The Deep Throat Sex Scandal, which concerns the making of the famed 1970s pornographic film "Deep Throat" and the subsequent controversy the film ignited, officially opened Oct. 10 at the 45 Bleecker Street Theatre.

"Finally the true story will be revealed," according to the creators. "In 1972, a hairdresser from the Bronx made a little movie that grossed over $600 million (possibly the most profitable film of all time) and ignited the sexual revolution. The Deep Throat Sex Scandal takes you behind the scenes, into the secret world of adult filmmaking and introduces you to the legendary Linda Lovelace and Harry Reems. Follow the bizarre journey from the creation of the movie, through the raids, arrests and the banning of the film, to the political fallout of the ensuing courtroom drama, which launched the career of Allen Dershowitz."

 

Here is a look at the opening night celebration held at Gonzalez y Gonzalez restaurant in Manhattan:


 

David Bertolino's play is directed by adult film writer-director Jerry Douglas. The cast features Lori Gardner as Linda Lovelace and Malcolm Madera as Harry Reems. Lovelace and Reems starred in the 1972 film, which was the catalyst for an obscenity trial. The cast also includes Graham Stuart Allen, Frank Blocker, Stephen Hope, John-Charles Kelly, Rita Rehn and Zach Wegner.
