OSCAR at The Crown, a new immersive club musical, celebrated the official opening of its open-ended return engagement May 30. The show, hailing from queer theatre collective The Neon Coven, is back at 3 Dollar Bill after a three-week limited engagement at the Brooklyn venue earlier this year.
The show transports audiences to a secret bunker in a dystopian future, in which queer castaways seek refuge from a fascist regime. The group feasts on the limited culture available to them, including the complete works of Oscar Wilde and The Real Housewives. Creator Mark Mauriello stars in the title role, with fellow Neon Coven members Shira Milikowsky and Andrew Barret Cox serving as director and composer-choreographer, respectively.
