OK is just about it. It all feels like the writer and performer are trying really hard to get us to like him and his story rather than telling the story and letting the audience decide! Writer and performer commentary (in a long piece which desperately needs editing) ends up being annoying. The "reveal" ends up being ruined when you encounter the actor in the bar after! This is not meant to be harsh but constructive. Less is more! - Villa Sanuk

Confessions of a Mormon Boy is a brilliant work of one-man theater. Steven Fales weaves the story of his life and his painful journey from denial to honesty about his sexual orientation into a compelling tale. He entertains, informs, and touches the heart of the audience in the process. Along the way, he touches on so many social problems and lessons we can learn about stigma, discrimination, denial, bogus therapies of multiple types, the danger of living a lie, denial, risky sex, and drug abuse.
See this performance with a light heart and an open mind. It deals with mature subject matter. There are references to and brief simulated re-enactments of specific sexual acts. Easily offended or prudish people should go elsewhere.
But if you are ready to be let in to, entertained by, and enlightened by one human being's journey towards a life of greater honesty, integrity, transparency, and self-awareness, this is a great show!!! - Eric Krock

I loved this show. What a story; and what a performance! The honesty and story telling is constant and sincere. I loved it - and the revelation is brilliant. And that's not about taking his top off coralb! - Enjoy
