Lizard Boy at Hope MillKristy Stott, Theatre Editor
Part comic-book fantasy, part coming-of-age love story, Lizard Boy is a thrilling original rock musical set to make its UK debut at Hope Mill Theatre.
Inspired by the superhero stories of X-Men and Spiderman and the coming-of-age musical Spring Awakening, Lizard Boy tells the story of Trevor, a young man who has lizard scales for skin.
Lizard Boy tells the story of Trevor, a young man who has lizard scales for skin.
During an unfortunate childhood accident, Trevor was covered in dragon’s blood which resulted in him growing green and scaly skin. Scared and ashamed, he withdrew from the world. Set twenty years later, the musical follows Trevor on his first date in a year. Discovering he has superpowers and in a fight for his life, the night blows up to be an adventure of mythical proportions.
Written, composed by and starring Justin Huertas, the show took the Seattle theatre scene by storm when it premiered in 2015. The production went on to win four Gregory awards including Outstanding New Play and Outstanding Actor (Musical).
