GRANDPA JOHNSON IS DEAD
A Hollywood Happening
Grandpa Johnson IS DEAD was a choose-your-own-adventure menu of micro-performances on American desire, death, nostalgia, and indulgence in Hollywood, in HOLLYWOOD. Staged at the now-defunct Grandpa Johnson’s Cocktail Club, the show allowed audiences to “order” scenes as they please. This collective mode of storytelling explored everything from LA’s Bukowski-fetish and networking pro-tips to American ritualism and the earthquake that will change life as we know it.
