DVAA CELEBRATES PRIDE!
DVAA is excited to welcome ¡Oso Fabuloso & The Bear Backs! to the Tusten Theatre, Friday, June 24th, at 7:30 PM. Kicking off Pride Weekend's festivities with this rock-confessional musical, akin to Hedwig, but riskier.
¡Oso Fabuloso & The Bear Backs! tells the story of a queer Latine bear named Oso Fabuloso (C. Julian Jiménez), who has recently been dumped by a two-timing Daddy bear. In order to overcome his depression, Oso seeks the help of his therapist Dr. Calvo (P.K. Variance), who convinces him to use his gift of song to sing the blues away. Oso agrees to go on tour with his therapist/guitarist and his two best friends/backup singers, Gummy (Vasilios Leon) and Grizz (Joseph Distl), hoping it will cure him of his romantic woes!
¡Oso Fabuloso & The Bear Backs! is an INTAR (International Arts Relations) production.
Book & Lyrics by C. Julian Jiménez, music composition by P.K. Variance and directed by Lou Moreno.
