A New Musical
Book by Peter Duchan
Music and Lyrics by Breedlove

Directed by Andrew Russell

Once upon a time, not too long ago, a new American folk hero was born in the small town of Silverton, Oregon. A lifelong resident of Silverton, Stu Rasmussen was launched into the spotlight when he became America’s first openly transgender Mayor in 2008. Struggling to overcome the weight of adversity, Stu found uncompromising support and love in the most unlikely of places. Based on true-life events, with music and lyrics by Brooklyn-based songwriter Breedlove and book by acclaimed playwright Peter Duchan, this new musical blends Our Town with The Rocky Horror Picture Show and tells a surprising story full of heart and hope in humanity. Stu’s story is one of not compromising, being entirely yourself, and believing in the power of change – in cities big and small.

“This country has a long and proud history of electing boobs to public office!”
—Stu Rasmussen, Mayor, Silverton, OR
