FORNICATED FROM THE BEATLES is a love song to American Pop. A performance of simultaneous surround-sound stories, a rousing dance party, and a look into the lives of 10 music fans - - all from the generation after the generation that fell into bed to the songs of  John, Paul, George, and Ringo, a generation searching for its own undeniable song. As a new band at each performance sets up, you receive personal texts that grant you backstage access to each character's private revelations and you follow a series of live scenes. But with the first strum of the guitar, you, the fans, and the band come together.

The World Premiere at American Repertory Theater is heading to Boston this May and we need your donations so we can - rock with you - all night long...

Every little bit helps:

We are bringing 17 ARTISTS (!) from NYC to Boston via bus and car. Your donations will help cover our gas costs and bus tickets.

Besides the performers and travel, this show is all about sound! There is so much sound in the show: a full band and the performers. If you wanna hear it - we have to have the equipment.

We are bringing in favorite Boston band, The Everday Visuals, for our Boston premiere and New York band the Majorleans for our New York premiere.

And of course, once the fun at A.R.T. has subsided, we need to make our way back to NYC to prepare ourselves for the New York premiere - more gas and bus tickets are required for the return trip!

With a few days rest, we do it all again in New York with the help of your generous donations.
