IN SEARCH OF TONTO BLUE

World Premiere
7 Stages Theatre
Atlanta, GA
May, 2010

Synopsis

"In Search of Tonto Blue" is a musical, multimedia roller coaster ride into the inner sanctum of three mildly mad characters; the seemingly silent everyman Arthur A. Peterson, his wild superstar alto ego Tonto Blue, and the experimental theatre artist tracking the creation of his newest production Tony Brown.

Soulful, silly and surrealistic this theatrical search for identity will take you down the back roads of your imagination. Meet Arthur A. Peterson, a  quiet, nondescript, middle-aged Everyman, who believes his calling is to find fame and fortune by becoming a pop culture icon.

In the vain of a modern myth, the production tracks the trials and   tribulations of this faceless and voiceless man as he leaves his sheltered life to make a sojourn in search of a persona he believes will make him famous.  While finding entry in to the technological world of pop culture is no easy feat, Arthur unexpectedly connects to his unknown alter ego Tonto Blue and finds not only an identity -- but a voice.
