PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION:

Set in Paris in 1971, THE LIZARD KING is a two act play by Jay Jeff Jones, inspired by The Lost Paris Tapes.   Bloated, boozy, sick and cynical, DOORS frontman Jim Morrison is still a ferociously dangerous poet.   Compelled to spill his white-hot passions into a tape recorder, words pour out of him as if dictated by a higher force; his intense, troubled relationship with Pam Courson, along with recollections of his friend and romantic rival Tom Baker are blended into the fabulous and chaotic world of gods and monsters that propelled Jim to his spectacular stardom.  Production features extensive puppetry and special effects.
