On Friday, January 18th, the immersive queer nightclub musical OSCAR at the Crown will open at 3 Dollar Bill, presented by The Neon Coven. Celebrating the rise and fall of one of history's most flamboyant characters, OSCAR at the Crown brings the audience to a secret bunker far in the fascist future, comprised of sequins, reality television, and the complete works of Oscar Wilde: not much else has survived. And it goes without saying that it's also about the Real Housewives and a minor character from that show The O.C. \_( )_/ And yes, it's ALSO about all of us here today: staring at our phones, wondering if our latest Instagram post is going to flop and if the bombs have started flying yet. See you on the dance floor! Wear something cool! Tickets are $19 until December 23rd and $25 starting December 24th - available here: www.theneoncoven.com/oscar (more...)
