Flying V Presents

Be Awesome: A Theatrical Mixtape of the 90s

September 22 – October 9


An original show conceived and directed by Flying V Producing Artistic Director Jason Schlafstein. Created in the spirit of past Flying V hits like The Best of Craigslist and the Flying V Fights series, Flying V Theatre’s world premiere of Be Awesome: A Theatrical Mixtape of the 90s explores memory, nostalgia, transition, and that moment where you choose what to keep and what to leave behind.


BETHESDA, MD (August 9, 2016) Through a night of live action music videos set to the soundtrack of that totally Awesome decade the 90s, this devised show takes us back to a time of flannel, slap bracelets, and Saturday morning cartoons, while asking the question of who are we now? This show asks the questions –What if you were dying? What is the mixtape you would leave behind to create a connection with someone you love but will never know? How do you encapsulate your life into a series of songs?
