About this show

Waking one morning to find fur growing on the backs of his hands, young Billy discovers the awful truth his mother has been hiding from him for 14 years. Cast from his home, he sets out on a journey to find his father, the legendary Gorilla Man. Combining influences as diverse as Tod Browning, Tom Sawyer, and T. Rex, Gorilla Man is a strikingly original new rock musical. It's a darkly comic coming-of-age tale that explores issues of violence, identity, and free will against the backdrop of a warped American landscape. Performance Space 122 presents this new play by Kyle Jarrow, author of the Off-Broadway hits A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's Scientology Pageant (OBIE Award), Armless (FringeNYC Overall Excellence Award), and President Harding is a Rock Star. Running in rep with Young Jean Lee's new play Pullman, WA.
