The De-Gaying of Broadway

Don't get me wrong... there is still plenty of gay out there on Broadway, but I'm about to fall to the floor and weep for the loss of yet another favorite show, Legally Blonde.

So... once again... the recurring theme of this blog as of late... is GO SEE THESE SHOWS BEFORE THEY CLOSE!

Here, I'll make it easy for you. Visit to buy your tickets to this show now.

And then be sure to buy Xanadu and [title of show] before they are gone as well.

[title of show] closing... sigh

So, in one week, two of my favorite shows on Broadway have posted their closing notices... and they are closing on the same day.

First, Xanadu. (Jump back a few days here.) And now [title of show].

I might just have to curl up in the corner and rock myself to sleep as I cry.

Ok, that's a smidge dramatic but still.

If you haven't seen either show please go see them now. They are lots of fun, very irreverent, and each take shots at musical theatre in a way that no other show can (or would be allowed) to do - except maybe Forbidden Broadway (who is ALSO taking an extended hiatus this winter... argh!)

And here I was all excited about International Talk Like a Pirate Day and then this. Lame.

ARGH MATEYS! It's "International Talk Like a Pirate Day!"

Ever dreamed of sailing the seven seas, wind whistling past your mast, waves sloshing the salty blue against your boards? Well... today you can... sort of.

It's International Talk Like a Pirate Day! So avast ye hearties, yo ho!

Batten the hatches and set sail. Not sure HOW to talk like a pirate (because you've never seen Hollywood's version of the piratey-life?) Check out the official "how to" at the International Talk Like a Pirate Day website.

You'll be swearin' like a sailor in no time flat!

Legally Brown: Episode 2

Episode 2 of "Legally Brown: The Search for the Next Piragua Guy" is on Youtube. It is so FRICKIN' funny I could just spit. But that's nasty. Instead, I did a little dance on the sofa. For $40 I'll do it at parties. Until you have $40, watch the clip below and enjoy with me.

Suddenly, the wheels are in motion... straight outta town!

It is officially the saddest day in the theatre industry. Xanadu has announced its closing.

I love this show. I mean, I could eat this show for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a midnight snack. Fourth meal? Screw you Taco Bell! Serve me up some Xanadu in a to-go bag and I'm set.

But alas, the fires of Hephaestus will soon be snuffed. Sigh. But it will at least skate across America in it's national tour, starting in LaJolla.

So, point being... if you haven't seen it, go NOW. If you have seen it and loved it, go NOW. If you saw it, didn't care for it, go BACK!

Hell, it would even make the Lehman Brothers forget there current woes. (Although this probably didn't make them laugh.)

Welcome to the Lavender House, Madam Vice-President

If only McCain's new VP running mate was her doppleganger, I'd be in gay heaven.
