Magic Michael

Magic Michael

BY DAVID NOH | I’ll start with a confession, and some of you may relate: I was hesitant to interview Michael Urie. He’s so very talented, smart, funny, and handsome that I thought — in a very special and gay insecure way — “He’s got to be a bitch.” What a pleasure, then, to report that […]

Foxy Ladies

Foxy Ladies

BY DAVID KENNERLEY | Lillian Hellman’s “The Little Foxes” has one of the juiciest female roles in American theater: Regina Giddens, a greedy matriarch conniving for control of the family cotton business in Alabama at the turn of the 20th century. None other than Tallulah Bankhead originated the Broadway role; in revivals, Anne Bancroft, Elizabeth Taylor, […]

The Fur is Flying

The Fur is Flying

BY CHRISTOPHER BYRNE | As Gus the theater cat sings in the splendid revival of “Cats” now back on Broadway, “The theater is certainly not what it was.” Aging Gus’ glory days were a highpoint in art, quite lost in all the modernity of a world that, not incidentally, has passed him by.

What’s up with that? What’s up is Daniel Sullivan’s […]

Mostly known for lavish interiors and finely wrought details, here […]

Randy and Renee

Randy and Renee

BY DAVID NOH | Randy Harrison is forever burned into the consciousness of a gay generation for playing Justin Taylor, the ultimate irresistibly innocent twink on the groundbreaking TV series “Queer as Folk.” Since that show wrapped in 2005, he’s carved out a solid theatrical career for himself in New York and regionally, and is now […]

Laughing at the Right and Wrong Moments

Laughing at the Right and Wrong Moments

BY CHRISTOPHER BYRNE | A director has two choices when casting a man in a female role –– either play it straight and create a realistic character and a commentary on conventional gender roles or go for camp and hilarity. Dan Wackerman, in directing the Peccadillo Theater Company’s revival of the 1926 play “The Silver Cord,” […]
