Bed, Boys and Beyond, a gay-themed musical revue expanding on a 1999 New York International Fringe Festival show called All Male Lives of Y2-Gay, has proved a hit at the Duplex Cabaret Theatre in NYC’s Greenwich Village. The show, which began performances March 1, was set to end April 1 and then extended through June was recently extended through July.

The show plays Saturday nights only, though two Sunday benefit performances were added, with all proceeds going to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The first benefit night was May 7; the next is May 21. For information, call (212) 255-5438.

Portions of the show, by lyricist-librettist Jeff Dobbins and composer Alfredo Alvarez, were seen in the summer 1999 Y2-Gay hit. The show explores the lives of five gay men searching for love, understanding and community in the post-closet era. Songs includes "Searchin' for a Euphemism," "Here in Chelsea," "Family Values," "The Seven-Week Itch," "May I Take Your Hand?" and more. The "ex-gay" movement is also addressed, and a satirical look at the Boy Scouts is offered.

Jeff Kalpak directs and Brett Kristofferson musical-directs a cast that includes Don Brewer, Chad Miller, Ryan Perry, Tom Stuart and James Wesley.

Performances are on Saturdays. Tickets are $15 (with a two-drink minimum). The Duplex is at 61 Christopher Street in Manhattan. -- By David Lefkowitz
