THE UNTITLED HUNTER S. THOMPSON PROJECT
Music and Lyrics by Joe Iconis
Book by Gregory S. Moss
Directed by Christopher Ashley
For La Jolla Playhouse
A gonzo musical about the life and suicide of that most influential and destructive of American Icons: Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. The musical takes a look at the creation of Gonzo Journalism and the pursuit of the American Dream. It’s a blood and confetti stained portrait of an artist coming to terms with his own legacy. There will be peacocks, there will be breakdowns, there will be fireworks.
