About the show:

  • Where best to pee.
  • How to live in someone’s house without them being aware.
  • The spiritual significance of Tang (TM).

Jimmy Grzelak is an Eagle Scout, spiritual voyager, and “winningly offbeat imagination” (Washington Post). Sometime in the early 2000s, somewhere in rural America, young Jimmy was initiated into the ways of a world ruled by adolescent boys. In 2017, older Jimmy woke up and realized that knowledge is now nationally relevant. He comes to Cincinnati to do his duty as a scout – to serve as your guide into the wild.

Creator Bio
Jimmy Grzelak is a practical theologian and theater artist. Immediately after turning in his final college paper, Jimmy launched the U.S.-Canada tour of his solo show mostly about the Boy Scouts titled HOW TO BE A TERRORIST (DCMTA Best of Fringe). In 2013-2014, he spent one year traveling Eurasia by train, living with and learning from some of the newest religious groups in the world with the support of a Florence Chandler fellowship, which funds 365 days of independent study and international travel undertaken with “imagination, moral sensitivity and resourcefulness.” In 2015, Jimmy developed – in collaboration with NYC-based set designer Cate McCrea – a touring gastro-liturgical event, ST. JIMMY CELEBRATES “The Food at Our Feet” (DCTMA Best of Fringe, Favorite Solo Show, Favorite Performer, Favorite Show; Pittsburgh Fringe National Award). Now, Jimmy lives in Philadelphia, performing and working on projects there and elsewhere.

Press for Jimmy’s previous touring fringe festival works

“Wunderkind of weird… a force of nature, a kind of cynical Peter Pan…the eerie spirit child of Brian Wilson and Yma Sumac.” -Washington City Paper

“A winningly offbeat imagination.” -Washington Post

“Balls.” -Mobtreal.com

“In awe… reminiscent of Freddie Mercury. ★★★★★ ” -DCMTA

“Smart, nimble-footed humor… keep an eye on him – it will certainly be worth following him down the next trail.” -DC Theatre Scene
