2. THEATER: Homo the Musical!
B-movie director Lola RocknRolla, and acclaimed theater performer/director David Drake, are teaming up to bring one of the most sex-filled, gut-wrenching, dildo-throwing musical events ever seen at the New York Musical Theater Festival. Homo The Musical! tells the story of a gay alien from Planet Homo, who invades the religious mid-American town of Pleasant Valley Pines and sparks a city-wide sexual revolution that creates scandal among the most conservative of citizens. It’s campy, has a killer punk-rock score, and Drake (who is known for his Obie-winning performance in the longest-running solo show in New York theater history, The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me)will be directing this show. Homo The Musical! hits the stage on Tuesday at 8 p.m.; Thursday at 5 p.m. and 9 p.m., July 26 at 5 p.m., and July 27 at 9 p.m. (Get more details here.)
