Confessions of a Mormon Boy

Missionary to hustler and beyond

Could you turn your life story into a business—script it, package it, take it on the road—and maintain your authenticity? Steven Fales’s autobiographical one-man Confessions of a Mormon Boy (directed by Jack Hofsiss) seems to do just that, charting Fales’s journey from LDS missionary to NYC hustler and beyond. It’s a polished piece of theatre that knows what notes to hit, but there’s a human heart beneath the slick showbiz veneer.

Steven Fales is a whiz-bang actor who gets a lot of mileage out of his gleaming smile. His script is gracious to the church that excommunicated him, lampooning spiritual hypocrisy without apparent malice. Confessions of a Mormon Boy is a fascinating glimpse at the skeletons in (and in this case, out of) a stranger’s closet.
