Dorian: The Musical

Author(s): Music and lyrics by Joe Evans, book by Linnie Reedman Company: Ruby in the Dust Theatre

This modern queer fairy-tale follows Dorian Gray, a wannabe rockstar with grandiose dreams who strikes a dangerous bargain to achieve success.

Inspired by the classic Oscar Wilde novel, this musical retelling explores the heartache as Dorian faces the prospect of eternal glory which opens a Pandora’s box of love, lust, and corruption.

This show gives the Gothic story a glam-rock twist as the young musician is pulled in every direction by his fans, record producers, photographers—slowly warping his impressionable mind.

Is Dorian cursed? Has he sold his soul—and can he save it? Follow him on the quest for his true identity as he falls further and further into the belief that to love him is to die. Is it too late to change the course of life for “The King Of Black Hearts”, as his adoring fans call him?
