Italy Comes to the Village; Nellie Does Molinsky

Italy Comes to the Village; Nellie Does Molinsky

BY DAVID NOH For the month of December, Film Forum is offering a selection of post-World War II movies shot in Italy, for its series “Roman Hollywood: American Movies go to Italy.” Those years were booming in terms of cinema, with American filmmakers attracted by the lure of tax breaks, cheaper production costs, Rome’s own […]

Vivian Reed’s Boldly Wide Range

Vivian Reed’s Boldly Wide Range

BY DAVID NOH | In show business, there are no divas held in higher regard than Lena Horne. So, if anyone even entertains the notion of doing a project on her, like, say, Leslie Uggams or Vanessa Williams, they’d better be able to fill her Ferragamos. Such a one is definitely that total bombshell of a […]

A Korean-American Girl’s Tale

A Korean-American Girl’s Tale

BY DAVID NOH | Korean-born Soomi Kim is a firmly established actor and movement artist, whose past performance pieces have tackled some big subjects. “Dictee” was an adaptation of the seminal 1982 book about women throughout history struggling, at great personal cost, against long odds in their societies, written by Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, who herself […]

La Dulcet Musto

La Dulcet Musto

BY TRAV S. D. | There may have been more powerful columnists in the history of American journalism than Michael Musto, but none was ever more adored, for he radiates a personality and humor as great as — and often greater than — the celebrities he covers. For nearly 30 years (1984-2013), his Village Voice column […]

I’ll Sing ‘Em All and We’ll Stay All Night

I’ll Sing ‘Em All and We’ll Stay All Night

BY TRAV S.D. | This month and next, cabaret fans will have a rare chance to catch up with a New York cabaret star of the 1970s and ‘80s, Linda Glick, when she plays Pangea with her new show “Teach Me Tonight.” Back in the day, Glick was a mainstay of such venues as Les Mouches, […]

Divas and Tough Guys

Divas and Tough Guys

BY DAVID NOH | I don’t think I am alone in regretting that I was not in New York in 1962 to catch Judy Garland’s much-lauded Carnegie Hall concert. I am able to say, however, that I was at the Nederlander Theatre this past Sunday, September 24, to see Patti LuPone at the Broadway Cares/ Equity […]

Back to the Joys of Deep Disco

Back to the Joys of Deep Disco

BY DAVID NOH | One of the great pleasures of this life we know as gay — indeed, a veritable coming out rite of passage for many — is dancing in a club to some truly fabulous music. I was lucky to come of age in the immediate post-Stonewall era, when disco was being born, shaking […]

Fearless and Funny

Fearless and Funny

BY GARY M. KRAMER | Out gay comedian Eddie Sarfaty thinks everything is funny: family, relationships, politics, annoying people, really annoying people, pets, his own neuroses, other people’s neuroses, self-doubt. The list goes on and on. “If there is anything so horrible that you can’t make fun of it, I don’t ever want to know what […]

The Women He Loves

The Women He Loves

BY GARY M. KRAMER | Seth Sikes has a powerful, elegant voice, which he uses to sing standards made famous by Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, and Barbra Streisand, among a bevy of beloved divas. Sikes doesn’t try to perform like the divas who are his heroes; his show, instead, is his own personal tribute to them. […]

Sex and Death: Read All About It!

Sex and Death: Read All About It!

BY TRAV S.D. |For someone who can’t be pigeonholed — humorist? playwright? poet? clown? comedian? performance artist? horror writer? LGBTQ icon? — the phenomenon of nature known to the public as Dandy Darkly is totally distinctive. Living fully up to his pseudonym, Darkly is a Southern Gothic steampunk grotesque given to flamboyant recitations and flights […]
