WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Incredibly Famous Willy Rivers is the story of a rock star who, after surviving a deranged fan's assassination attempt, is courted by corporate star-maker machinery to stage a comeback. The horror of returning to the spotlight ever present, Willy quests to recover his family, his artistic voice, and the connection to his heartland roots. Inspired by the assassination of John Lennon and the John "Cougar" Mellencamp-type struggle between artists and producers, the play offers a harrowing vision of our culture's need for "15 minutes of fame." The ensemble of characters grapples with their own feelings of jealousy, fear, hurt, and awe of the "incredible fame" they see bestowed on Willy, striking at the heart of our celebrity crazed, American Idol era.
