Happy Monday ManPlay-ers! I hope you had a great weekend and got up to some gay dating adventures. Mine was lovely and relaxing and I’m happy to be back in the office reading all of your emails that piled up over the weekend. It certainly sounds like some of you are very busy searching for your own gay Romeo! Keep up the hunt!
We’ve told you about the upcoming reading of a play about Proposition 8 with an all-star cast. In case you can’t make it for that one-time-only staging, there’s another production heading to Off-Broadway that is fantastic as well. Called Standing On Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays, it has already been staged in LA and I was lucky enough to attend with my partner. It features a rotating cast, and while the NY cast has yet to be announced, I hope that Queer as Folk star Peter Paige (pictured) will appear in it again, as he was fantastic the night I attended.
The show is a series of nine short one-act plays by many famous writers including Neil LaBute and Paul Rudnick. Previews are planned for NY starting on October 8th and officially opens on the 24th of that month so you have about a month to get your calendars sorted to choose a date for tickets. As marriage equality continues to be a frustrating search for us gay men (and women) it’s nice to go see a play that manages to make important material funny and illuminating at the same time. As well, a portion of the proceeds will be going to organizations for marriage equality, so your fun night out is also helping the cause. Highly recommended!
