Parking is difficult - we arrived very early to get on street parking. This produced a second problem - there is no place to eat or drink without a 30 minute wait in the area - the area is primarily studio industrial. Once we arrived at the theatre we were told the doors didn't open until 1:30 and we stood in the sun until 1:45 waiting to enter. Once we entered there were available drinks and snacks for donation - very nice - could take this into the theatre with us, but we were held out another 15 minutes and it was suggested we go outside because the lobby was full. Still suffering from heatstroke this was not positive. Once in the theatre we had great seats for viewing the play - sat in the back row - didn't mind.

7 vignettes with only several having some connections. Dilemma of being Gay well scripted. Cast excellent. Only few people in audience. A must see for the Gay community

revolver is a masterpiece...well, let me say a flawed masterpiece. It's a series of scenes loosely interrelated, all revolving around the use of guns. Couldn't ask for a more timely theme. Anyone, gay, straight, or otherwise will have no problem...continued
