After every Thursday and Saturday performance of The Bacchae, Queens Shakespeare will be presenting a special benefit performance of Burt V. Royal’s Dog sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead. Half of all proceeds will benefit The Trevor Project, the leading national organization focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.
Co-Directors Chris Rivera (Director of 2014’s critically acclaimed Romeo & Juliet and our smash hit production of Julius Caesar earlier this season) and Bloo Rodriguez (Assistance Director of Julius Caesar and Assistant Director of The Secret Theater’s sellout production of Macbeth) take us back to a time in which millennials where called something different, high school students. A place where labels turn whole people into nothing more than their respective cliques: jock, bully, stoner, geek, and queer. Using the fashion and musical stylings of the late ‘90s/early 2000s and asking the question “what if the eternal children from the comics we read grew up?” provide the perfect vehicle for a flashback to a time where things should have been simple, but never were. A time where you were “different” in a school filled with people who all pretend to be the same.
Classics for a Cause: 50% of all proceeds for Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead will benefit The Trevor Project, the leading national organization focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning and other queer youth.
