It's diva versus diva when Hollywood and Broadway: Gloria & Tallulah Talk saunters to the stage of L.A.'s Teatro De La O. This sassy period piece imagines a head-to-head clash between Gloria Swanson and Tallulah Bankhead, two iconic sirens of stage and screen. Set in 1951 at New York City's famed Hotel Astor, the legendary stars are set to receive the prestigious Page One Award for Entertainment. By then, Swanson had blown audiences away with her role as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard, while the Tony-nominated Bankhead had taken Broadway by storm and starred in Hitchcock's Lifeboat. Both had elegance, élan and ego to spare, so expect fireworks when Hollywood and Broadway puts the larger-than-life characters in a room together. With a snooping butler and an overeager hotel clerk popping up to fan the flames, mayhem and lunacy prevail in this world-premiere comedy from L.A.-based fashion designer Octavio Carlin.

Steven Fales is very personable in the one-man show. Theater was way too warm. Glad we sat in front row, seating is a bit cramped for anyone tall. Sorry Steven, but we weren't too excited by this show, guess that's why I seem to be rating the venue rather than the show, though have liked many productions @ the Hudson theaters!

Quotes & Highlights
“[Confessions is] … the best of the solo genre.” —_Los Angeles Times (Critics’ Choice)
“As moving as it is funny.” —_New York Daily News
In The Mormon Boy Trilogy, internationally acclaimed playwright/performer Steven Fales (the original Mormon boy) brings his three autobiographical solo plays together for the first time in repertory, creating a dynamic solo performance event in the spirit of The “Mormon” Conquests. Any of the shows can be appreciated without needing to see all three. Prodigal Dad (Part Three) is a world premiere. The L.A. run of The Mormon Boy Trilogy is an out-of-town tryout preparatory to an off-Broadway engagement this fall TBA. **
**_**Confessions of a Mormon Boy: The Original True Story** _— After excommunication, divorce, prostitution and drugs, a sixth-generation Utah Mormon reclaims his kids and ‘Donny Osmond’ smile. Told with humor, song, and The Book of Mormon. (90 min. without intermission.)
A hit off Broadway (SoHo Playhouse 2006), nationally (Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, Houston, Miami, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, etc.), and internationally (Charing Cross Theatre in London’s West End, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2011, International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival 2008). Originally directed off Broadway by Tony Award-winner Jack Hofsiss, this New York International Fringe Festival phenomenon premiered in LA in 2007 at The Coast Playhouse.
Missionary Position: A Coming-of-Age Tale_ — This comedic prequel is based on Elder Fales’ journals from his mission to Portugal. A fantastical, crowd-pleasing solo ride that takes audiences further behind the Mormon machine than ever before, including the secret Mormon temple ceremony. (90 min. without intermission.)
A hit at the New York International Fringe Festival 2010, the play first premiered for an extended run at Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles 2009 and has been performed in Las Vegas, Ft. Lauderdale, and Salt Lake City.
Prodigal Dad: A Manic Memoir-Meditation – This dramatic world premiere follows Fales as he fights for his life and rights as a father in Utah. As he seeks answers from his Greco-Mormon heritage, he comes face to face with his own demons and his greatest nemesis, shattering family myths and secrets in an underworld where bipolar ghosts and mortals collide. (120 min. with intermission.)
Coached by Larry Moss and developed at readings at Abingdon Theatre and TOSOS Theatre in New York. Steven recently gave staged readings at Rising Action Theatre, Ft. Lauderdale and at the United Solo Theater Festival on Theatre Row last fall. This dramatic sequel to Confessions completes The Mormon Boy Trilogy. **
