It's time to be the best you you can be! New musical Lizard Boy has announced their impending New York premiere, with performances set to begin June 1.

If you followed our coverage of the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, you'll remember Lizard Boy: the inventive, comic book inspired coming of age musical received an honorable mention for our favorite shows of the festival.

With book, music and lyrics by Justin Huertas, the production will feature original stars Huertas, Kiki deLohr, and William A. Williams. Preview performances will begin June 1 at Theatre Row, with opening night set for June 14. The strictly limited engagement will run through July 1.

Brandon Ivie, responsible for the cult hit Jasper in Deadland, leads the creative team, which will also include music director Steven Tran. Additional creative team members will be announced at a later date.

Following Trevor, a man who has lizard skin due to an unusual childhood incident, the musical takes audiences on his journey of finding acceptance and empowerment as he goes on a Grindr date, encounters an old classmate, and must prepare to be a hero - for himself and the world.

The Off-Broadway production will be produced by Prospect Theatre Company, with special arrangement from Creative Endeavor Office (Carolyn D. Miller & Matthew J. Schneider), Blair Russell, Dawn Smalberg, and Bev Ragovoy.
