A satirical look at the scandalous world of young celebrityhood, acclaimed playwright Douglas Carter Beane's comedy playfully exposes the challenges of being gay in Hollywood, as a rising movie star gets pulled in all directions by his spin-doctor agent, the sexy "rent-boy" who's caught his eye and the rent-boy's naïve and needy girlfriend -- not to mention the photographers who track their every move. In its off-Broadway run, this risqué romp was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award and after moving to Broadway, it earned a Tony nomination for Best Play. Learn More

Orlando, a stage adaptation of Virginia Woolf's novel, is a play that attempts to understand and explain the roles of men and women, especially women, from Elizabethan times to the early 20th century As a literary work, it falls somewhat short because Woolf's novel didn't anticipate the drastic changes to take place in sex roles afterward. However, as a work of stagecraft, it is a brilliant vehicle for a talented cast, such as that of Theater On The Run. Although the supporting actors performed brilliantly, the play belonged to the young actress who played the title character, calling for her to switch from male in the first half to female in the second half. It was breathtaking just to see her work. Go, if you can!
By Virginia Woolf
