Benchmark Theatre is a local, professional theatre company launched in 2017. Their next production is the world premiere of FoMo: Formerly Mormon. The play opens Friday, December 8, 2023, and runs through December 23 at The Bench at 40West. General admission is $30 ($25 for students, seniors and military), but on Thursdays tickets are $18.
Written by and starring Frankie Lee, this hilarious and heartfelt play, which swept the Denver Fringe Festival, is the story of a young man discovering his queer identity while signing his life away to the Mormon church.
Frankie Lee genuinely and humorously reflects on the chance he took to escape Mormonism and live as a gay man despite the pain and opposition he faced.
Love, loss, tears, and queer cheers unfold as you are taken on the Mormon journey that changed Frankie forever.
FoMo will be a fun alternative to the traditional holiday fare!
Thursday performances are December 14 & 21 at 8 p.m. Buy tickets here.
