The Hyper Aware Theater Company was founded in 2008, in an effort to push beyond the standard gimmicks of metatheater into a world of pure emotion. Most recently, their sold out run of Time Traveling with Cannibals at Nicu’s Spoon Theater was hailed as “a hilarious journey with outrageously awesome set design . . . which never drags or lags” by theateronline.com.

Production History

Time Traveling with Cannibals  | Open: 07/28/10 Close: 07/30/10
Loosely based on the Bacchai, Time Traveling with Cannibals explores the hysterical and haunting effects of affluence and fame. Ari and Rostam, two old-money, ivy-league hipsters accidentally transport a young Elvis Presley to the present. With time travel deemed a success, the boys shift gears to recreate a cannibalistic life-extending ritual, abandoning Elvis in present day New Jersey without the horrible burden of fortune, females, and fame.

Wild Blue  | Open: 03/30/11 Close: 04/10/11
Loosely based on The Wizard of Oz, Wild Blue imagines the hysterical and haunting moments that caused Jet Blue flight attendant Steven Slater to curse out passengers over the intercom, slide down the emergency slide, and become an instant Facebook sensation.  In the second act, Steven escapes to a cabin near the Canadian border, inhabited by famed 1970’s airline hijacker/outlaw D. B. Cooper.   In this backwoods version of Oz, Steven assumes the role of Dorothy while D. B., as the Wizard, questions whether their actions are “the only sane reaction to an insane society.”  Wild Blue explores the many problems with our overburdened social system and whether or not it’s possible to truly break free.

Wild Blue features Chad Miller (CollegeHumor) as Steven Slater.  The ensemble includes Erin Ronder (The PIT), Ariana Murphy (The Magnet), Jeremy Weber (AMDA), Nastasha Strang (Algonquin Theater), and George Walsh; and features the original song, “The Nearest Exit,” by Patrick Gaughan (The Argyle Effect).
