“One of New York’s gayest shows!  So good.  Genuinely funny.  Clever.  Sassy.

After playing to packed houses over Pride weekend, it should return soon.”

Bio

BOYS WILL BE BOYS — An OUT-rageous New Musical Revue was a smash when it premiered at the legendary Duplex Cabaret Theatre. It played to packed houses and overwhelming audience response.  The show was hailed for being “hysterical,” “incredibly witty,” “some of the funniest writing on any New York stage.” Peter Filichia of  TheaterMania.com raved, “The song ‘Giant’ is probably the best song I’ve heard by anyone all year” and “‘Happy & Gay’ should be heard by everyone around the country, whether gay or straight.”  BOYS was so successful that, after its premiere run, it was invited back — by popular demand — for a return engagement in honor of Gay Pride.

   In 2010, BOYS will receive its West Coast premiere with two productions, one in San Francisco and one in L.A.!


SHOW SYNOPSIS

Poor Ishmael Gonzalez suffers from Gay Attention Deficit Disorder, a condition that renders some gay men unable to stay focused on any trend for more than a few weeks. But, before you can say “Barney’s Warehouse Sale,” five of Ish’s friends skip to the rescue with a delicious (or disastrous) musical “fun-raiser” to benefit The Ishmael Gonzalez Fund to Fight Gay-D.D. The fundraiser-slash-cabaret revue is so successful that the friends are taking it on the road with a “Round the World in 80 Gays” tour to raise more money for the cause. In this hilarious, intimate evening, the performers expose themselves (sorta) and their views on love, the challenges of contemporary gay life, and the essential fabulosity of being gay.



BOYS WILL BE BOYS utilizes a unit set, five performers and one musician.
