One-Man Show Confessions of a Mormon Boy set for Zephyr Theatre
"I'm excited about this run in L.A. because it leads up to the ten-year anniversary revival of "Confessions of a Mormon Boy" off-Broadway in 2016." Said Steven Fales "That is also the year my new book "Oxy-Mormon Memoirs" comes out and the documentary film "Mormon Boy". It's all very exciting. Now that my kids in Utah are raised, I have the time and energy to take things to the next level."
"Confessions of a Mormon Boy" has played off Broadway, across the country and internationally including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and London's West End. This critically acclaimed solo play is Fales' hilarious, harrowing and inspiring true story of extremes from perfect Mormon boy to perfect rent boy and how he found a middle ground reclaiming his kids and "Donny Osmond" smile. Based on original direction by Tony Award Winner Jack Hofsiss ("The Elephant Man").
Tickets are $30 at http://mormonboy.brownpapertickets.com or 1 (800) 838-3006 x 1. Discounts available for students, seniors, military and groups of six or more. Wheelchair accessible.
