No Bone Unturned: A Trip To The Leslie-Lohman's Current Exhibit Of Gay Erotic Art Comments (0)

Robert-RichardsThe incomparable Robert Richards, curator of Stroke

Stroke-gay-artTwo of my buddies (a friend recently replied to a text in which I used that word with a simple, sarcastic "buddy") and I met up at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in SoHo on Friday night to check out the opening reception for Robert W. Richards's highly anticipated new show, dedicated to the gay erotic art produced to adorn porn mags from the '50s until now. Stroke: From Under the Mattress to the Museum Walls is on view from now through May 25, 2014, and it's a must-see if you're intrigued by erotic art or even if you just fondly remember a time when, minus a man, your best bet at carnal gratification would have been with a non-judgmental glossy magazine.

The Booty Trip: A Review Of Mike Albo's THE JUNKET Comments (0)

Mike-Albo-The-JunketDon't screw—or screw—Mike Albo...he'll Taylor Swift-boat you onstage, and you'll deserve it.

BOY CULTURE REVIEW: **** out of ****

Mike Albo's one-man, one-hour (and change) show The Junket at Culture Project/Lynn Redgrave Theatre is far more entertaining than any of the many actual junkets I've been on, and I've been to Disney World with an entertainment reporter who filed a police report when a free fruit basket allegedly disappeared from his room. Devious maids!

He Sang/She Sang: A Review Of BROADWAY BACKWARDS Comments (0)

New York's LGBT Center and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS will receive $423,182 from the annual Broadway Backwards event, held last night at the Hirshfeld. I'd never gone before, but Broadway-Backwardsgrabbed a friend (well, tried, but the young ones are fast) and hiked to the mezz to see a unique show in which Broadway performers sing songs originally intended for the opposite gender. Which reminds me: God, I miss that TV show Turnabout with Sharon Gless.

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

But back to the matter at hand: Broadway Backwards started a bit creakily, with an oddly unfunny sketch that had a dark tone and an inexplicable Christmas theme. But aside from some of the skits being a bit trying, every vocal performance was a treat, including great contributions from Bryan Batt, Beth Leavel, Billy Porter (who was calmly Kodama Sushi-ing moments before the show began), Stephanie J. Block and more.

Probably the most successful skit was Colin Hanlon, Stephen Bienskie and Max von Essen's head-for-biz-bod-for-sin same-sex romance that played out to the strains of "Been a Long Day." Have always wished I could see them do a three-way, but probably should have been more specific when wishing for it.
