Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Star Trek, Drizzit, Zelda, Dr. Who, Buffy, Firefly, X-Men… know these names? Then you might just get Nerd Anarchy.
Playwright, composer and their stage manager come together, without the “assistance” of actors, to pitch their exciting new musical to the audience. They beg you to use your imagination to “see” a city street drizzling rain, as the stage manger becomes Becky, the newbie-roommate and gets introduced to the would-be cast of 4 nerds, played by the playwright and musician, who meet weekly to play Faerie Land Frolic, a role playing dice board game like D&D. We get to know the ins and outs of nerdom and geekiness with songs like: This is How We Roll and I Wanna F*k A Unicorn (but not in a weird way) as well as the lives and interests of the group. They break up, make up, pout, scream and have a blast…when suddenly they roll badly and a portal opens up in the living room! They are swept away to Faerie Land for real! Where we hear such awesome songs as Why Dost I Speak so Stupideth? Meanwhile an evil sorcerer is planning on destroying Earth! Will humanity be turned into action figures? Can our heroes storm his castle and sneak past dragons? Can they level up fast enough to be defeat an army of Orcs? Will nerds win the day?
