Experience “MORMON Boy” for yourself as award-winning storyteller Steven Fales comes to Palm Springs with his international one-man sensation CONFESSIONS OF A MORMON BOY now in residence for “Storytelling Tuesdays” at The Club at Hotel Zoso. TUESDAYS ONLY!
Anyone who has ever felt like an outcast in any way will love this show told with humor, song and unflinching honesty. CONFESSIONS OF A MORMON BOY is the inspiring true story of Steven Fales’ journey from being a devoted, sixth-generation Mormon, former missionary, and father of two to coming out as gay after trying conversion therapy and being excommunicated from the church of his birth. Riding an emotional roller coaster of extremes – from perfect Mormon boy in Utah to perfect rent boy in Manhattan – Fales discovers what it means to finally come home, if only in your heart. Runs approximately 90-minutes without intermission.
Shows begin at 7:30 PM. Doors open at 5:30 PM for drinks and dinner featuring an extensive full-service “Mormon Boy” food, wine, and cocktail menu. Special storytelling guests at 7:00pm including comic Jill Klimmel and others.
