Strap-On Broadway

I’m not much for plays. Maybe I’m too much of a country rube to enjoy them but unless a friend is performing in the play I really don’t enjoy them.

I saw “August: Osage County” this past year. It won the Tony for best play of 2008. After seeing it I think that means the rest of the plays in 2008 must have been pretty damn shitty.

There is one play this weekend that I may reconsider my personal ban on all things theatrical. It’s a play about strap-ons.

“Peg-Ass-Us” will be playing this weekend and this weekend only (or so it seems) at The Brick Theater in Brooklyn. Tickets and more information here.

The show is described: “A tale of boy-meets-girl, but the whole involves much more than the sum of their parts! In a no-holes-barred sexploration of pegging, these lovers sing, dance and tease along the delicious line between fetish/preference, queer/straight, wrong and oh-so right…

And:

“A charming duo, set out to spread the word about the pleasures of prostate stimulation and strap-on sex. They start with the facts, but once in the deep end their personal differences play tug-of-war with the lesson plan, pulling sex from silly to serious, between kink and dignity, and wrangling over issues of gender, sexual identity and personal desires. Armed with original songs, dance, puppetry, drag, physical comedy and audience participation, the two lovers turn their bedroom and hearts inside out for the world to see. And take off their clothes.”

I’m really debating on going. I can’t make the Friday show but the Sunday show may be possible if I were to skip out on another kink event. Hell maybe I’ll just wait outside the theater to take the names of the women coming out.

Yeah, that wouldn’t be creepy at all.

*cough* like I said, if you need a poor escort who loves the ass, I’m around….

Sounds like a fun show! You should definitely go and tell us about it!

so kink and dignity are opposites huh?

:O Darn, that sounds like it’d be really interesting! I wish I lived closer to NYC!

I especially like the bit about audience participation. Think you should bring lube?

I’m going to see this tomorrow night.
The reviews seem good, and I’ll let you know what I think of it.
It does sound fun, and is supposed to be funny!

John Leo, the show’s creator, is a fun performer who is very comfortable pushing his own boundaries. He brought a different show to Minneapolis and I emailed asking that he bring Peg-Ass-Us as well. I hope you go and then report back!

The play last night was FANTASTIC! It was fun, funny, and truly enjoyable. The audience participation scene was hilarious.
And, as a side note to Elle, lube, lots of it, was provided!!
