Dennis Massey, an Elsinora, Tennessee gossip columnist, photo journalist, musical director, community theatre costume designer, event planner and the sole contributor to The Busy Bee, society column flashes us back to 1966 and the events that will forever live in small town infamy. A southern fried comic tour-de-farce co-written and performed by Byron Loyd.
Written Byron Loyd and Susan Morse
Directed by Mark Finley
Performed by Byron Loyd
Director Mark Finley explains the importance and timeliness of the piece, “With the Stonewall Riots of 1969, the invisible community of gays and lesbians fiercely took on greater visibility in America. But gays and lesbians have always been part of the nation’s social fabric—often hiding in plain sight. Rebel Boy Fireworks flashes back to 1966 and disproves of any notion that those pre-Stonewall days were a simpler time.”
Rebel Boy Fireworks is running in repertory with Lavender Songs; A Queer Cabaret In Weimar Berlin written and performed by Jeremy Lawrence, directed by Jason Jacobs. More info is available at www.tososnyc.org
