Ace tells the story of a young asexual finding her way in a world of middle school crushes, make-out sessions, and sex on TV, with the help of her ace super powers and one confused clone. Also there's music.
I worked with playwright Beth Ann Powers to workshop and develop this new musical, a semi-biographical comedy that sought to shed light on the challenges faces by asexual youth finding their identity in an allosexual world, powered by the original songs of composer Jess Eisenberg Chamblee. Elements of audience interactivity, physical comedy, and dance came together to create a fast-paced comedy with a message.
