Forever Hold His Peace: A Review Of DANIEL'S HUSBAND Comments (0)

Early on in Daniel's Husband — a new play by Michael McKeever, directed by Joe Brancato at the beautiful Cherry Lane Theatre — I started to sink in my seat. An opening scene at a bougie gay dinner party peopled by a generic crabby writer and his generic architect lover, and an aging lothario with his never-seen-a-vinyl-album-in-person twink date mate of two weeks, had me convinced I was about to see a play I had already seen 100 times or more.

Instead, the stock characters began to flesh out in unexpected ways, the familiar banter (featuring several too many jokes about dating younger men) became less pat. Soon, the play's entire equilibrium was disrupted by the arrival of the kind of overbearing mom any early shrink would have referred to as a confirmed-bachelor-maker, and something had changed.

Well, Hello, Bette! Comments (0)

Seeing Bette Midler in Hello, Dolly! next week — can't wait. 

I've never even seen this show, nor have I ever seen the movie. I know, I know. There are some holes in my gay past. I did know about the show as a kid, thanks to this:

I'm particularly interested at this time, having finished Carleton Carpenter's excellent autobiography, in which he recalls touring with the show opposite Mary Martin (whom he loved) and Ginger Rogers (seemingly, less so).

Check Out My Q&A with Carleton Carpenter!

That got me thinking about all the women who've played Dolly. With a hat tip to Richard Skipper's invaluable Call on Dolly ...
