Looking for Billy Haines, according to press notes, "is a romantic comedy set in present-day New York City. Jamie Hollis, a struggling actor, scores an audition for a feature film about Billy Haines, a real life gay movie star of the 1920s and '30s who gave up his career to remain in a public relationship with his partner. Billy's story, along with Jamie's rather vibrant imagination and his three colorful roommates, helps him realize that he needs to make some decisions about his own unsatisfying relationship with a closeted man."
Show times will be Mondays at 8 PM, Wednesdays-Saturdays at 8 PM with matinees Saturdays at 2 PM and Sundays at 3 PM.
