Directed by Tim Drucker, the new comedy will officially open Feb. 9.
Sex Tips, according to press notes, "is set inside a local university auditorium, where the featured event is an interactive discussion with the author of 'Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man.' With the help of Stefan, a hunky stage assistant, author Dan Anderson encourages the shy and studious moderator of the event, Robyn, to follow her dreams while following his tips."
“Some of our best tips were picked up and perfected in New York, where the competition is, ahem, stiff. We’re excited that this hilarious adaptation of our book will be there to entertain as well as inform,” said authors and real-life best friends Dan Anderson (the gay man) and Maggie Berman (the straight woman) in a previous statement.
Presented by Matt Murphy and Shawn Nightingale, the production also features scenic design by Luke Cantarella, costume design by Tilly Grimes, lighting design by Brian Tovar and video and sound design by Randy Blair. Renee Lynette DeMaio is the production stage manager; the company manager is Matt Franzetti. Casting is by Geoff Josselson Casting.
Show times are Monday at 8 PM, Tuesday at 7 PM, Thursday at 8 PM, Friday at 7 PM and 10 PM, Saturday at 2 PM and 8 PM and Sunday at 7 PM. The show runs 80 minutes with no intermission.
There will be a talkback with the authors of the book (moderated by Michael Musto) Jan. 25.
