paper chairs presents Boom For Real
Museum of Human Achievement
Austin, TX
Share this event:

paper chairs enthusiastically announces the premiere production of Boom for Real,
a new work by Austin playwright Jason Tremblay.

When the world's greatest dancer is ghoulishly disfigured in a fire, she trades her heart to regain her physical beauty. But this shady deal robs her of her greatest gift: her ability to dance. So she sets a curse on the rest of the world, abolishing all dancing forever.  Time passes and bleakness grows beneath a grey sky raining ash until a young spritely seamstress, Boom, unearths secrets to the past. Smoking rats in sewers, a seedy theatre with talking walls, and ghosts lurking in the mirror send Boom on a journey to lift the curse. What happens when the world is free to dance again?  Just outside the spotlight, lies the dark side to ambition and the price we pay when following our hearts.
