Mormon Confessional

Confessions aren't just for Catholics anymore. As proof, Denver's Dangerous Theatre is presenting Steven Fales's ninety-minute solo play Confessions of a Mormon Boy.

It starts off with Fales as a Mormon boy in Utah and follows him as he becomes a high-priced call boy in New York City. This adventure is his true life story, and he addresses such topics as reparative therapy, ex-communication, divorce, prostitution and crystal-meth addiction. With all these controversial themes in one play, could there also be violence and nudity? "There's no real violence," laughs Winnie Wenglewick, proprietress of Denver's Dangerous Theatre. "Bits and pieces are really intense, but he does strip down to a thong -- and he's a nice-looking man."

Confessions of a Mormon Boy is being sponsored by, which will present five performances beginning today at 7:30 p.m. Dangerous Theatre is located at 2620 West Second Avenue; tickets are $30 for evening performances and $25 for matinees, with $5 discounts for students, seniors, military and members of the Colorado Theater Guild.
