Kimball Allen’s theatrical work to date is a mix of deeply personal confession and performance art. When mistakes on his career path landed him in prison, he began keeping a journal as part of his self-rehabilitation. Although his formal education had not exposed him previously to performance studies or theatre history, he felt drawn to theatre as the best art form in which to tell his story. His self-produced first play, “Secrets of a Gay Mormon Felon,” was first staged in Kansas City. His performances have since led him deeper into his encounters with live theatre, as he generates new work that explores controversial topics and taboos within his former religion and his personal life.

Our star, Ta’rea Campbell, who played the disco diva Deloris Van Cartier, never lacked stage presence or luster. Similarly, Mother Superior, performed by Hollis Resnik, was sensationally uptight!

Seattle’s annual forty plus year running music and arts event Bumbershoot is a mega festival and at times a bit overwhelming when it comes to deciding what to see due to a competitive lineup and the large crowds.
