XIMER, a unique new live theatrical electronic music experience set to
debut at the American Theatre of Actors. Performances run from October 19 – 30.
Produced by Markus Ferraro and John Lant, XIMER tells the story of the
first LGBTQ super hero set in an electronic musical.
Producers John Lant and Markus Ferraro in association with Write
Act Repertory today announced their new Off-Broadway production, the concept musical, XIMER,
(pronounced “shimmer”). It will debut at the American Theatre of Actors (314 West 54 th Street, New York
City). Performances run from October 19 – 30.
XIMER is an all-electronic musical where you will be immersed in a club world. The audience is
transported through key moments in LGBTQ+ history showing how pain can be wielded for good in the
right hands. Though dark and ominous, XIMER is about the light within us all, driving us to stand up for
what’s right and shows that love will always win in the end.
In XIMER, Bradley Fitch is estranged from his parents after coming out and proposing to James
Honeycomb and is immediately kicked out of the family home. Bradley's sister, Miss Dixie, welcomes
Bradley into the big city of Spectral (inspired by Frank Miller's Sin City). The allure of the city’s nightlife
soon consumes Bradley. His naivety is eventually taken advantage of and he is murdered in a hate crime.
His death awakens the XIMER (shimmer) inside Miss Dixie (the seventh sense) and along with it, four
ethereal spirits (Dixie's past lives). Armed with this new power, Dixie finds that taking matters into her own
hands is the only remaining option to avenge the death of her beloved brother.
“Combining all the elements necessary to bring XIMER to life on stage as I have always envisioned it has
been a dream of mine for many years,” said the show’s creator and co-producer Markus Ferraro. “This
show is for theater fans who love electronic music, for EDM fans who love a good story, and for comic
book fans who can be excited about a new super hero who is LGBTQ and born from the community
