What better way to start out in a new location than to have the first show authored by the namesake for one of The Overtime’s Theaters? In appreciation of his generous donation, the larger theater inside The Overtime will be named the Gregg Barrios Theater.
In this world premiere play, Gregg Barrios takes us on a journey of one man who searches for validation as a Chicano and as a Dance Club DJ. Both coincide with his coming out.
I-DJ received an earlier, successful reading commissioned by Sandra Cisneros’ Macondo Foundation. In part a one man show, the piece also features dancers, music through the decades of A&M Records, a live DJ, video projections, and a set designed by local graffiti artist Supher.
Alternately hilarious, devastating, and uplifting, this show is the perfect opening for the new Gregg Barrios Theater at the Overtime.
Join us for the Grand Opening Gala for the new Overtime Theater: July 13th at 6pm. Stay for Gregg Barrios’ I-DJ! There will be food, drinks, and much merrymaking.
