AOL User 927, The Theatrical Production

A new play called “User 927,” inspired by the thousands of AOL users whose personal search histories were posted online for all to see and dissect, opens on June 6th at the St. Stephen’s Theatre in Philadelphia. Hardcore Consumerist readers will recall User 927’s fondness for mold, testicle festivals, slow-dancing steps, and pedophilic imagery (full search history here). The theater’s site say it’s “a thriller about cyberstalking, search engines, and the way information is obtained, manipulated, and released in our wired world.” We have high hopes for the production, judging by how awesome the group’s rendition of “A Very Merry Unauthorized Children’s Scientology Pageant” turned out (video inside…)

    I prolly would go to this. But unless I missed something, the church’s website doesn’t have any mention of the show, or how to buy tickets.

    Try http://www.bratproductions.org. St. Stephen’s is at 10th and Ludlow. Parking is a pain in the butt, but the gang at Brat is very interesting.

    @msthe8r: Thanks. Eh, I’ll just take SEPTA to The Gallery instead of trying to park.

    I was always fond of user 23187425, who seemed to be having a surreal and incredibly sad one-way conversation with the search function: [www.lot49.com]
