"Les Deux" at Fringe Fest Hollywood

Hi There! 

This is Gabi Conti, Jaclyn Marfuggi, and Dara Laine. In these difficult and divided times we're living in, it's important to support artistic endeavors that unite and elevate us all as a culture...

What better way to do that than to help us fund our show about Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton?


Les Deux You Remember This? 
is a jukebox musical about Hollywood's best worst decade: the early 2000's.


The show is a fanfiction account of one iconic evening in November 2006.  When Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton go out for a night of partying at the famed club Les Deux, they discover that their Bentley can travel through time. After looking into the future and seeing where their careers are, they decide to go back in the past to fix their mistakes and save their reputations. 

Perez Hilton narrates this romp where you can expect Juicy Couture tracksuits, Uggs, and wigs, wigs, wigs, honey! Plus cabaret-style twists on early aughts pop hits by Rihanna, Hilary Duff, Ashlee Simpson, and of course, Britney, Lindsay, and Paris.

We want to take this show to the stage during the Hollywood Fringe Fest, coming up this June! 

The only problem is that putting a show up at the Fringe costs boo-koo bucks. Unlike Paris, none of us have a trust fund to pay for it! That's where you come in!
