GayFest!

Media Title

GayFest! – the third annual festival of GLBT theater - will be held this year from August 6-24 at various theaters throughout Philadelphia. The gala opening includes a performance by the award-winning Kansas City-based “Cirque du Gay - Exposed” at Plays & Players, followed by a reception with the stars and after-party with entertainment at Tabu upstairs lounge. As the festival continues, four mainstage plays (two world premieres and two Philadelphia premieres) will be supplmented by ten "one night stands" of various kinds from music to theater to gay improv comedy. A new feature this year: Bloody Mary Brunch and Happy Hour staged readings at Tabu, where a mere $5 cover charge gets you a free drink and a chance to check out the hottest new gay/lesbian plays. This year’s GayFest! will take place at Plays & Players (Skinner Studio), Second Stage at the Adrienne, and the Playground at the Adrienne, with additional performances at Tabu upstairs lounge. The four mainstage plays: "Cold" (a world premiere lesbian play by hot young playwright Sarah Pappalardo); "The Homosexuals" (an alternately scathing/touching comedy by Philip Dawkins), "Someone Brought Me" (a world premiere commissioned from Daniel Talbott, author of "Slipping" and "Mike and Seth," and the only playwright represented in all three years of GayFest!), and "The New Century" (an uproarious comedy by Paul Rudnick, author of "Jeffrey").
