Writer and performer Luca Torrens brings Howdy, Stranger to Orlando Fringe Festival

Written and performed through the lens of a queer experience by Miami based artist, Luca Torrens, “Howdy, Stranger” is a one-person cowboy comedy which uses music, puppetry and humor to answer the question: How far will a person go for love and respect?

“Best of Fringe'' Award Winner in the 2023 San Fran Fringe, “Howdy, Stranger” is a one person musical comedy which uses the power of tequila, puppetry and dangerously catchy show tunes to answer the question: How far will a person go for love and respect?


We follow a queer lawman named Jean who strives to become the new county deputy, despite being a fool and insufferable theatre kid. When an outlaw steals his only friend (Oscar Nominated Buttermilk the Horse), Jean embarks on a rivetin’ romp through the West to face gunslingin’ outlaws and disturbingly handsome criminals with nothin’ but a smile and a song (while trying not to get shot and killed to death).


 “Howdy, Stranger” is full of laughs, tears, and shockingly deep themes (We are not liable for any Daddy Issues that may or may not surface).


Written, performed and glitter glued together by Miami based artist, Luca Torrens, this show is for those struggling to find their place in the world but especially to queer youth to whom acceptance is everything


 “Howdy, Stranger” is being performed select dates from May 18 - 25 at the Pnk Venue - Orlando Shakespeare Theater, 812 E. Rollins St. Orlando.


The duration of the show is 60 mins, with tickets available form $6 - $15. The show is suitable from ages 13+, and contains mature themes and violence.
