World Premiere

Lydia and the Troll

May 8 - June 14, 2020

Leo K. Theater

Singer-songwriter Lydia feels held back. Maybe it’s writer’s block, maybe it’s her not-so-perfect boyfriend. But when a mysterious stranger offers her the chance to change her life, she may end up sacrificing more than she ever imagined. Inspired by fantasy and folklore yet grounded in Seattle’s noted landscape and landmarks, revered actor and playwright Justin Huertas (Lizard Boy) conjures up Pacific Northwest magic in this intimate new world premiere musical, Lydia and the Troll.
