A play by Sharon Lintz. Directed by Jonathan Warman
Featuring Jeff Berg, Tricia Beyer, Damion Lee and Ralph Pochoda.
It doesn’t matter how old you are, what sex you are, what your sexual orientation is, what color you are: every one of us has been fascinated by celebrity.
GROUPIES starts with a pop concept—celebrity obsession—then goes deep, offering surprising trips into the minds, passions, and sexuality of four very different people. Celebrity is the key into each character’s psyche: the perfect entry point to understand his or her humanity, desires, regrets, loves, loneliness.
And each character’s story comes with a twist.
Why GROUPIES? Because we like our pop culture with depth. And we love New York City. The stories contained in this massive city never cease to amaze us. Even so, we admit to forgetting at times about the wealth of human experience out there. As denizens of New York—as humans anywhere—we so often get lost in our own lives, in the chaos of life, in the anonymity of trying to get by.
