Art Isn’t Easy

Art Isn’t Easy

BY CHRISTOPHER BYRNE | Terrence McNally’s spellbinding new play “Fire and Air,” now at CSC, is ostensibly about the impresario Sergei Diaghilev, the fate of his Ballets Russes, and his artistic and sexual relationship with dancer Vaslav Nijinsky. As a chronicle of early 20th century art and a study of a complicated genius, it’s fascinating on […]

Boys and The Band

Boys and The Band

BY CHRISTOPHER BYRNE |  I think everyone in their roster of friends knows someone like Gerry. (I can tick off at least three.) Gerry is the kind of oversized neurotic who blows into a room like a tornado and promptly sucks all the air out of it. Every sentence feels like a performance, and it’s […]

Chloë Sevigny Fears Him

Chloë Sevigny Fears Him

BY DAVID NOH  | Definitely one of the Bright Young Things of Los Angeles, hilarious Drew Droege was discovered on the Internet, impersonating, of all people, Chloë Sevigny. Sharing a slightly similar equine mien with that long-lipped, terminally hip downtown muse, Droege has her glacial been-everything, done-everything blasé manner nailed. Even when nattering incomprehensibly and dropping […]

Song of Himself

Song of Himself

BY DAVID KENNERLEY | The spate of first-time revivals of groundbreaking gay-themed shows continues. In recent seasons, “The Normal Heart,” “Lips Together, Teeth Apart,” and “Falsettos” have all returned to major New York stages with varying degrees of success. This season, “M. Butterfly” is back on Broadway for the first time, and “Angels in America” is […]

LGBT For BdB Reconvenes at the Cutting Room

LGBT For BdB Reconvenes at the Cutting Room

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | In August 2013, as Bill de Blasio was just starting what turned into a meteoric rise from the back of the pack to a smashing victory in that year’s Democratic mayoral primary, an energized crowd of LGBTQ supporters turned out for a fundraiser at the Cutting Room on East 32nd Street headlined […]

A Wow Crowd at Jim Owles!

A Wow Crowd at Jim Owles!

The Jim Owles Liberal Democratic Club held a splashy Pride Awards ceremony at the Flatiron home of former Public Advocate Mark Green on June 5. Honorees included the renowned sex therapist Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer; actor Denis O’Hare, a Tony-winner for “Take Me Out”; Randy Florke, recognized for his work as a prison rights activist; […]

The Giddy Side of Greed

The Giddy Side of Greed

BY DAVID KENNERLEY | With a massive ensemble bursting with Broadway-caliber comedic talent, it’s hard to imagine how they got any work done during rehearsals of the latest revival of “The Government Inspector,” Nikolai Gogol’s goofy farce about greed run amok. Lead by the irrepressible Michael Urie (the former “Ugly Betty” star who’s been on […]

His Roots Are Showing

His Roots Are Showing

BY DAVID KENNERLEY | Playwright Douglas Carter Beane may have made it big, with a pack of works on Broadway in recent years, but he hasn’t forgotten his roots. His latest comedy, “Shows for Days,” inspired by his own adolescence in the early 1970s, recalls finding refuge –– and a measure of love –– in a […]

On Point

On Point

BY MICHAEL SHIREY | The Point Foundation, the largest scholarship organization working to support talented LGBT students, held its annual Point Honors Gala April 7 at the New York Public Library. Founded in 2001, the foundation provides financial support, comprehensive mentorship programs, leadership training, and community service opportunities. This year’s gala honored Dr. Neal Baer, executive […]

2013 Aggie Awards Warm Up Winter

2013 Aggie Awards Warm Up Winter

BY DAVID NOH | We honor Agnes Moorehead annually with awards in her name for the best live performances of the year because there was no actress more versatile than she. Recent viewings of two of her films confirmed this for me once again — unnecessary as that was. In the classic, essential women’s jail drama […]
