Starmaker, the new play by Michael Leeds having its world premiere at Island City Stage imaginatively explores the supernova career of Rock Hudson, an incredibly handsome, but closeted, sailor who craved stardom. Henry Willson was a homely, openly gay, larger than life agent who groomed him and created a star. Hollywood dubbed them “beauty and the beast” but with Rock’s looks and Henry’s ruthless ambition, they reached the pinnacle of success. Then Henry fell in love with his creation and a life of lies led to final credits neither would have written. “Starmaker” begins previews tonight, with performances onThursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 5pm through September 8th at the home of Island City Stage, The Wilton Theatre Factory, 2304 N Dixie Hwy, Wilton Manors.
