentation of her-storical slideshow The Drag Explosion

All of the photos in The Drag Explosion were shot by Linda from the late 1980s to the mid ‘90s (back when it was rare to hobnob with a camera), and they reveal a golden age of NYC drag history. During this era the drag scene remarkably transformed from an underground art form into a pop-culture phenomenon. The photos capture wild nightlife, queer activism, and all sorts of colorful characters as they joyfully pushed the boundaries of gender expression. It’s an educational and entertaining her-story lesson! This new presentation comes as Linda is featured in the new HBO documentary, “Wig,” about the legendary drag festival Wigstock (which is also profiled in The Drag Explosion).

Sean Hagerty, soundtracks and song: the music of Third Rail Projects

With Mur, Star Amerasu, Aisha Carpenter, Temple Hammen, Sarah Stewart Chapin, Ryan Frostig, David Nagy
Sponsored by Susan Alexander
*Tickets for this performance are $25
In the age of “Ghosting” Culture, REQUIEM is a thirty-minute musical repose for the souls of the living dead. One day you’re lying in bed talking about a future, the next day you’re blocked on social media and being ignored over text. Over 80% of Millenials have admitted to being ghosted; a digital and disturbing death. This funeral is for them.
REQUIEM features a new original score by MUR that follows the Kübler-Ross model of grief, taking you on a musical journey from denial to acceptance to get the closure you deserve. A Dramedy.
