Everything is Connected–An Evening of Stories, Most Weird, Many True

Degenstein Theater, Susquehanna University Wednesday, October 16, 2019 7:00 pm 


Experience the artful, playful, outrageously funny, and deeply moving storytelling craft of Peterson Toscano. Drawing on his bizarre personal experiences of conversion therapy along with references to history, literature, science, and the Bible, Peterson takes his audience on an off-beat mental mind trip.  A shapeshifter, he transforms right before your eyes into a whole cast of comic characters. 

I love the intimacy of the one-person performance, but it has its risks. The audience may be shy or even apathetic. That makes it much harder for me, but when the audience is engaged, laughing, smiling, talking back to me, then I suddenly do new things on stage in response. The chemistry we create can be downright magical.

Through the lens of relatable, endearing and hilarious characters we found ourselves considering the intersections between LGBTQ justice and climate change, what we can learn from the LGBTQ struggle for justice and the infinite resources available to us through these relationships.
