The comedy about a closeted Hollywood actor, his manic agent and a male escort will open the Gallery Players' 45th season in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Patrick Vassel directs the production that will run Sept. 10-25.
Yore (Bound) will star as agent Diane in a cast that also includes Brian W. Seibert (Fools in Love) as Hollywood actor Mitchell, Jake Mendes (Gallery Players' The Drowsy Chaperone) as escort Alex and Tania Verafield (Beneath the Veil at the Geffen) as Alex’s girlfriend Ellen.
The production will have scenic design by Chris Minard, costume design by Ryan J. Mollerand and lighting design by Heather Sparling. Robert Earle Jones produces the run.
According to the Gallery Players, "Love will either cost Mitchell Green $200 an hour, or his entire Hollywood career…Mitchell is on the brink of superstardom with the role of a lifetime, but something isn’t right. One lonely night, Mitchell hires Alex, a male prostitute, and unexpectedly falls in love. Cut to Diane, Mitchell’s power-player agent, who will stop at nothing to set Mitchell 'straight' and keep him from making a decision that could derail both of their lives, and more importantly, their careers."

Other works include As Bees in Honey Drown, Music From a Sparkling Planet, The Country Club and Mr. & Mrs. Fitch.
