Based on 2 very true stories, Andrew Barret Cox's immersive musical CLUBLAND bridges today with the downtown NYC Club scene of the early 90s at the pinacle of other worldly nightclub culture. As we follow a group of new age clubkids down the rabbit hole, we are led through a dark history and learn that history has a funny way of repeating itself. CLUBLAND premiered at the American Repertory Theatre's Club Oberon in 2013.
Witches. Cults. End of Days. Bad Ass Chicks. Rock Music. An all female cast joins hands as a coven in HEXED: A FEMME ROCK MUSICAL. The high octane score infuses rock, metal, emo, punk, grunge and pop to make you wish you never let your angsty middle school years behind you. HEXED: A FEMME ROCK MUSICAL premiered as Pentagirls: A Femme Rock Musical as a live televised musical broadcasted by Emerson College. Most recently, a concert version of the show was performed at Feinstein's/54 Below in New York City and included a star studded cast including Natalie Weiss (Wicked, Everyday Rapture), Julia Mattison (Godspell), Lauren Chapman (Kinky Boots), Kelly McIntyre (A Night With Janice Joplin), and more.
In May of 1895 poet and celebrity Oscar Wilde was convicted of gross indecency and sentenced to two years hard labor. The career, persona, and world Wilde created for himself shattered in an explosion of public scandal and intimate anguish. In his love-torn fall, Oscar was neither the first nor the last.
Journeying from pop party to abstract performance, OSCAR at The Crown and the love that dare not speak its name offers a glimpse into the mind of the man behind the reputation, ultimately breaking apart the distinctions between performer, character, and inspiration. OSCAR… premiered at OBERON in April 2015, as a new venture into collaboration between the American Repertory Theater and curricular art-making at Harvard.

Pokemon: The 90's Rock Show
Pokemon: The 90's Rock Show
Book/ Music/ Lyrics Andrew Barret Cox
Our main characters Sean and Laura, a brother and sister leaving for college, stumble across their old 90’s memorabilia in their attic, only to accidentally activate an ancient device that begins to merge the worlds of reality and fiction. As Pokémon characters fill our world and become more corrupted and human, it is up to our heroes to save both dimensions from the end of the universe! On their way, they run into crazy obstacles and hilarious happenings that will hopefully have you holding your kidneys for dear LIFE!
“Pokémon: The 90’s Rock Show” isn’t all about swearing, vagina jokes, random outbursts and rock music, however. Beneath it all, many important themes arise from the humor. As the Pokémon are humorously attacked by the Clestforo Baptist Church (Westboro Baptist Church’s Un-Lawsuit Equivalent), things begin to hit home as they start to pick on James, a member of Team Rocket. We are reminded how insane this world can be, and how unjust and unequal the world still truly is. At the end of the show, we are reminded to be ourselves and never let go of our childhood and sense of youth. Although the show is written for children of the 90’s and late 80’s, everyone can enjoy its music, dance, humor, and hopefully its messages.
This Fan Musical is produced and performed soley for the personal, non- commercial enjoyment of ourselves and other Pokemon fans. It is in no way sponsored, approved, endorsed or affiliated with Ninteno or Satoshi Tajiri.
“Pokémon: The 90’s Rock Show” had a staged reading at Carnegie Mellon, Emerson College, and selections were performed at the first installment of the ABC Concert Series.
