Touch Performance Art, a resident company at the American Repertory Theater's Oberon, performed “Sexyback: or what you will” in front of an audience for the first time Monday night. The show, which will have a workshop performance again in July to prep for a fall run, is a mashup between boy-band hits and Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night.” Colin Thurmond, music director and writer of the show, says he aims to have the production feel like a boy band concert. Based on what we saw of Monday’s audience, that’s exactly how it all went down.
