Broadway’s hunky gay ex-Mormon dad Claybourne Elder (HBO’s The Gilded Age, Broadway: Company, Sunday in the Park with George, Bonnie and Clyde) brings his sold-out touring show to the Utah for the first time in a hilarious, heartfelt and somewhat naughty evening. 

In a show that’s part cabaret, part stand-up, Clay explores sex, fatherhood, and what exactly happens when you eat the body of Christ. With Clay’s favorite music from Sondheim to the Great American Songbook to Whitney Houston – come see why critics call him “Handsome and intense” (NY Observer), “Tough and tender” (NY Daily News) and “Stupid funny as he is drop-dead buff” (The Wrap).
