Based on the book "Party Monster" by James St. James, CLUBLAND dives into the extravagant lifestyle of ClubKids (ambassadors of the drug-induced dancehall culture that made headlines in the early 1990s). The events and characters of CLUBLAND mirror real-life Club Kids Michael Alig, James St. James, and the murder of Andre "Angel" Melendez.
CLUBLAND will be directed by Jacob S. Porter. The production features Costume Design by Haley Vigil, and Lighting Design by Grayson Breen.
Featuring the unique book, music and lyrics of Andrew Barret Cox, CLUBLAND is a wholly immersive experience that truly comes alive in a venue like OBERON. OBERON is the A.R.T.’s second stage, a destination for theater and nightlife on the fringe of Harvard Square. In addition to offering work from the A.R.T’s main season, OBERON is also a thriving incubator for emerging artists to imagine new projects that could only exist in this exciting club theater environment. CLUBLAND re-launched the OBERON's New Works Series and quickly became a much anticipated production.
CLUBLAND has been created with special permission by James St. James
