Be Awesome: A Theatrical Mix-Tape of the 90’s
Conceived and Directed by Jason Schlafstein
Performances at The Writer’s Center
An original, devised show in the spirit of The Best of Craigslist and the Flying V Fights series, Flying V Theatres world premiere of Be Awesome: A Theatrical Mixtape of the 90s explores memory, nostalgia, transition, and that moment where you choose what to keep and what to leave behind. Through a night of live action music videos set to the soundtrack of that totally Awesome decade the 90s, this devised show takes us back to a time of flannel, slap bracelets, and Saturday morning cartoons, while asking the question of who are we now? What if you were dying and had a child on the way? What is the mixtape you would leave behind to create a connection with someone you love but will never know? How do you encapsulate your life into 12 songs?
Featuring puppetry, dance, live music, and astounding feats of physicality, this devised show takes us back to a time of flannel, slap bracelets, and Saturday morning cartoons, while asking the question of who we are now.
