Ronnie Larsen's comedy explores the ins and outs of the gay porn business by following the lives of six people involved in it -- and the relationship complications that arise because of it. A hit off-Broadway, Making Porn takes place in San Francisco in the '80s where Jack, a straight actor desperate for work, takes a role in a gay porn film. Complications arise when Jack's wife discovers the truth about his new job and the producer's boyfriend/assistant falls in love with one of the actors. It's a show full of campy fun, and yes, there is nudity -- it's about the porn industry after all. But most audiences find that the laughs steal the show every time. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "Thanks to the work of director Stodard and the lovely performances of a three-man cast, The Drawer Boy is once again demonstrating the warmth, humor and loss contained in a compelling story ... Stodard has shaped her small cast into a cohesive ensemble. Gibbons is delightfully deadpan ... Kroczynski is moving and energized." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/11/05/3082873/thinking-cap-crafts-a-compelling.html"><em>Miami Herald</em></a>
- "An enormously powerful show" --<em>New Times </em>
- "Miles (Scott Douglas Wilson) and Angus (Mark Krozynski) are wonder in the play … a jigsaw puzzle of a comic drama… We are left with art's power to entertain on one level, but heal and transform on another." --<em>Sun Sentinel</em>

About the Ticket Supplier: Thinking Cap Theatre
Since its founding in 2010, Thinking Cap Theatre has brought a slice of NYC’s downtown theatre scene to downtown Fort Lauderdale. Thinking Cap has made a name for itself locally and nationally for tackling challenging works. The company’s artistic director Nicole Stodard was named Best Director by the New Times in 2012.
Thinking Cap is devoted to experimental, provocative, and socially-conscious work. We program plays that tell compelling stories in fresh and surprising ways. Thinking Cap also aims to engage with works that treat a range of identities more accurately reflective of today’s society; to dismantle norms and stereotypes through non-reactionary, honest means; and to present historical works that have rarely or never seen the light of the stage.
