ABOUT THE SHOW
PARENTAL GUIDANCE DISCLAIMER: This production includes adult language and situations. In this neon-coated, campy tribute to the 80s, pretty-boy Jessie Blade leaves his small Minnesota home for the bright lights of the city that never sleeps (…with the same person twice) only to get mixed-up in a labyrinth of plot twists, drag queens, sex, drugs, and open dance calls!
ABOUT interACT THEATRE PRODUCTIONS ON THE RUN
interACT was the theatre in residence at The Baird Cultural Arts Center in South Orange, NJ. In 2019, the entire Baird building is closing for extensive renovations leaving us looking for a new home. During our search, we are proud to have the support of South Orange Middle School, Morrow Methodist Church, and The Burgdorff Center in allowing us to perform our mainstage productions "On The Run" in their spaces. If you or anyone you know has a space that would be willing to host us for one of our productions, please contact AD Nick Clarey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This program is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts and administered by the Essex County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs.
