After two sold-out performances of his one-man show “God Fights the Plague” at Cinnabar Theater last November, Petaluma actor Dezi Gallegos has taken the production to San Francisco. On Tuesday, March 4, he performs the show – already a sell-out – as part of the Marsh Theater’s Marsh Rising series, which showcases new talent.
The performance is also an audition for a run at the Marsh, “if it goes well,” Gallegos said.
The solo theatrical piece details his search for spirituality, and is truly a one-man show: Gallegos conceived, created and stars.
Since the November performances, he said it’s been completely reworked and rewritten. He’s still the author and star, but it’s been developed and directed by the Marsh’s Charlie Varron. “It’s changed one hundred percent: it’s a different show. The best monologues are still there, but now it’s more about my journey, grappling with a quest about faith.”
