Never Ever Land

Studio Stage
520 N. Western Ave. Los Angeles

Theatre Unleashed presents Never Ever Land, the world premiere play by former child star and accomplished writer and director Rider Strong. Young Tim Gable’s family accused the world’s most famous singer of sex crimes in 1993. With the settlement, they walked away millionaires. Now, Tim is ready to tell the public the truth...but does he even know what that is? Helmed by acclaimed director Michael A. Shepperd and produced by Oscar-winner Andrew Carlberg, this bold, fictional new work offers a unique and deeply personal take on one of the most shocking lawsuits of all time and its lasting affects for one family in particular. It also takes a hard look at our celebrity culture in general, from all sides of the looking glass.

On Stage Los Angeles - Somewhat Recommended

"...A World Premiere is exciting. This one, perhaps with a respect for the hearing health of the cast and the audience with maybe a more realistic presentation of the material, as salacious as it might be, could be an idea for a slightly more subtle approach to an extremely rough subject."

Stage Raw - Somewhat Recommended

"...Never Ever Land has all the elements of an intensely dramatic story but never narrows its focus: Its most crucial and dramatic events are only referred to in conversation. None of the characters as written are especially likable or redeeming and the story's most important character is never seen or heard. The accused remains comfortably anonymous while the victims are forced to live with silent acceptance. The truth remains obscured by greed and blinded by the prospect of fame. There are no heroes and no justice - only victims of a selfish kind of love."

Haines His Way - Somewhat Recommended

"...The cast does a decent job of inhabiting their characters; the problem being they are all extremely unlikable, even the kids. You won't want to spend any time with them let alone the interminable two hours it takes for Strong to conclude his tale that finally ends without much of a resolution. Director Michael A. Sheppard keeps the staccato action somewhat interesting with the loud and raucous scene changes featuring the video designs of Shiloh and Rider Strong."
