Randy Bowser's dramatic musical adaptation of Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray," premiered in 2008 at Pentacle Theatre in Salem, Oregon.

 

Legendary Michael Butler, producer of the original "HAiR" on Broadway, saw the show and brought it to the attention of Russian cultural icon, Stas Namin, who loved it and soon had a translator working on a Russian version of the musical.

Ever since a spectacular premiere in 2010 at The Moscow International Performing Arts Center, "Dorian" has been part of the repertoire at The Stas Namin Theatre in Gorky Park.
