Created by Cam Cronin and Billy McEntee
February 24 and 25, 2023
730pm

See America’s great gayborhoods with Geraldine Realigned in 60 minutes flat! Should anything go awry, Geraldine’s alter ego — a consultant named Cam, far less zany — will be on hand to course correct, and maybe chitchat about identity formation. Buckle up for a queer road trip that’s one helluva tour (de force).

Creator/Writer – Billy McEntee
Creator/Performer – Cam Cronin
Director – Ryan Dobrin
Scenic and Costume Designer – Rodrigo Hernandez Martinez
Light and Sound Designer – Nick Auer
Video Designer – Claire A. Talbott
Director of Photography – Catalina Kulczar
Stage Manager – Kim Golding

Get a tune up, fill ’er up, and buckle up: Geraldine Realigned is taking you on the road to see America’s Great Gayborhoods! Or…that was her plan, until car woes, detours, and restaurant chains stole her off the main drag. Clumsy and kaleidoscopic, Geraldine’s trip yields data that a consultant named Cam harnesses as research to understand how we form a self. A queer pilgrimage-turned-presentation-turned-performance, Cam and Geraldine’s communion with their audience illuminates how we get to where we want to go.
