FUTURE SEX INC.
TECH RIDER

In a future so near you can taste it, the mysterious conglomerate Monocorp fabricates an epidemic condemning intimacy to profit from its “safe” new pseudo-sex product called the Love Light. Meanwhile, at an underground "intimacy" speakeasy, four fallen popstars gather in collusion to plan their revenge against Monocorp’s devious CEO.

As the world teeters on the brink of destruction, can these unlikely heroes overcome their differences in time to stop Monocorp’s evil agenda?

This hip hop musical smartly blends Lady Gaga-esque popstar theatricality with Blade Runner’s dark comic vision. The musical includes rap lyrics from hip-hop legend Kool Keith, Mistah Fab, and J Diggs.

Written by: John Papageorge
Directed by: Kiff Scholl

BACKSTAGE
A private lockable dressing room and prop cabinet is required.

LIGHTING
Needed: Color, otherwise can work on any plot.

This is a rock show and the lighting should represent that. We’re able to work on any rep plot so long as we can add lots of color. In a perfect world, movers and LEDs are involved, but we can make do without...so long as we have color.

The show does request a fog or haze machine.

PROJECTION
Needed: 4k Lumen Projector.

There are many supplementary projections in the show ranging from background images to product commercials. The projections are currently designed for single projection on a 4k lumen machine, but can be upgraded upon request.

SOUND
Need Microphones - 10 wireless or 4 handheld.

Wireless is preferred but handheld is sufficient in smaller houses.

All music is to professionally engineered tracks.

SETTING/PROPS
Provided by show: Costumes, hand props, sound and video files in Qlab.

Requested from venue: Projection surface on back wall (non-traditional preferred, see pics); 2 smaller step units, or one large one; multi-level set if possible, and if not, at least the ability to create small levels with blocks and platforms; sheer fabrics (see pic)

TECH TIME
Needed: Full day of tech separate from load-in.

Because this is a rock musical with a lot of different moving parts, we would require at least one solid tech day and evening to rehearse, test mics, and set lights in the space. This would be separate from a load-in and focus day.

El Greco Productions Presents

Future Sex, Inc.

The Satirical Pop Musical Sensation


Following a critically acclaimed run in 2016, the hit musical formerly known as Siamese Sex Show is revamped and reimagined

LOS ANGELES (January 9, 2017) -- What does the future hold for sex? The mysterious conglomerate Monocorp fabricates an epidemic condemning intimacy to profit from its “safe” new pseudo-sex product called the Love Light. Meanwhile, at an underground "intimacy" speakeasy, four fallen popstars gather in collusion to plan their revenge against Monocorp’s devious CEO — a la the current political climate. As the world teeters on the brink of destruction, can these unlikely heroes overcome their differences in time to stop Monocorp’s evil agenda?

El Greco Productions and Theatre Planners presents the smash hit satirical pop musical Future Sex, Inc. opening at the Lounge Theatre in Hollywood on January 27. Helmed by award-winning director Kiff Scholl, Future Sex Inc., formerly known Siamese Sex Show, enjoyed a critically acclaimed run in 2016. Now entitled, Future Sex, Inc., this pop musical blends Lady Gaga-esque popstar theatricality with Blade Runner’s dark comic vision.

The musical includes an infectious soundtrack with rap lyrics from hip-hop legend Kool Keith, Mistah Fab, and J Diggs. According to Hollywood Revealed, "The show is a joy ride with cutting edge music and... stand out performances,” Rolling Stone wrote "Great fun! Music is Amazing. Guardians of the Galaxy meets the Black Eyed Peas,” LA Weekly added, “Go! Exuberant, fanciful, deliciously weird.” Listen to the Future Sex, Inc. soundtrack here: www.futuresexinc.com

The show humorously explores the importance of connecting and potential loss of intimacy in not only an increasingly technological world but in a satirical bent on many of the issues going on in our country right now. “Future Sex, Inc. is a living comic book that satirizes pop music, technology, and of course sex,” says director Kiff Scholl. "Enter the underground world of the Future Sex, Inc. — a sexy, shadowy, decadent futuristic cabaret that will keep you coming back for more.”
