From the press release:
Three summer weekends. Eight men. One endless friendship.
LOVE! VALOUR! COMPASSION!
With Rick Felkins, Kirk Kelso, Scott Poppaw, Marco Bazan,
Dax Dobbs, Ryan Wilson, and Ty McLeod.
Directed by City Theatre guest director Matthew Burnett.
The City Theatre Company continues to sizzle this summer with Terrence McNally’s
critically acclaimed play Love! Valour! Compassion, opening July 31. Hailed by many
critics as McNally at the top of his form and winner of the Tony Award for Best Play, the
celebrated Broadway show is directed by Matthew Burnett and runs four weekends
through August 23. Lots of laughs and love with live theatre not to be missed!
Love! Valour! Compassion! centers on eight gay men who vacation together at an
upstate New York country home for three summertime holiday weekends. Gregory, the
host of the gatherings, is a successful but aging choreographer trying to complete what
may be his last major work. Bobby, his blind and much younger live-in boyfriend loves
him but is still discovering who he is and what he wants from the world. John is a cynical,
mean-spirited, failed English playwright. His twin brother, James, is as kind and
compassionate as John is angry and alienated. Ramon is John’s current boyfriend, a
young, handsome, and talented dancer just beginning his career, filled with confidence
and brimming with sexuality. Perry and Arthur are the group’s “role models” and are
often the force of stability in an otherwise chaotic world. Finally, there is Buzz, highly
charged and hilarious, always ready with a sarcastic one-liner, and is usually the life of
the party. However, he is masking his troubled spirit. The friends gather together to
confront their lives, loves and friendships, exploring the boundaries of their relationships
and some of life’s most profound and difficult questions.
