Jason Mitchell, playwright and author of the LGBT marriage guide Getting Groomed, will see a Chicago production of his comedy The Boys Upstairs beginning May 19-July 2.
The Chicago premiere is presented by Pride Films and Plays. David Zak directs.
The Boys Upstairs, according to press notes, “welcomes you into the living room of Josh and Seth, awaiting the arrival of Ashley, the third of our gay musketeers. In a series of short scenes, we see the personal and professional thrills and disappointments, tops and bottoms that Hell’s Kitchen has to offer. Just when the men settle into their usual rhythm of celebrating life and then analyzing it the next morning, they are all thrown for a loop when a new neighbor moves in below. The 'is he or isn’t he' question is just one of many that these city boys ponder with style, scandal, and specialty cocktails!”
The cast includes Nelson Rodriguez leads a cast including Gary Henderson as Seth, Tristien Winffree as Eric, Shaun Baer as Ashley and Luke Meierdiercks in a variety of roles.
The play premiered in 2009 at the New York International Fringe Festival. The mission of Pride Films and Plays is to change lives through the generation of diverse new work (or work that is new to Chicago) with LGBTQ+ characters or themes that is essential viewing for all audiences.
