lulz

by Ben Wexler (music), Cory Finley (book), Mark Sonnenblick (lyrics)

A troll musical.

Lulz_no_date
In this shape-shifting concept musical about the uses and abuses of online anonymity, the endless desert plays host to a wild parade of figures from the nooks and crannies of internet.
Uninvited pizza men form a menacing barbershop quartet. A gaggle of trolls in tuxedos hold a formal message-board feast. A drug-addled hacker sings his way through a jazzy treatise on internet security.
In a series of intertwining narratives covering everything from the spread of memes to cyberbullying, the play takes a provocative look at the ways in which the internet frees us both from the shackles of identity and the strictures of accountability.
RUN TIME: 75 minutes, no intermission.
