In the
Boom Boom Room

written by david rabe
April 21 - may 6, 2017

Chrissy, a bright young woman with a background of harshness that has robbed her of her innocence long ago, has visions of a career as a dancer. She finds herself in The Boom Boom Room, a disco/bar in Philadelphia meant to be her first step on the road to a better life.  Instead, she must fight to defend her dream  and keep her anger in check amid the sex and stimulation that surround her, the psychological residue of her parent’ betrayals, and the bizarre pack of suitors who follow her.  In a desperate search, Chrissy careens from the seductive mistress of ceremonies at The Boom Boom Room to the earnestly friendly gay man next door to a brutally passionate lover.  In its compassionate look at Chrissy’s living nightmare, In the Boom Boom Room is a piercing look at a society dangerously close to our own lives, and a drama that captures both our hearts and our heads.
