Based on the book "Party Monster" by James St. James, CLUBLAND dives into the extravagant lifestyle of ClubKids (ambassadors of the drug-induced dancehall culture that made headlines in the early 1990s). The events and characters of CLUBLAND mirror real-life Club Kids Michael Alig, James St. James, and the murder of Andre "Angel" Melendez. Featuring the unique book, music and lyrics of Andrew Barret Cox, CLUBLAND is a wholly immersive experience that truly comes alive in a venue like Oberon. Oberon is the A.R.T.'s second stage, a destination for theater and nightlife on the fringe of Harvard Square. In addition to offering work from the A.R.T's main season, Oberon is also a thriving incubator for emerging artists to imagine new projects that could only exist in this exciting club theater environment. CLUBLAND re-launched the Oberon's New Works Series and quickly became a much anticipated production.
