Boomerang Theatre Company will present a one night only streaming presentation of BEFORE AFTER OR WHATEVER, a new comedy written by Carl Holder and directed by Johnny G. Lloyd.

BEFORE AFTER OR WHATEVER performs live for one night only, with playback for 48 hours after the curtain time. Tickets are available for $10 at

In BEFORE AFTER OR WHATEVER, the frequent shootings and head explosions of ordinary life now lead many people to take matters into their own hands, and today Ahed finally gets obliterated into nothing. If the wait ever ends...Sign in, hand over your belongings, and you too can let go of everything you ever thought mattered.

The presentation stars Renata Friedman, LaToya Lewis, Jarvis D. Matthews, Cristina Pitter (Netflix's Bonding), Jon Norman Schneider (Mike Lew's Tiger Style! at Huntington Theatre), and Danielle Skraastad (Paris at The Atlantic Theater).
