The Bad Years - 2016 - Off-Broadway

Lines are blurred as the audience enters a decaying suburban house, crashing the party. EDM earworms fold seamlessly into acoustic anthems, spilling from room to room, and pulling the guests into a world of bacchanalian revelry.

Broadway storytelling meets immersive spectacle in the workshop of the innovative house party musical THE BAD YEARS by Kerrigan & Lowdermilk. THE BAD YEARS returns to Brooklyn after a sold-out 2015 run at Loft 172. The new workshop, directed by Stephen Brackett (Buyer and Cellar) and choreographed by Jennifer Jancuska (BC Beat), follows sixteen twenty-somethings as they flirt, fight, and flip cup their way into adulthood.

Schedule

1218 Flushing Avenue
