Winner of the 2003 Tony Award for Best Play
Darren Lemming has it all and then some. He is the epitome of a baseball star…handsome, charismatic, rich, infallible and every guy’s all-American hero. But when Darren comes out of the closet he sets off a chain of events that upends everything and threatens to undermine the American pastime. Powerful, lyrical, and often hysterically funny, this play is a rhapsody that no lover of the sport—or of theatre—should miss.
Contains nudity and strong language
P.S. Thanks to fipines for the tip
Your friendly “Take Me Out” whore has known about this current production for quite some time
http://1ststagespringhill.org/ . This is a new theater group located in Tyson’s Corner, VA (a mall suburb of Washington, DC – now accessible by Metro on the new Silver Line.) I was hesitant to see this production because the audition announcement said “partial nudity may be required.” I am generally not interested in this play unless the full monty is clearly promised. The picture of the stage also showed the shower area hidden by a privacy screen. I have seen so many botched and bastardized productions of this play that I decided not see it. Today, however, I read four reviews. 2 mentioned “extensive male frontal nudity; 1 mentioned “fortunately the shower scene was blocked by a partition so the audience could focus on the excellent acting instead of penises” and 1 mentioned,”while the extensive male nudity of this play was controversial when the play opened in New York 10 years ago, it is no longer an issue.” The director also said he thought he would get calls complaining about nudity on the stage in conservative Fairfax Co., but all the calls he has received are for directions to the theater. All reviews, however, stated this production is excellent with top notch actors and should not be missed. This whore was torn but eventually gave into his base desires and bought tickets for next Saturday. Will give you the dick report then.
