Lance Horne ("First Things Last") will contribute original material to Gaylebrity, which will play an eight-week run at the Provincetown Counter Productions Studio July 10-Aug. 29.
Pazakis (South Pacific, Jerry Springer the Opera) and Paulini (Back in the Day) are collaborating on the new musical production that will follow a chat-show format. Each week a different special guest will join the duo.
Confirmed to appear are Burgess (The Little Mermaid), Thomas (Xanadu), Cates (Wicked), Christina Sajous (Baby It's You), Samantha Shafer (Women on the Verge…) and Emily McNamara. Additional guests will be announced shortly.
Here's how the work is billed: "From their early days at the Harwich Junior Theatre, playing African Gods in a severely under-diversified production of Once On This Island to late night games of 'diva-tag' at any of NYC's piano bars, Kate and Ethan have spent their lives side by side, on stage and off. Through pop culture, music, comedy and special guests, Gaylebrity will chronicle Kate's meteoric rise from unknown belter to slightly less unknown gay icon."
Tickets are available by calling (508) 413-1000 or by visiting Counter-Productions.org.
