Jorja invested in Dr. Jekyll beer, and they need your help!
In case the world doesn’t end today, did you ever wonder how Jorja got involved in Forever Dusty?
How long have you been working on this show
About 7 years ago, I started to listen heavily to her music, watching videos and reading anything I could get my hands on. I wrote monologues in her voice and sang her songs at an open mic night at The Gardenia Club in West Hollywood. I won a screenwriting grant at University of Southern California and used that to get some musical charts in order and prototype a show. We performed the show once at USC and Jorja Fox from CSI was there and decided she wanted to be involved. She helped bring the idea to The Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center, part of the Gay and Lesbian Center in LA. We had a small successful run there but I knew the final frontier was New York. We’ve overcome some incredible obstacles; it is a dream come true to be running FOREVER DUSTY at New World Stages.
