Lizard Boy

Lizard Boy: A New Musical by Justin Huertas.

A queer rock musical about a boy who looks like a lizard.

There’s only one day a year that scale-covered Trevor can blend in with the crowd: “Monster Fest.” Tired of hiding, he sets out to make a love connection – but Fate might just be calling him, instead. Featuring lush indie-rock melodies, this comic-inspired queer fable is a timely reminder of the restorative powers of loving and being loved.
