No matter what anybody says, we don’t believe in the notion of “too much of a good thing.”
Except maybe hot Krispy Kreme donuts. We’ve learned the hard way that three’s our max.
But when it comes to Uptown Players, we always want more and this week that’s what they’re giving us. MORE in the form of two separate shows over the next two weekends.
First up is the one-man Off-Broadway smash Bright Colors and Bold Patterns starring our beloved Paul J. Williams (above) as Gerry, a cranky guest at a gay wedding who’s upset at the grooms’ request for “no bright colors or bold patterns.” Is being gay today all about assimilation or can we still be flamboyant and who we really are? You might find the answers here.
Also debuting is Cooties, a sitcom-style comedy that tackles many of the taboo sides of sex that nobody wants to talk about. Produced by Flexible Grey Theatre Company, the show features an ensemble cast (pictured at top of story) delivering plenty of LOL moments and a few sad-face emoji ones, too.
Both productions take place in the intimate Bryant Hall Stage space, so make sure to snag tickets now.
Because this month, Uptown Players will be twice as nice.
