After enjoying packed performances in Ventura, Santa Barbara and Palm Desert, California, former Hells Angels leader George Christie is set to bring his new one-man show, "Outlaw," to the Art Square Theatre in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 22-24.

The production, which chronicles Christie's nearly 40-year reign as head of the Ventura chapter of the Hells Angels, will be his first public appearance in the city since last fall, when he appeared at the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement (a.k.a. the Mob Museum) to sign copies of his memoir, "Exile on Front Street: My Life as a Hells Angel...and Beyond." The book served as the basis for the new theatrical production.

"The book has a lot of inside information about the Hells Angels, but the one-man show is more personal," Christie said. "I also talk about what's happened in my life, since I left the club in 2011."

During his years with the Hells Angels, Christie survived prison, multiple investigations, prosecutions and assassination attempts. Through it all, he considered himself to be a peacemaker in the outlaw biker community.

Written and directed by Richard La Plante, "Outlaw" received standing ovations during its world premiere run in Southern California.

"I wasn't sure what to expect, especially in Ventura, where I was controversial for many years," Christie said. "I tried to keep things peaceful, when I ran the Ventura chapter of the Hells Angels, but a lot of people, especially in the local business community and law enforcement, didn't like us. I was pleasantly surprised to receive such a positive reception in my old stomping ground."

"I think most people who had a problem with George in the past, realize that it was a long time ago," La Plante said. "George has put the controversies behind him. That's what the show is about."

"Outlaw" is produced by Charles Lago in association with DTLA Entertainment Group.
