Boom, Headshot! A Geek Tragedy Book and lyrics by Scout Storey Music by Nick Morgan Direction by Jared Pixler A guild of close-knit, basement-dwelling MMORPG players takes on the apocalypse from the ephemeral safety of their avatars in “Boom, Headshot! A Geek Tragedy”—a rockin’ ode to gaming, online friendships, and acceptance told through song and synthpop… all with a side of pizza puffs. Mark, the team’s Headshooter and a recently transitioned young man, is beset with a quest for acceptance; Stan, GuildMaster, proves his might while wishing his life looked more like a video game; Clarisse, the Fighter, is finding her true self while kicking some serious a**; and Gladys, the Healer, is just trying to make everyone happy. Enter Henry, Mark’s Marine big brother whose very presence throws Mark and Stan into a heteronormative spiral, despite Henry’s best efforts to connect with his younger brother. This gaming-meets-musical theater extravaganza is tragic and bonkers—uniting everyone through heart-breaking and flesh-eating obstacles as the rules of the game slowly erode.
