Theatre 3 begins its 49th season this summer, and the line-up includes plenty of gay and gay-friendly content. In addition to shows under the auspices of folks like Terry Dobson and Bruce Coleman, the slate features these productions:
Songs from an Unmade Bed. This cycle of songs by lyricist Mark Campbell includes music from a variety of composers, including Jake Heggie, whose Moby-Dick is at the Winspear now. Opens Sept. 3 (in Theatre Too).
33 Variations. This hit from last year’s Broadway season was written by Laramie Project creator Moises Kaufman. Opens Sept. 30.
Tales from Mount Olympus. A puppet show premiere from local playwright-director Bruce R. Coleman. Opens Oct. 29 (in Theatre Too).
The Drowsy Chaperone. The best score Tony winner from a few seasons back is a slap-happy valentine to the giddy joy of bubble-gum Broadway musical, with a gay narrator recounting with catty enthusiasm his favorite old-time musical. Opens Dec. 2.
Why Torture is Wrong and the People Who Love Them. This new comedy by gay playwright Christopher Durang gets props for its title alone. Opens March 11 (in Theatre Too).
