GRINDR THE OPERA
An Unauthorized Parody

9:30pm / Tickets begin at $15

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.


Though the opera lives in the world of parody, it touches on some very serious, hot-button issues that exist in the gay community as it transitions into a time of wider acceptance and easy access to opportunities of both romance and lust to be sated.

The Iconoclast Theatre Collective was created in 2020 as a call to creative arms, a genre-defying bolt of lightning in the dark. We use theatricalized musical storytelling on and off the stage, breaking barriers and exploring new mediums in order to foster community and generate timely, resonant work. The founding members are Rachel Klein (Off Broadway Direction: Red Roses, Green Gold; Around the World in 80 Days) Andy Peterson (Broadway's Tootsie) and Erik Ransom (recipient of the 2019 Offie award for Best New Musical.) Recent ITC projects include The Songs of Fiveboro live at Green Room 42 and the twelve episode hit musical audio series epic, The World to Come, which is available wherever podcasts can be found.

TOSOS Mission Statement: As NYC's oldest and longest-producing LGBTQIA+ theater company, The Other Side of Silence (TOSOS) is dedicated to an honest and open exploration of the life experience and cultural sensibility of the LGBTQIA+ community in the present day and to preserving and promoting our literary past in a determined effort to keep our theatrical heritage alive.
