About this show

Bailiwick Arts Center presents Steven Fales' one-man show Confessions of a Mormon Boy. Told with humor, song, and the Book of Mormon, in his unflinchingly honest comic/dramatic monologue, Steven Fales, a sixth-generation Mormon, plays many characters from his highly distinctive life's journey as a gay Mormon, a Boy Scout, husband, father, and Manhattan escort. Confessions details his failed attempt to overcome his "same-sex attraction" through "reparative therapy," resulting in his divorce and excommunication from the Mormon Church. While struggling to make it as an actor, he became a high-end male escort-for-hire in a period he calls his "gay adolescence." Hear from Fales himself what it took to leave the world of prostitution and drugs, re-establish a life of integrity, and reclaim his "Donny Osmond" smile.
