Important Seating Map Notice for This Show:
Due to the immersive and environmental nature of this new musical, the tables will be in a unique configuration that is not represented on our typical seating map. However, every seat in the space will have close proximity to the performers.
MATURE LANGUAGE: This world premiere musical includes some mature and colorful language, much like Ben Folds’ lyrics and the real world.
Underground is the most distinct pivot in a season of stylized comedies. This immersive, world premiere musical is based entirely on the discography of Ben Folds – blending flashbacks, dance, and complex harmonies to illuminate the histories and inner lives of the regulars down at your local pub. Audiences will enter Coronado Playhouse and be transported to their favorite dive bar, where former bandmates will reunite, exes will collide, and secrets will be revealed as patrons get a glimpse of the hope and heartbreak concealed in plain sight within the strangers next to us. Part theatre, part concert, and part drinking game, this modern parable is a celebration of community and resilience as we “learn to live with what we are.”
Blindspot Collective develops transformative theatre that amplifies marginalized voices, illuminates untold stories, bridges disparate experiences, and energizes vulnerable communities. They produce radically inclusive programming at the intersection of advocacy, education, and entertainment that cultivates and celebrates new work, emerging artists, diverse audiences, and fresh ideas.
This production continues the company’s history of groundbreaking site-specific and immersive performances like Hall Pass and Black Séance, which were presented in partnership with La Jolla Playhouse.
