by BWW News Desk - May 16, 2018

THE HOLLYWOOD ADRIANA was named One of The Top Five Events of The Week by METROSOURCE MAGAZINE when it opened the DIXON PLACE 2018 QT: RAINBOWS ACROSS THE DIASPORA reading series in January of 2018. The Hollywood Adriana has received the honor of being invited to both the world-renowned HOT! FESTIVAL at DIXON PLACE (July 2018 45-minute version), and to premiere the full script at UNITED SOLO THEATRE FESTIVAL (October 2018 90 minute duration). Hollywood Adriana is the eroticized love child of Reader's Theatre and Medieval Morality play: a poetic novella/solo performance piece designed for the stage, screen, and reader's chair. On the constructed stages of his surreal reality, Rupert's story of obsession, thwarted love, innocence lost, murder, suicide, and catharsis implodes the boundaries of time and place into a continuum of Now, unfolding through his encounters with Sarah Bernhardt, Ramon Novarro, Maya Plisetskaya, Hector Berlioz, hustlers, drag queens, and altar boys.
