Disillusionment Meets Literary Allusion in ‘The Untitled Unauthorized Hunter S. Thompson Musical’

by Cassiopeia Guthrie, September 17, 2023


Contraceptives, literate children, funding for the arts, radical mercy, and weed. The demands of The Untitled Unauthorized Hunter S. Thompson Musical are specific and intentional, told through the life story and experiences (real or fabricated) of the infamous titular Gonzo journalist himself. The production, a world premiere with music and lyrics by Joe Iconis and book by Joe Iconis and Gregory S. Moss, catches the wild ride that is Thompson’s career and pairs it with a vibrant rock score. The musical runs at La Jolla Playhouse through October 8.
