[Prince Event Alert] "Mysterious Skin" Assaults L.A., September 9-October 10; or: The Avalanche of "Mysterious Skin" Marketing Begins Now

I'm going to start answering my phone like this: "Hi, this is Prince Gomolvilas Mysterious Skin Opens in September Tickets Are on Sale Now." This is part of an effort to pound into everyone's brains that if you miss this show you do so at the peril of your very soul. And you know me. I'm not one to exaggerate. Deets for your eyes:



MYSTERIOUS SKIN

a play by PRINCE GOMOLVILAS
based on the novel by SCOTT HEIM
directed by TIM DANG
featuring Scott Keiji Takeda, David Huynh, Elizabeth Liang, Christine Corpuz, Marcus Choi, and Ruffy Landayan


Brian gets nose bleeds—and blackouts. Neil gets paid for sex—with older men. Alien abductee Avalyn gets lonely—and wants her next close encounter. As the story unfolds, the characters' parallel lives come crashing together to unlock the past and to uncover the terrifying and heartbreaking truth. (Mature audiences only.)

"Bracing, poignant, and unsettlingly honest."
—San Francisco Chronicle

"Gomolvilas does an impressive job of turning Heim's provocative story into an intriguing piece of theater."
—San Francisco Bay Guardian

"Disturbing, forthright, and believable. The drama [is] razor-sharp and lacerating."
—The Advocate

"Gomolvilas's keen script will challenge and surprise viewers."
—Out.com

  1. Instead of "Opens in September," I would say "Runs nine nine to ten ten." Catchy, eh?
