Directed by Hector Lugo, performances at the downtown venue are scheduled for Jan. 21-23, 2009, at 7 PM and Jan. 24 at 2 and 7 PM. Proceeds will benefit the LGBT Center and the LGBT Theatre Company.
Paul Caiola and Ted Morin will co-star.
Loaded, according to press notes, "dares to ask the question, 'What happens when f**k buddies start talking?' Running 90 minutes, [the play] breathtakingly unfolds in real time as the characters — a jaded, 47-year-old man who is used to having the upper hand in intimate encounters and a hopeful, quick-witted 24-year-old — reveal themselves in a sexually charged tête-à-tête. They thrash out the perceived consequences of a libertine past, the risk of a conformist present and the dithering future of the Gay Community."
The LGBT Center is located in Manhattan at 208 West 13th Street. For tickets, priced $20-$35, call (212) 620-7310 or visit www.gaycenter.org.
