ALCATRAZ THE ISLAND OF LOVE, book by Zazu Lein, music and lyrics by Billie Cox, directed by Billie Cox

It’s 1973 and ferry boats carry tourists from San Francisco to the Island of Alcatraz for the very first prison tour just as two beautiful Goddesses from the planet Venus crash land. Vonda and Vita, dressed in bathing suits and tiaras, of course, decide to honor their sacred Venutian code and stick around on a mission to spread the love just as two young people on a blind date, Marco and Jade, struggle to make a love match. To add to the magic, Marco’s matchmaking mother, Gina, and her 90-year-old sister, Aunt Teresa, rent a helicopter to land on Alcatraz to spy on Marco’s date. All these forces transform Alcatraz from an island of despair into…Alcatraz The Island Of Love.
