Itʼs the way far distant future, AD 2010, and itʼs a bad time to be human. Lonely human freedom fighter Kate Brick plans a last stand against the oppressive Artas, artificial life forms who control humankind through torture, brainwashing, and Foursquare. But judging by the apathy of her lover Dehnise Compuserve and of her fellow humans, it may be too late. 2010 is a synthpop-infused, queer-friendly musical comedy homage to the great dystopian classics of the 1980s and ’90s. Playwright Carl Danielson brilliantly riffs on classics like Blade Runner, Max Headroom, The Matrix, and Snow Crash. Meanwhile, local songwriter/audio producer Andy Hicks (of The Pluto Tapes) provides delightfully twisted tunes like “Near Futuristic Dystopia!” and “Bangor Boogie.  2010 has been performing to large, screaming crowds in the Boston area for the past two years. The
show has graced diverse stages: the Boston Playwrights Theatre in August 2010, the 2011 Arisia Sci-Fi Convention at the Boston Westin Waterfront, Harvard Squareʼs esteemed Club Oberon, and ImprovBostonʼs long-running Geek Week festival. This talented ensemble, led by Massachusetts-based Kamela Dolinova and Providence-based Emily Taradash, will now be blowing the minds off of audiences across the Northeast.

2010 features Kamela Dolinova, Emily Taradash, Julia Lunetta, Timothy Hoover, John Deschene, Kay Coughlin, Katie Drexel, Ginger Lazarus, and Brad Smith. Music and lyrics by Andy Hicks. Book by Carl Danielson. Choreography by Alex Nemiroski and Andy Hicks.
