Mantiques: WILD THINGS Pre-Union Comments (0)

Kevin-Bacon

Bob Deutsch sent me these sizzling photos of youngsters Kevin Bacon (b. July 8, 1958) and Matt Dillon (b. February 18, 1964), and I thought it would be nice to do a Wild Things (1996) match-up.

Which is your fave? 

Bob recalls that he shot Kevin on the roof of the brownstone on 82nd Street where Bob used to live. Bacon was in The Guiding Light (1980—1981) at the time. Despite being a soap actor, he declined to remove his shirt.

Dillon was shot at an apartment on 11th Street in the Village. Bob recalls he was 17 and “a really sweet boy!”

Dillon to come...

Keepin' It MIGHTY REAL: A Review Of That Must-See Sylvester Musical Comments (0)

MightyReal266Resolutely fabulous

BOY CULTURE REVIEW: ***1/2 out of ****

Sylvester (September 6, 1947—December 16, 1988) was a force of nature—he forced his nature on a world that was at times unwilling to accept him for the person he didn't choose to be, and for the MightyReal565person he chose to be. It's hard to imagine Sylvester's brand of authenticity bringing him success in the 1970s, but he had a good imagination because success is what he had. With some indelible disco classics and a refusal to play the game required of most other popular singers, he became a gay icon and an inspiration in his short life—he died of AIDS at 41.

In Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical, Anthony Wayne (who also wrote the book and is co-director and co-producer with his partner Kendrell Bowman) resurrects Sylvester, doing a damn fine job of disproving any notion that Sylvester was inimitable. In a performance that's informed by Wayne's obvious respect for the icon, he recalls without mimicking Sylvester's piercing falsetto in a string of soaring musical numbers that draw from the entertainer's entire oeuvre.

Margaret Hamilton

What a sweet autograph from the late, great Margaret Hamilton (December 9, 1902—May 16, 1985), aka the “Wicked Witch of the West” from The Wizard of Oz (1939). She was apparently a very kind lady in real life, and enjoyed her claim to fame to no end, unlike some stars who look back on their most famous roles with disdain.

The autograph could be yours here, and would be especially appropriate if your name is Gregory!
