As of January 1st, 2023—the 4 F0UND3RS will be taking a step back from BL4KM4SS.
Going out the way they came in: at the stroke of midnight at New Years, this time to a broader audience and out of the shadows.
This is not the end of immersive theater for any of them. Each F0UND3R has other passions they are exploring, ventures they are building, and other projects they are working on. While continuing to have each other’s back and best interests at heart, the 4 F0UND3RS thought it would be best to shift focus… at least for now.
Alex C. James has created several musical immersive experiences recently, working with artist like Cancer Christ, Fusion Babies, Sleeperz, Bushfire, and Jomo in conjunction with CoCo Beach Presents in Long Beach. Alex continues to push artistic boundaries and play with conventions by combining socially conscious music arts with live performance theater. Follow Alex at @safekidzab for future show information, the continuation of the M-series, and remote shows in 2023. To keep up with Alex, follow his Instagram at @andbenderran.
Amori “Kitty” Stewart continues to perform with fire at various shows. Recently, Kitty was brought on as a character performer for Knotts Berry Farm. You can spot her ice dancing as Peppermint Patty or doing Meet and Greets as Snoopy during Knotts Merry Farm! During the 2023 Peanuts Celebration, Kitty will be performing in the Music Goes Round Show in Camp Snoopy! To keep with what she’s up to follow Amori at @lovebug615 on Instagram.
Paul Stephen Edwards continues his artistic ventures through film and photography, recently winning Best Sci-Fi Film for shooting 16-Bits (From the Director of Ugly Sweater Party, Aaron Mento) and filming 2 segments for the anthology Body Count (Written by Jenn Nangle) this winter. You can find Paul at @xigarun on Instagram.
Reyna “Chainsaw Queen” Velarde continues to torment people, instead you can find her in the wrestling ring as Chainsaw @wow_chainsaw at WOW (Women of Wrestling @wowsuperhereos ) on KCAL 9 on Saturday nights at 11pm (check your local listings). Follow her Chainsaw account for live show information and air dates!

Of course, you can also catch the 4 F0UND3RS at the 17th Door (at least most of us, we were all there this last season!) And we will all be featured in the up coming film, No Way to Die, currently being edited by the one and only Kris Smith! Follow the film’s progress, BTS, and announcements at @noway2die
The 4 F0UND3RS have encouraged their cast and crew to create their own content. During lock down, they presented a contest for cast members to create their own show. Tim Elrod and Linnea Swanson presented two winning ideas which are currently in development.
Coming Soon- Tattered & Frayed Productions by Tim Elrod, follow @tattered_and_frayed We look forward to the future.
