GRINDR: THE MUSICAl

Book & Lyrics by Kyle Wilson
Music & Lyrics by Jacob Tischler
From a concept by Bryce Cutler

Direction by Benjamin Viertel

Adam is a clean-cut young man fresh out of college and in search of satisfaction. So he logs onto Grindr, the gay geosocial network and notorious hook-up app, and finds himself falling down the rabbit hole into a world he never knew existed. Through Gospel-tinged orgies, three-way tap numbers, and vaudevillian turns about the dangers of seeing a friend's penis, Adam realizes the pleasures and pitfalls of an unending dispensary of men with the help of a heavenly chorus of Grindr boys, and learns to find satisfaction in the beautiful imperfection of love.
