Review – GayCo Production’s “iHole”

iHoleProduction: iHole
Producers: GayCo Productions
Synopsis: iHole finds the uproarious hilarity of a nation and a queer community taking separate but equal journeys as they are sucked into the powerful force of the iHole.  Through it all, GayCo learns what politicians have known for years: it’s hard to resist being pulled into The Center.
Pros: Energetic, funny skits about gay life in Chicago, great location, low ticket price of $15
Cons: Uneven, a few segments fall flat
Overall: iHole is a great compliment to a fun evening out in Lakeview. Take in the revue, and then go out for dinner and drinks.

GayCo video – “DaVinci Code” – the movie

Unfortunately, GayCo has not posted a video from their current production, iHole, but here’s a fun video from a past production.  Gives you a general idea of their style.

“Curtains” CD – Really Like It!

Curtains - Original Broadway Cast

I just bought the recently-released Broadway recording of “Curtains“, starring David Hyde Pierce (check out at interesting interview Pierce gave regarding the show and his career in general).  It echoes back to earlier Broadway from the 50’s.  The lyrics are clever, and there’s a *biting* song about theatre critics, or – more accurately – whether theatre critics deserve to live.  (ouch!).  I suggest you listen to track excerpts from the CD!
