GRINDR THE OPERA to Bring Hook-Up App to the Stage This Fall

GRINDR THE OPERA to Bring Hook-Up App to the Stage This Fall

Tim Evanicki Productions will soon produce the world premiere of GRINDR The Opera, by Erik Ransom.

GRINDR The Opera puts the most notorious gay hook-up app into the exaggerated world of opera. With musical styles ranging from baroque to contemporary pop, GRINDR The Opera is a daring, humorous look at the changing landscape of gay relationships, and the greatest catalyst for the shift: GRINDR.

We meet GRINDR, a mythical siren from remote antiquity who has been awoken from her millennial slumber by technology. Her power, which is derived from human lust, is exhibited as she manipulates her gay devotees in a soaring soprano.

The five-person Orlando-based cast will premiere the show at the Footlight Theatre, located on the property of the The Parliament House Resort, the largest LGBT resort in the world, in September. The show will then move on to Empire Stage in Fort Lauderdale, then to Out Front Theatre in Atlanta. Evanicki will direct the production himself.
