Watch a clip from Orange is the New Musical.


Your favorite Netflix prison series, Orange Is The New Black, gets the full parody treatment, complete with songs, dances and jokes inspired by the groundbreaking hit show. Join the behind-bars adventures of Piper, Alex, Red, Nicky, Crazy Eyes and more for a musical re-imagining of the day-to-day struggles of life in prison. OITNM is a gender-bending, mind-warping, laugh-till-you-cry musical spoof. Bootless once again stages the first licensed production of an original new work.

Join the Fuzzy Duck Troupe for a (not so) kid friendly version of that all-time favorite classic, Oedipus Rex. In Oedipus for Kids!, you’ll learn about blind people, familial love, and communicable diseases! Sing along to favorite songs like “A Little Complex,” “What’s It Like When Ya Get The Plague?” and “My Lover Is My Husband Is My Son.” Oedipus for Kids! is proudly sponsored by BEANZ! Coffee for Kids. Warning: Oedipus for Kids! may contain manslaughter, eye-gouging, and parental incest. Oedipus for Kids! is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French.

As the warm-up each night of Adult Playground, audiences get to embrace their inner-child with The Shock Puppets. The gleefully profane sock puppet sketch comedy show created by Chris Manley and Jessie Rose of the Rose Theatre Company in Texas makes its audible gasp regional premiere with Bootless. A far cry from standard sock puppet children’s theater, The Shock Puppets embodies “all the messed-up s**t we normally can’t do because there’s a kid around.” – Chris Manley.
