Then at the Diversionary Theatre, we will have soon ..,
Three best friends from Washington got together and decided to make a musical. The rest is history – or at least it will be when the cast of LIZARD BOY makes their San Diego debut at Diversionary Theatre this September. Kirsten deLohr Helland, Justin Huertasand William A. Williams make up the entire cast and band of LIZARD BOY, a fantastical comic-book rock concert-slash-theatrical explosion. Director Brandon Ivie originally staged the show at Seattle Repertory, and will return to stage it fresh for Diversionary.
LIZARD BOY follows an unlikely hero in Trevor (Huertas), who hasn’t left his house in a year. After being disfigured in a freak accident as a child (A playground, kids, dragon blood… it was messy) he’s too uncomfortable with the way he looks to go out in public. But the night we meet Trevor he is motivated to take a chance: using Grindr as a lifeline he ends up meeting a cute stranger named Cary (William A. Williams) who does his best to get the shy guy to open up. Weird doesn’t begin to describe the kind of night Trevor embarks upon, where he must confront a stranger from his dreams (Siren, played by Kirsten deLohr Helland) and is challenged to transform from Freak to Hero. The show illuminates a fantastical comic book world where individuality is celebrated to the tune of a wild assortment of instruments from kazoos to cellos and guitars to ukuleles.
LIZARD BOY plays September 29th – October 30th on the Diversionary Theatre Mainstage. Performances run Thursdays at 7pm, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm. More information is available at www.diversionary.org/lizardboy
ASOLO REP PRESENTS GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER; THE NEW STAGE ADAPTATION OF THE MILESTONE 1967 FILM OPENS MARCH 11th.
“The perfect piece of theater.” – DC Theatre Scene
Nearly 50 years after the groundbreaking film inspired
the world, Asolo Rep is thrilled to present Todd Kreidler’s electric stage adaptation of the iconic Academy Award®-winning film GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER. The production poignantly continues the fourth season of Asolo Rep’s five-year American Character Project, an exploration of who we are as a nation – past, present and future.
A handsome, prestigious doctor meets a beautiful young woman. The two begin a whirlwind romance and their swift courtship leads to a happily accepted proposal. The catch? It’s 1967 in America – the handsome doctor, John Prentice, is a black man and his intended, Joanna Drayton, a white woman. When Joanna surprises her proudly liberal parents with the engagement, their morals and values are put to the test in this moving story that deftly challenges the notion that love can conquer all.
