gimmick / trey lyford
gimmick is the producing entity that helps make the original work of theater artist trey lyford possible. With over twenty five years of experience, lyford collaborates with artists from numerous genres including: musicians, magicians, sculptors, film makers, designers, and more.
In a world that retreats more and more towards screen-time isolation, live theater is a rare space for people to collectively experience what it is to be flawed, haunted and human. The works of the new performance company gimmick will aim to investigate, laugh at, and celebrate what it is to live in the current American moment. Performances will engage audiences with dynamic characters, lovable idiots and existential questions explored through absurd humor, rigorous dramaturgy and virtuosic physicality..

PROJECTS IN DEVELOPMENT
THE ACCOUNTANT 2.0
We are reworking our fringe show The Accountant for a run in NYC fall of 2020.
BOY BAND BOYZ (working title)
We have begun preliminary work on a collaboration with Philadelphia based theater artists Jered McLenigan, Sean Close, and Dave Bardeen. The new work will include lots of sexy dancing, singing tight harmonies and the candid convos of a fictitious middle-aged boy band the BOY BAND BOYZ. You haven't heard of them since their smash hit Too Tender to be Touched.
UNTITLED KIDS MUSICAL
The songs are written, the script is there. The rights aren't. Stay tuned! There's a subway, b-boy dancing and a big mess to clean up.
A one-man show using integrated analog looping to create the soundscape.
