Reagan Esther Myer is a feature-length multimedia rock opera that uses live music, video, and theatrical performance to introduce us to the protagonist of the ThotBot storyworld. It’s not your typical glitched out one-woman dystopian extravaganza full of beautiful electro-pop music, VHS-fueled video spectacle, and terrors born of our social and political zeitgeist. 

The initial concept, devised during the 2016 Presidential Primaries, imagined a world in which Trump won (ha-ha! at the time seemed impossible), and subsequently everything awful about our society was blown out to the Nth degree: climate change, racism, misogyny, class disparity, etc. Then I threw it all back into 1995 and added an apocalyptic event, a totalitarian regime, and a brain implant. 

Reagan Esther Myer was workshopped in January 2018 and premiered with a four night run at the Center for the Arts at the Armory in Somerville, MA, on June 27-30, 2019.
