GRINDR The Opera

GRINDR The Opera Erik Johannes von Ransom's original, operatic parody of the hook-up app that changed gay life as we know it. Copyright 2014

Four gay men, seeking different types of connection, intersect to hilarious and calamitous results in this sung-through musical parody that puts the notorious gay hook-up app into the exaggerated world of opera. With musical styles ranging from contemporary pop to baroque, Grindr The Opera is a daring, humorous look at the changing landscape of gay relationships, and the greatest catalyst for the shift: GRINDR. Text & Music by Erik Johannes von Ransom

Mission: Please help get the word out, so the world can, "Get ready to GRINDR..."
