SHAPESHIFTERS: A Queer Comic Book Musical
“Teenage comic book genius, Mel, has run away from home. Secretly the leader of an underground tribe of superheroes called The Shapeshifters, Mel creates impossible futures. When ancient monsters resurface, Mel must transcend body and binary to galvanize a new generation of heroes and prevent a Final Shapeshifter Extinction. A time-bending love letter to queer legacy and community, “Shapeshifters: A Queer Comic Book Musical” persists, resists, and survives our living nightmares.”
Presented at Judson Memorial Church as a part of Judson Arts Wednesdays (JAW), SHAPESHIFTERS is an exciting new musical that tackles the experience of non-binary youth in the very real oppressive environments in which they find themselves. Bridging the past, present, and future, SHAPESHIFTERS is a musical survival guide for uncertain times.
Info on Judson Arts Wednesdays:
Judson Arts Wednesdays (JAW) is the completely free, completely uncensored creative arm of Judson Memorial Church, a sacred and profane place that has nurtured artists and their work for decades. Started in the fall of 2009, just after several U.S. banks were bailed out by our Federal Government, JAW was designed to serve those in need of a human bailout, whether that be in the form of free food, free art, or just free company in a free space. 10 years later every Wednesday provides all three.
