The Hippodrome Theater announces the return of The Hipp Unplugged staged reading series

Press release from the Hippodrome Theater

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Robert O’Hara’s semi-biographical subversive comedy Bootycandy exploded onto the New York theatre scene with a critically-lauded production at Playwrights Horizons. 

Sutter is on an outrageous odyssey through his childhood home, his church, dive bars, motel rooms, and even nursing homes. Playwright Robert O’Hara weaves together scenes, sermons, sketches, and daring meta-theatrics to create a kaleidoscopic portrayal of growing up gay and Black. Uproarious satire crashes headlong into the murky terrain of pain and pleasure and… Bootycandy.

“Sassy and saucy! You may never think of the words ‘booty’ and ‘candy’ the same way ever again.” – New York Post, Read More

“Funny, smutty, and enticingly subversive. A toxically satiric portrait of American life.” – Washington Post, Read More

“The punchline in O’Hara’s work? His recognition and dissection of that ill-fitting straitjacket called political correctness.” – New Yorker, Read More

Don't Miss a Post!

“Outrageous… lively… O’Hara’s play is all the more powerful for being so fearlessly unpredictable.” – Los Angeles Times, Read More
