New York City
The Boomerang Kid is a fully-interactive, audience-directed comedy in which the audience controls the fate of the main character, who is trying desperately to make it in life on his own without the assistance of his parents. Throughout the night, audience members will be asked to make a choice on his behalf, using touch-screen, wireless PDAs to cast their votes. They’ll go through the play twice, once in the first act and once again after intermission, and experience two completely different plays. Make one decision and watch him claw his way up the corporate ladder; make another, and see him locked up in a mental institution or lost in the jungle of Mexico. With over 50 possible combinations scripted by creator Chris Econn, it’s a different play every night – and two different plays in a single performance.
Final performance: December 17, 2023
