The Advocate calls ELECTRICITY (by Terry Ray) “the hottest play in Palm Springs… a must see!”
SYNOPSIS: Sex, drugs and booze make up the life of Brad Burke, while ex-seminary student Gary Henderson is so closeted that he hides his sexuality behind an invented wife. This unlikely pair hook up in a motel room after their 10-year high school reunion and it’s a monumental clash of worlds that sparks an “electricity” between them that lures them back to that same motel room after each reunion for the next 3 decades.
ELECTRICITY is a very funny, sexy and surprisingly emotional journey through the immense changes that happened to the LGBTQ community between 1983 and 2013. It navigates a world where gay life was hidden in bars and sex clubs to one where equality might just be a reality–if Gary and Brad can only believe that they deserve it.
This unique, immersive theater experience begins as the audience gathers in the hotel lobby. It’s 1983 and they are given name tags and because classmates of Gary and Brad as the reunion starts. Then the audience follows the guys back to their hotel room and take a seat as the story unfolds around them.
The play has garnered rave reviews. A run in Minneapolis was named one of the top 5 Out of Town Productions of the Year along side HAMILTON. A run in Columbus was named among the top 10 performances of the year. Now ELECTRICITY is Off-Broadway bound so catch it while it’s still playing in Palm Springs!
There are adult themes and some nudity.
