A gay psychologist and a handsome young rent boy stumble down a unique path to healing when guided by a mysterious Hollywood glamour queen (as played by a gender illusionist). 55-year-old Gregory has spent his adult life denying the loss he experienced as a young man during the AIDS crisis. After a near-death experience, "The Lady" appears. Is she an inner guide from the Jungian collective unconscious? Or a musical hallucination resulting from a small stroke? Gregory is pushed out of his solitary reality by his unlikely muse, and down the rabbit hole of mid-life crisis where he enters into a turbulent, dangerous relationship with a young male escort named “Chance.”
Produced by Anne Nygren Doherty and the New Musical Theater of San Francisco. With book, music and lyrics by Richard Isen, direction by Jonathan Cerullo, and musical direction by Evan Alparone, this unique theatrical cocktail is one part fun, one part heart, and one part magic.
