About the show

Spin Cycle presents the US premiere of this underground hit about Tyler, a twenty-four-year-old who sells his body on a nightly basis. This intimate, immersive production will be performed for an audience of 10. More…

On a regular working night, things are about to spiral out of control leaving Tyler questioning whether living in the city is really worth the price of rent.  Audiences are invited to join Tyler at Tyler’s Basement in Bushwick, Brooklyn for this dark and humorous look at sex, violence, and city living.

Theater Pizzazz

"A stark, hilarious, pathetic, outre, and grotesque pastiche...Tyler Everett, exquisitely played by Eamon Yates, shares his story intimately with the audience...Eamon as Tyler flits around the studio, sitting with us, dancing, aware of his beauty, secure in his seductivity, all the while telling a story of contradictions, abasement, and horror...Yates’ performance is amazing and chilling: he humanizes a charming young man dehumanized by the circumstances of his life."

"This cheeky Ortonesque reverie is hilariously delivered in all of its wicked rhythmic glory by Eamon Yates who gives a fearless performance as Tyler...The totality of his unflinching achievements in the role is substantial...Ireland-Reeves’ adeptly constructed and flavorfully written monologue is a wild character study...The tarted up production wondrously elevates the familiar material into a relatively engaging 75 minutes."

Clever, Raunchy, Entertaining, Conceptual, Flirty

See it if you want something intimate, experimental, and like a slice-of-life character study.

Don't see it if you want a lot of nudity or sexual heat. The show is a bit of tease with all of its salacious promises.

Absorbing, Edgy, Entertaining, Graphic language

See it if u don't mind spending an intimate 75 min w/a rent boy recounting his colorful life in the business w/o whitewashing any of the racy details.

Don't see it if ur squeamish about frank descriptions of (gay) sexual encounters, drug use, and violence; u may be uncomfortable in very intimate settings.

Also Although many reviewers have referred to the show as "raunchy", I didn... Read more Read less

Clever, Great acting, Quirky, Riveting, Entertaining

See it if you'd enjoy listening to a good story by one actor about a rent boy who is making it work in NYC - the ups and downs and how it affects him.

Don't see it if you would be uncomfortable in a very intimate setting whee you are on the "stage" and likely become part of the action in a harmless way.

78
Ambitious, Edgy, Intense, Raunchy, Intimate

See it if you want an unconventional theatre experience. Super cool space, detail designed. Young, fun devoted performer telling interesting story.

76
Absorbing, Cliched, Entertaining

Don't see it if gay people living their gay life or gay cliches annoy you

75
Great acting, Raunchy, Cliched

See it if you love immersive theater. With only 10 audience members in a small room in a basement, you better be prepared to participate.

Don't see it if don’t like intimate settings, interactions with actors, active participation, brief nudity, LGBT concerns.

Edgy, Great acting, Intense, Raunchy, Indulgent

See it if you want an intimate setting for this intriguing story, it's offensive but the story is captivating - fantastic acting if nothing else

Don't see it if you want traditional theater, or if the subject matter offends (it's kind of the point to offend and be incredibly brash about it)

Great acting, Cliched, Slow

See it if You enjoy one-person shows, or gay themed shows.

Don't see it if You expect a story that makes sense

48
Raunchy, Decent acting, Uncomfortable venue, Not the kind of story i can enjoy

See it if If you like brief nudity and a good looking actor

Don't see it if You’re uncomfortable in stranger environments. You’re uncomfortable with a raunchy story

16
Indulgent, Disappointing, Excruciating, Cliched, Insipid

See it if you like awkward eye contact and interaction with an actor doing a cliched part and like sitting through a long slow pointless story

Don't see it if you are expecting something interesting or thought provoking, also dont expect the nudity and sensation they are marketing

90
Dizzying, Edgy, Great acting

See it if you like an edgy solo show about a young gay misguided hustler.

Don't see it if you dont like 1 man shows or are offended by raunchy language. The story is very disjointed but all comes together at the end.

96
Edgy, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Quirky, Raunchy

See it if You like unusual theatre in unusual spaces. Definitely for a more adventurous contemporary audience.

Don't see it if You’re offended by strong language and very adult themes. Very intimate setting so be aware of that.

Great acting, Riveting, Confusing, Immersive, Intimate

See it if You like being physically on the stage and don't mind being touched. The timeline is confusing, but the story grips you and doesn't let go.

Don't see it if If you like your theatre at a distance, and don't like actors looking straight into your eyes from just feet away, this is not for you.

Also There will be a connection whether you want it or not. Powerful.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Great acting, Indulgent, Great staging

See it if you want compelling first-person narrative of life and challenges of gay male commercial sex worker. Wonderful performance, well-staged.

Don't see it if you won't appreciate frank talk about male-male sex, or sex for money. Play is wordy (editing advised), but a unique theater experience.

See it if the idea of experiencing a young male rent boy energetically narrate his hair-raising story in the intimacy of his bedroom intrigues you.

Don't see it if the prospect of experiencing (& maybe gently interacting with) a high-octane performer in a room-size space frightens you.
