Unlike anything you have ever experienced before. The true story of Michelangelo, ex-rent boy, artist and sexual outlaw told with wit, heart, humor and stunning visuals.

Grab a complimentary glass of wine and follow Alasa' through the House of Terror of his childhood into his magical "safe place" filled with images and found objects. Seated, within this sacred place, Alasa' shares his personal journey with you. "From the age of three until the age of six I enjoyed a rather delightful sexual relationship with my father....I wish it had not happened as it sexualized me a such a young age and robbed me of my childhood". Cathartic in nature, Confessions reminds you of your own deepest secrets, darkest longings, and biggest triumphs. Saturdays through June 27 at 8PM Adult material.
