What is Jurassic Parq?

Hi there. I'm Bryce. I'm one of the writers of Jurassic Parq. Jurassic Parq is the musical 65 million years in the making. We humans have been working on it for about 65 days; Destiny has really been doing the brunt of the early work.

Boldly re-imagined and retold from the perspective of the dinosaurs, Jurassic Parq: The Broadway Musical is an unflinching meditation on gender, sexual, and racial identity in an evolving landscape destined to stun you with its importance. Chaos is unleashed upon the not-so-prehistoric world when one dinosaur in a clan of females spontaneously turns male… because of the frog DNA. The mutation spawns a chain reaction of identity crises, forcing the dinosaurs to question the very facts of life they’ve held as truths.

Jurassic Parq: The Broadway Musical will appear at the FringeNYC 2010 Festival
