KINK HAÜS Of Love: A Review Of Gunnar Montana's Queer Extravaganza Comments (0)

KH NY La MaMa Poster-1(Image via La MaMa)

Gunnar Montana's throbbing Kink Haüs, currently playing at La MaMa (66 E. 4th St., NYC) through October 6, is billed as fringe, but I came away thinking it was more mainstream than it realizes — and I think the patron who brought her 12-year-old daughter would agree with me.

Regardless of how out-there or in-here the show actually is, it's an attention-grabbing, joyful gender-romp that is athletically choreographed and a visual smorgasbord ...

More and more, people are displaying how ill-equipped they are to attend live theater, whether it's texting, talking on the phone, clambering onstage in search of the commode, or, now, unfurling a grotesque TRUMP 2020 banner at during the bows at Frozen in NYC.

Some rube did just that Wednesday evening, but he had his ass handed to him when fast-thinking cast member Tim Hughes snatched the banner out of the man's hands and tossed it backstage like the garbage it was.

On Facebook, Hughes responded to the incident by explaining his actions and refusing to apologize:

What does it say about our country and politics when a man at the show tonight felt the need to protest Disney’s Frozen on Broadway with a pro Trump flag?? How frightening is it that our show’s messages of love, acceptance, and diversity have become the opposition to supporting Trump? The curtain call is a thank you between actors and audience, a final connection to end a shared experience. I will not apologize for how I responded to the disrespectful man trying to interrupt this moment with a pathetic political platform. Not at our show! Not in front of my beautiful, diverse, talented cast at @frozenbroadway. I appreciate everyone’s support. #resist #lovewins #lovetrumpshate

Bravo, Tim.

Scott Thompson of The Kids in the Hall fame closed a three-night stand at Joe's Pub in NYC Sunday night with IMG_5817_new  Aprés le Déluge: The Buddy Cole Monologues, an interesting, aggressive set that rounded up pieces from the acerbic, terminally flamboyant character's entire existence.

Some of the older monologues retained their humor in spite of feeling dated,  including once-savage quips about HIV (“First, they said it was from poppers, so I didn't worry because I never used them. Then they said it was in semen. That gave me pause.”), but others felt more relevant than ever, and his newer pieces soared and scored.

RIP to Neil Simon, one of the absolute greats of the theater — and also an amazingly accomplished TV and movie writer. Full obit here.

Especially cruel that such a wit was felled by Alzheimer's disease, a terrible scourge we can only hope will be eradicated someday.
