If you think Anton Chekov's Cherry Orchard of the Living Dead is a madcap mash-up of the Russian realist drama with George Romero-style zombie horror, you would be gloriously (gory-iously?) correct. From the genre-bending brain of Troy Heard, the celebrated theater director (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), comes this new play in which the worlds of czarist Russia and The Walking Dead collide. Madame Ranevskaya has returned to her ancestral manor following yet another whirlwind farewell tour, only to find things turned upside down. Instead of marrying off her nubile daughter Masha to the local scholar, she's boarding up windows and grabbing pistols to ward off an onslaught of resurrected serfs. The Onyx Theatre presents this world premiere supported by grants from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. Learn More

Following on the heels of Steven Fales’ critically acclaimed extended run of his off-Broadway hit, Confessions of a Mormon Boy at the Onyx Theatre in Las Vegas comes his cabaret sensation Mormon American Princess.
In Mormon American Princess, Steven Fales goes back to his musical theatre roots and sings more of his story, confessing, “God has seen me through excommunication, divorce, prostitution and drugs, now we’re working on narcissism—and it’s not going well.” Fales will transform from princess to cowboy in 60 minutes flat leaving audiences laughing (and sighing) all the way!
Mormon American Princessis an exploration of our self-absorbed society using the multi-talented Fales as a microcosm. But with the help of his new Higher Power (She’s fabulous!), he’s beginning to see the light as he continues to put Utah on the map.
This hilarious and poignant cabaret includes original songs like “The Excommunication Polka,” “Narcissus,” and “Cult Rap,” as well as such standards as “I Don’t Know How To Love Him,” “Fifty Percent,” “Son of a Preacher Man,” “If He Walked Into My Life,” “Never Met A Man I Didn’t Like,” and outrageous medleys and parodies of favorite Broadway show tunes including Steven’s popular “Mormon Broadway Medley” and his signature song, “Mormon American Princess.”
