LIZARD BOY Brings its Tale of Adventure and Self-Discovery

Myth, adventure and self-discovery: LIZARD BOY combines all that skilfully. Set in the heart of Seattle, meet Trevor, a young man with a secret: he is part lizard. But in a world where lizard people are not accepted, it is difficult to live openly.

With intoxicating music that combines indie rock, pop and soulful melodies, LIZARD BOY is an unforgettable musical experience that celebrates its European premiere on the Hamburg stage! So far, the play has only been seen in America, where it premiered in Seattle in 2015. The book and music were written by award-winning author Justin Huertas. No one should miss it!
