Fales' acclaimed one-man, autobiographical show will begin an open ended run at the newly renovated SoHo Playhouse at 15 Vandam St. Jan. 27, 2006.
Directed by Tony Award winner Hofsiss (The Elephant Man), the play opens Feb. 5.
"An inspiring true story told through humor, song and the Book of Mormon, Fales' critically acclaimed solo play explores one young man's captivating journey through excommunication, divorce, prostitution and drugs, as he struggles to reclaim himself, his children and his 'Donny Osmond' smile," according to production notes.
Confessions of a Mormon Boy started as a stand-up comedy routine in Manhattan. The full play first premiered to sold-out crowds in Salt Lake City in 2001.
Developmental stagings of the work have played San Francisco's New Conservatory Theatre, Miami's Coconut Grove Playhouse, Chicago's Bailiwick Repertory Theatre, San Diego's Diversionary Theatre (where it broke box office records) and the Connecticut Repertory Theatre. The production received an Overall Excellence Award at the 2004 New York International Fringe Festival. The production features set and lighting design by Tim Saternow (Squonk) and costume design by Ellis Tillman (Urban Cowboy). The running time is 90 minutes with no intermission. The producing team consists of Carlton Spalding, Brian Malk, James Fales and Kyle Kimoto.
Performances will play Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings at 8 PM, Saturdays at 2 PM and 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM and 7 PM. There is an added performance Feb. 1 at 2 PM, and there is no matinee performance Feb. 5.
