StageSceneLA awarded us in several categories including Outstanding Choreography in the Intimate Theater category. Shooting Star is a revealing new musical by Florian Klein and directed by Michael Bello. The show opened May 25th at The Hudson Theatres in LA and ran through June 30th.
It follows the story of Taylor, a young, failed Hollywood actor, who is rocketed to stardom as a porn performer. Everybody tells him that porn is a world for sex, not love, yet his heart yearns for more. As his world slowly comes crashing down, will he stay true to himself and his heart, or will he continue the hunt for fans, fame, and fortune?
The Los Angeles Blade says, “Director Michael Bello takes all that talent and ties it into a package that, combined with Jim Cooney’s flashy choreography and the sound of a tight ensemble of musicians that accompanies the show from upstage makes the evening feel as much like a party as a theatrical presentation.” Read the full review.
