I was excited to receive word of the new play Boys of a Certain Age, which is being staged at The Wild Project (195 E. Third Ave. NYC) this month. The play follows a group of gay Jewish men spending a weekend together, and is set on the day it opens, meaning it covers not only recent developments like Grindr and the 2016 election, but will also likely be the first play to touch on the mass shooting in Orlando.
From a press release:
ELR Productions is proud to present the world premiere of Boys of a Certain Age from the acclaimed team of playwright Dan Fingerman and director Dan Dinero. This moving play addresses intergenerational gay relationships and issues facing the LGBT community and is the first collaboration between Fingerman and Dinero since the widely praised 2011 production The Austerity of Hope. The show will run at The Wild Project, at 195 East 3rd St, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan from June 16 to 19.
Ira and Larry were Hebrew school classmates who took different paths in life. Ira came out and moved to the city; Larry got married, had a family and came out later in life. Now they're spending one memorable weekend together with Larry's son Bryan, Ira's nephew Christopher and a whole lot of gay history.
I know and am familiar with the work of Marc Sinoway (Hunting Season), and the rest of the cast is made up of Brian Gligor, R. Scott Williams and Joseph J. Menino.
