I’m very proud to present a new musical that I’ve written with Darryl Stephens and Kurtis Simmons called Hipster Sweatshop:
When super-stylish Siri, heir to the Melon real estate empire, inherits a commercial property in Downtown LA, she is expected to evict the current tenants to prepare for renovations and ultimately, gentrification. However, she is compelled to rethink that plan when she visits the space and is charmed by the staff of millennial tastemakers selling and making high-end jewelry for Parker, the fame-obsessed, ego-maniacal shop-owner. Falling hard for Jesus, the shop’s sexy FedEx guy, and bonding with her new co-workers further weakens Siri’s resolve to kibosh the spot. A reality TV show, some drug experimentation, a little class warfare, delicious vegan donuts, and a few syncopated hand claps all come into play as the fate of the PRKR Jewelry Boutique unfolds… in SONG!
