Wild project will present the World Premiere of G, a new operetta created, composed, and starring Mur, a nonbinary artist who has caught the eye of everyone from Cindy Sherman to Lena Dunham.

G is an autobiographical operetta about an artist's journey through a dark and comedic fever-dream following a drug-facilitated assault (gamma-hydroxybutyrate, known as 'GHB' or simply 'G') at a gay bar in Hell's Kitchen. In the "fever dream," the artist meets and encounters a wide range of queer characters who appear as teachers or prophets that hold the ancient wisdom of self-love, weaving together lessons from Dr. Maya Angelou, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Greek Mythology, Deepak Chopra, and Eckhart Tolle. G is a love letter to the "G" in LGBTQIA+; promoting self-love while advocating against violence within the gay community.

"There are so many tribes of gay in New York City; the Bushwick gays, the uptown gays, the Julius gays, the sex party gays, the Broadway gays, the TED gays, the poly gays, the bator gays, the fire island gays, the billionaire gays, the Drag Race gays... it can sometimes feel like West Side Story; the jets vs. the sharks. Creating deeper love for our 'G' community is more important than ever. We all need to come together. You know what I mean?" says Mur with a wink.

Directed by Stephen Winter, G includes original visual collaborations with Victor Jeffreys II. The cast features Jade Amber, Jack Fuller, Aisha Kerensa, Malcolm Durning, Robert Quiles, Matthew Nasser, and Mur.

G runs July 19 & 20 at 8pm and July 21 at 3pm. Wild project is located at 195 E. 3rd Street, between Avenues A & B. Running time is 50 minutes. Tickets are $35 and are available by calling the wild project box office at 212-228-1195 or by visiting
