LIZARD BOY From Seattle to NYC | Photo Journal
Lizard Boy is coming to New York this June, but before it hits Theatre Row June 1, Theatrely got an exclusive tour of Seattle (where the show originated and is set) with some of the cast and the director.
Lizard Boy tells the story of Trevor—a young man with green scaly skin. He feels like a monster, and rarely braves the city outside his apartment. But when a powerful voice calls to him in a dream, he impulsively finds a date (on Grindr) and begins an adventure beyond his wildest apocalyptic nightmares...Sparks fly in this queer-indie-rock-action-romance that pulses with fierce conflict and fiercer harmonies, and takes us on a heart-pounding ride of self-discovery that asks: If the world were against you... would you still save it?
Follow director Brandon Ivie, book, music and lyrics writer and cast member Justin Huertas, and fellow cast members Kiki deLohr and William A. Williams as they give us a glimpse into the places in Seattle that inspired the show, and where it all began.
“Where you can buy Falstaff a drink after you've seen them wax poetic across the street for the last two hours. Where the who's who of the Seattle acting scene go to dissect plots and tropes over a cold glass of whiskey.” (William A. Williams)
“When I lived in Belltown, my favorite place to think and write was Sculpture Park. It's an endlessly inspiring immersive art museum that happens to have a lovely view of the mountains.” (Book, music and lyrics writer and cast member Justin Huertas)
“Lizard Boy was literally born in this room. The first reading ever was within these walls and we spent so much time growing and learning together here." (Director Brandon Ivie)
“Where it all began. This place changed our lives.” (Kiki deLohr)
