In Damien Chazelle’s acclaimed musical film La La Land, the character of Mia Dolan, played by Emma Stone, writes and performs a solo stage show in an attempt to launch her acting career. Whilst the solo piece, titled So Long Boulder City, does help Mia in making an important connection, the show itself is never seen in the movie.
Actor Jimmy Fowlie has decided to give So Long Boulder City the stage time it deserves—by writing and starring in his very own version. Following a hit run in Los Angeles, the show is set to play Off-Broadway at The Subculture Theatre beginning December 1.
So Long Boulder City is co-written and directed by Jordan Black, and will play a limited engagement through January 7, 2018. Opening night is set for December 7.
The solo show is billed as “a life-affirming tale of determination, ambition, crushed hopes and Hollywood triumph.”
The production will feature 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).
So Long Boulder City is presented by Mike Lavoie, Carlee Briglia, and Keith Boynton.
Fowlie’s theatre credits include the world premiere of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson at the Kirk Douglas Theatre. He has appeared in CBS's 2 Broke Girls, HBO's The Comeback, Teachers, The Joe Schmo Show, CollegeHumor Originals, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!
