About this event

The Glove Theatre and Alyssa Rizzo in conjunction with Trust Your Gut Productions present a developmental workshop production of Picture of David, a new musical based on the Oscar Wilde novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Picture of David is a modern-day adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, and tells the story of David, a country boy with a Christian background, who comes to study at the University of London.  He is innocent, naïve, enthusiastic, and musical.  Pride and vanity get the best of him and he wishes to remain young and handsome forever.  His wish is granted when he trades places with the man in his picture.  David remains the same, while his picture becomes more corrupted over time.  Eventually, he is forced to face the truth about himself to redeem his soul.  But can he?

Picture of David features a pastiche score by composer, Alyssa Rizzo, ranging from pop/rock to light classical.
