Home Street Home, a new musical written by Tony Award-winning Avenue Qco-writer Jeff Marx, punk rock musician Fat Mike (NOFX) and writer Goddess Soma, premieres Feb. 20 at Z Space in San Francisco.
The developmental run of the new musical follows a series of staged readings at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center earlier this winter. Performances will continue through March 7 under the direction of Richard Israel.
Here’s how it’s billed: “A rock star, a fetish film star and a Tony Award winner have created a groundbreaking new musical that proves love and family can be found in the least likely of places. Raucously entertaining, Home Street Home is a dark comedy that pushes shiny buttons and bold boundaries. This diverse cast sings and dances their way through a celebratory exploration of sex work, drug use, pain and BDSM power exchange. Follow Sue, a teenage runaway with a dark secret, as she gets scooped up by a saucy tribe of slutty, castaway street punks that welcome her into their wild yet surprisingly functional street family. Enriched by the author’s own experiences, a very human truth emerges… we can all find happiness somewhere.”
