Ryan Landry and his Gold Dust Orphans are back for their final run at the Ramrod Performing Arts Centre with The Ebonic Woman, which opens next month. The new musical is a blistering take on race in America and the walls we build around ourselves to keep the status quo.

Tickets for The Ebonic Woman

Be sure to get your tickets for the brief run in Boston from May 2 – 26. For those who don’t live in the area, note that the spring productions typically return and run through the summer in Provincetown so like the Gold Dust Orphan Facebook page to stay up to date on details about this must see musical here in Boston and later this summer in Ptown.

Ryan Landry and The Gold Dust Orphans may have a new theater

As I alluded to in my post last week, Development plans to replace Boston’s Ramrod Machine will include a LGBTQ theaterthe developers (SCAPE) are working with Ryan Landry and his Gold Dust Orphans to ensure that once Machine / Ramrod closes there remains theater space so this troupe of misfits can “continue their important and educational work”. Isn’t that how Ryan describes their work?

Show your support for the Orphans by coming to this public hearing

Before that can happen, much needs to be done but the first hurdle is making sure that the public supports this project and the addition of the theater. To that end, Ryan and the Orphans ask you to show up for the first public meeting to voice your support of the new theater. Drinks will be provided after the public meeting at where else but Machine. The public meeting is at 6PM on Monday, April 22nd – details about the location are shared below.

Gold Dust Orphans present: GREECE May 4 – June 4, 2017

Two weeks from today is opening night for the Gold Dust Orphans latest show, Greece: A High School Musical.

Ryan Landry’s crazy creativity has combined one of America’s most recognizable and favorite musicals Grease with togas and titans. The mash up of a story line features the daughter of Zeus obsessing over the lives of mortals. When Zeus finds out he decides to send her to a public school to teach her a lesson, but no sooner does she arrive on Earth when she meets a gorgeous Trojan and all Hades breaks loose. Get your tickets while they last.

Greece – A High School Musical

Ryan Landry, Boston Fringe TheaterRyan Landry and his Gold Dust Orphans have already announced their Spring show in Boston will be Greece: A High School Musical.

The website promises chariot races, vengeful gods and plenty of teenage angst as well as a stellar cast of Grecian Greasers ready to dance and slay you with laughter. What happens when Zeus’ only daughter is caught obsessing on the petty goings on of mere mortals? He sends her to a public school. No sooner does she arrive on Earth when she meets a gorgeous Trojan and all Hades breaks loose. Add a tangled web of love stories that rivals A Midsummer Nights Dream and you get the picture.

While the Gold Dust Orphan’s spring production won’t open until early May, tickets are now available for sale.

Get your tickets to the Gold Dust Orphans, Murder on the Polar Express

Gold Dust Orphans, Boston Fringe TheaterLast month I wrote that Ryan Landry and his Gold Dust Orphans holiday theater show would be Murder on the Polar Express.

The show which steals plot lines from Agatha Christie mysteries centers around “The World’s Foremost Drag Detective” Shirley Holmes, (played by Ryan Landry) as she boards the world’s most elegant train along with her sidekick Dr. Jody Watley and ten other unsavory characters, all en route to the North Pole for a much needed Christmas vacation. Unbeknownst to them there is a psycho killer onboard. What could possibly go wrong?

The Gold Dust Orphan’s holiday musical always sells out quickly so I’m giving the show a plug now that tickets are available to encourage you to make plans and reserve your tickets ahead of time. Murder on the Polar Express runs from Thursday, December 1 – Wednesday, December 21.
