Mormon Boy Seen in Dec. 5 Benefit Prior to NYC Run

News   Mormon Boy Seen in Dec. 5 Benefit Prior to NYC Run Steven Fales, author and star of the solo play Confessions of a Mormon Boy, opening Off Broadway in February 2006, will perform the play 6 PM Dec. 5 at Lincoln Center's Mitzi Newhouse Theater.

The performance is a benefit for The Point Foundation, the national organization that "provides financial support, mentoring and hope to outstanding lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual students who are otherwise marginalized because of their sexual orientation."

The Point Foundation has recently been featured on the cover of Time magazine and on "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

Proceeds from the Lincoln Center event will support the foundation's college scholarship fund.

Confessions of a Mormon Boy, directed by Tony Award winner Jack Hofsiss (The Elephant Man) begins previews Off-Broadway on Jan. 27, 2006, prior to opening Feb. 5 at the newly-renovated Soho Playhouse (15 Vandam St.) in Manhattan.

The piece is "an inspiring true story told with humor, song and the Book of Mormon" and "is a perfect fit for the Point Foundation benefit, dealing as the play does with a gay man's journey from the margins of his own life, back to its center after being sidelined by excommunication from the Mormon church, divorce, separation from his children, male prostitution and drug abuse."
