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.
