LIZARD BOY Receives Digital Extension at the Know

A New Musical with Book, Music, and Lyrics by Justin Huertas


Comic book lore and an indie-rock score collide for one magic night of adventure, music, and love.

There’s only one day a year that scale-covered Trevor can blend in with the crowd: “Monster Fest.” Tired of hiding, he sets out to make a love connection – but Fate might just be calling him, instead. Featuring lush indie-rock melodies, this comic-inspired queer fable is a timely reminder of the restorative powers of loving and being loved. 

Due to demand, we are pleased to announce that we have extended the run of Lizard Boy as a video-on-demand experience. An archived digital recording of Lizard Boy will be available to rent through the Know’s Vimeo channel through Saturday, December 17. Once rented, audiences will have 48 hours to watch the show.

In Lizard Boy, you’ll encounter monsters, mayhem, and virtuoso performances from a quartet of multi-talented actor/musicians.  While the Know’s crack design & production team takes their inspiration from comic book lore to transform the MainStage into a Seattle both like and very unlike our own, the cast will transport you with their soaring melodies and thrilling tale of self-discovery.

Join us for one more week of this thrilling comic-book rock-music adventure as we battle against evil, find our own superpowers, and experience the healing power of loving and being loved. Lizard Boy runs November 18 – December 11, live at the Know, and livestreaming on select dates to your home.
