That CERTAIN Summer: A Review Of BOYS OF A CERTAIN AGE Comments (0)

I was lured to the Lower East Side for a second day in a row, this time to take in the new play Boys of a Certain Age, written by Dan Fingerman and directed by Dan Dinero. Part of the Fresh Fruit Festival, the 90-minute piece nails down four very different, very similar gay Jewish men sharing a tense weekend that's supposed to be a chance for old friends to get reacquainted and new acquaintances to become friends, but which winds up being a knock-down, drag-out examination of what motivates members of different gay generations.

Think of it as Boys in the Sand, if that porn movie hadn't stolen the title, because this beachside play has some of the verve of Boys in the Band and far more likable characters.

Legendary Actress Estelle Parsons Falls Ill, Play's Run Canceled Comments (0)

I was so sad when my buddy Greg texted me about this—Estelle Parsons, 88, who was indefatigable onstage in August, Osage County (2008) and whom 90I saw most recently in The Velocity of Autumn (2013)—fell ill during a performance of her acclaimed show Out of the Mouths of Babes... and the show's run has ended over it.

Via Playbill:

Estelle had been debilitated by the heat and felt ill at intermission. The remainder of the performance was cancelled and Estelle was taken to the hospital for care and observation overnigh. She left there with a clean bill of health and remains in good health, but upon further consultation with her long-time physician, it has been determined that it is inadvisable for her to resume the rigors of performing this two-act play. Under the circumstances, we regret that we must cancel the remainder of the play’s engagement. We love Estelle and want her to have the rest and peace of mind she needs.—Cherry Lane A.D. Angelina Fiordellisi

I hope she bounces back and is able to perform in the future.

Stage & Screen Actor John McMartin Dies @ 86 Comments (0)

RIP to John McMartin, the actor best known as the original Ben in Follies (1971)—he was that production's last surviving cast member—and for several other high-profile originating roles on Broadway. He died at age 86 of cancer this month.

McMartin appeared in innumerable important and well-remembered productions, including Sweet Charity (1966; he reprised his role in the film three years later), Don Juan (1972), The Visit (1973), Showboat (1994), Into the Woods (2002) and Grey Gardens (2006).

His most prominent film appearances was probably in All the President's Men (1976). He worked on the stage and on TV in 2015, when he popped up on an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt episode.

From Playbill:

Offstage, Mr. McMartin was far from the archetypal actor. Quiet, self-effacing and retiring, he disliked publicity and seldom gave interviews. He was a regular at Sardi’s, and the staff knew to leave him to himself. When asked in 2002 by Playbill about the laudatory reviews and honors that greeted his performance 043_-_The_Golden_Girls_-_Forgive_Me_Fatherin High Society, he replied, “I'm rather shy anyway. I feel uncomfortable. You don't like to be confronted. You'd rather overhear good things.”

Of course, to me, he'll always be the priest who cock-teased Dorothy on The Golden Girls (1987) and Simon Worthington from Madonna's Who's That Girl (1987).

BOYS Culture: New Play Touches On Orlando, Grindr, AIDS, The Closet & More Comments (0)

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 Boys_Image2Dan 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.

More info here!

Check it out July 16 @ 2 p.m., July 17 @ 7 p.m. and/or July 19 @ 6:30 p.m. Runs 90 minutes with no intermission.

Go Get 'em, Tiger!: Don't Miss The Tiger Tyson Play Comments (0)

S-l1600(Image via Latino Fan Club)

The show is called Confessions of a Homo Thug Porn Star: The Tiger Tyson Story, and the man himself—a hugely popular adult-film star from the '90s onward—will be in attendance. If you live in NYC, how can you consider missing it?

From a Fresh Fruit Festival press release:

Man, son, father, husband, businessman... Porn stars are people, too. From rags to prison to success—in the adult film industry. James Hardy's fast-clipped biography of the Brooklyn-born Blatino porn star tells it like it is. Raw. Saturday night's performance will feature an audience Q&A, with special guest: Tiger Tyson himself!

When I worked in porn (as a mag editor, not as anything else), Tiger was a big deal. Big as a horse, in fact. I'm not surprised his magnetism has generated a biographical stage show. Better get over there and see it—it's not gonna be livestreamed like She Loves Me.
