LA LA LAND-Inspired SO LONG BOULDER CITY to Play The Subculture Theatre
It's that one-woman show from La La Land you always knew you never wanted to see...
So Long Boulder City, a new comedy co-written by and starring Jimmy Fowlie as La La Land's Mia Dolan, and co-written and directed by Jordan Black, will play The Subculture Theatre, (45 Bleecker Street, downstairs) beginning December 1st with the official opening scheduled for December 7th.
Straight from the world of almost-Best Picture winner La La Land comes So Long Boulder City, Jimmy Fowlie and Jordan Black's take on Emma Stone's character's ill-fated, never-before-seen, one-woman show. What was it about this poorly produced, shoddily designed and sparsely attended production that was supposed to launch this struggling actress into super stardom? So Long Boulder City is a life-affirming tale of determination, ambition, crushed hopes and Hollywood triumph.
So Long Boulder City is a gift for every actor/singer/waiter who dreams of becoming a star but is met with the harsh reality that they drive for Uber.
So Long Boulder City has set design by Darren Diggle (Red Emma and the Mad Monk), costume design by William Graper, lighting design by Sarah Lurie (Colin Quinn The New York Story)and sound design by M.L Dogg (Oh, Hello On Broadway).
"I'm thrilled to be making my New York Theater debut," said Jimmy Fowlie. "All I know about theater is that when I studied it in college, my professors were like, 'Please don't pursue this!"
