In a recent interview with Prefix, Perry Farrell of seminal ’90s alt-rockers Jane’s Addiction announced that he is currently developing a Jane’s Addiction play. No, make that a musical. No, wait. It’s actually an “immersive theater” project. We give up. Well, whatever the category of Farrell’s ambitious new undertaking, it will definitely combine the music of Jane’s Addiction with a larger-than-life sense of theatrics. According to Farrell, “It’s not going to be in a theater. I’m going to create an environment and the music will be within that environment, and Jane’s Addiction will be within that environment.” Though recent plays like Sleep No More have offered audiences the chance to become part of the productions themselves, a major band has yet to jump on the burgeoning artform of interactive theater. Will we get a chance to pump iron with Dave Navarro? To apply eyeliner with Farrell? We can only hope not.
