54 Below

A Nonprofit Cabaret Venue

Sharone Sayegh & Danny J Rooney make their 54 Below writing debut with The Game Boy, a totally epic, 8-bit musical comedy featuring a cast of outrageous characters and a score full of super catchy 1980s-style jams.

The Game Boy follows the story of Omari, a Middle Eastern high school gamer who struggles to fit in with his all-American peers, and wishes he could be more like the majorly cool heroes behind the screen. When he stumbles upon a world-warping-wormhole in his school’s bathroom stall and gets flushed down the pipes, Omari finds himself in an 8-bit alternate universe having to face his real-world obstacles manifested as gnarly video game foes, in order to beat the game and save the Kingdom. Part “Super Mario,” part Spaceballs, part The NeverEnding StoryThe Game Boy is taking musicals to the next level!
