Actors preparing to mount a gay musical are confronted by excited protesters in this crazy-quilt of light entertainment, stitched together by ASCAP Award-winning writer/director Chip Deffaa. A hit in its first festival tryout, this playful production features a talented and good-looking cast of 10. And a rich array of gay songs, both old and new.
The author of 16 published plays, Deffaa's past successes at the 13th Street Rep include "Theater Boys" and "Irving Berlin's America." The premiere recording of "Mad About the Boy" is coming soon!
Tickets are $30 / $20 for students/seniors

BED BUGS AND BEYOND
Written By: Mark Blickley Directed by: Joe Battista
Bed Bugs and Beyond is a vulgar Hemoglobic Fantasy with lofty intent. NYC is currently facing a bed bug scourge and these frightening creatures are even more horrific when one extensively researches their violent and perverse sex lives that are a wonderful metaphor for the political attacks currently being waged against women and gay citizens.
The play offers up a self-proclaimed exterminating angel, a victimized female bed bug fighting to correct injustices, a bed bug of questionable gender, and a male bed bug fueled by testosterone poisoning.
Seniors and Students $12

“It’s better than the SpongeBob movie!” Sophia, age 6
“Rapunzarella White is everything a kids show should be: Colorful, fun, inclusive, and totally delightful! It is a clever spin on three fairy tales that all of us know and love. Plus, the music and lyrics are smart and sharply performed by a talented group of actors.”
~ Jack Hyman, Author of "Breakfast with the Birds"
“My daughter and I saw Rapunzarella White this weekend and loved it! She walked out and immediately said she wanted to see it again. This is the first time she's felt that way about a show....It really felt like the kind of show I saw and loved as a kid. Not so easy to find anymore.”
~ Vivian Connolly, a NYC mom
“This winning musical is clever, sarcastic and will have your children enthralled.”
~ Suzanna Bowling, Reviewer, Times Square Chronicles

The Accidental Pervert
By Andrew Goffman
Directed by Charles Messina
This side-splitting one-man show tells the true story of a boy whose odyssey into manhood begins after discovering his father’s XXX-rated video tapes, which become an ever-present part of his life.
Andrew Goffman takes his audience on a self-deprecating journey into a world of video vixens, personal fantasies, and dirty movies with no redeeming value whatsoever. But he does find redemption for himself, in the end, through real-life relationships and a perspective that comes with time, distance, and an outrageous sense of humor.
AUDIENCES ARE SAYING:
"Comically, it was a FIVE-STAR performance."
“OK. We only laughed for 80 of 90 minutes!”
“This show was absolutely hysterical! It's a definite MUST SEE! “
"It's been a long time since I've had this much fun!"
THEATRE BLOG AT LEILABRANDT.COM:
This is a coming of age memoir about sex, the loss of innocence, and exchange of values that comes to us all with maturity. The subject is a cache of pornography, discovered by 11 year old Andrew and the role it plays in his life until fantasy gives way to a better reality. It could be anyone's story. The Accidental Pervert is a delightful evening out; come for the fun.
