After playing sold-out runs in Los Angeles and two Off-Broadway engagements last year, Drew Droege’s acclaimed monologue play Bright Colors and Bold Patterns is set to return to NYC this fall. Directed by Michael Urie, the solo show about gay marriage will play an eight-week engagement at SoHo Playhouse beginning November 12.
The Off-Broadway return of Bright Colors and Bold Patterns will officially open November 20. The run is scheduled through January 7, 2018.
Written and performed by Droege, Bright Colors and Bold Patterns details the events leading up to Josh and Brennan’s wedding in Palm Springs. “The night before becomes a drunken, drug-fueled scream riot, because their friend Gerry has arrived, furious that their invitation says ‘Please refrain from wearing bright colors or bold patterns,’” read production notes. “In the struggle for equality, what do we really want? What do we lose? And is there any cocaine left?”
The show features set design by Dara Wishingrad and is produced by Zach Laks in association with Riki Kane Larimer. Tom DeTrinis serves as associate producer.
Bright Colors and Bold Patterns was originally presented at L.A.’s VS Theatre with direction by Molly Prather. It was remounted at Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles and transferred to the Barrow Street Theatre in 2016.
