Chanel &the Circus will present the World Premiere of their solo musical, "All the Boys I Blocked" where Chanel takes you on a clown-driven rollercoaster of blocked exes and train- wreck relationships! Highly interactive, Audience members get to share their "blocked" stories and later Chanel actually "dates" three lucky audience members who may or may not get blocked. This jagged little thrill ride will have you laughing and crying as you navigate the accordion-fueled madness between jadedness, redemption, and the dangerous fantasies of love or was it infatuation?

This 45-minute solo show packs a big musical punch with Chanel playing Guitar, Piano, Ukulele and Accordion while wailing live on stage to 10 new original songs like, "Blocked, Mental Breakdown, CVS, Worth the Gold" and many more! All this making "All the Boys I Blocked" a truly unique, comedic musical and heart-felt adventure that's all about self-acceptance and taking back control of your matter how weird you are!

The Creative Team includes:

Chanel Samson, playwright, composer, and performer. Chanel cut their teeth in the entertainment industry in Liverpool England at Paul McCartney's music school, got kicked out of the country, and landed back home in LA. Chanel formed a community of genderfluid-pansexual queers with their variety show The Secret Circus and toured in bands such as Chanel & the Circus and Praise Kink.

Now they are taking their piano, accordion, and ukulele to the stage in this raw unfiltered one person show that will make you laugh, cry, and quit your day job (if you're unhappy with it of course, if not, then good for you! pay for this show). Chanel is super excited to present their first-ever Hollywood Fringe production this year with the World Premiere of "All the Boys I Blocked!"
