Hunter Ryan Herdlicka, Carole J. Bufford, Gabrielle Stravelli, Connor Donahue, Molly Pope and Carlo Maria are among the artists celebrating Tony Award winner Bernadette Peters at the Feb. 16 installment of The Meeting*, hosted by Justin Sayre.
The 9:30 PM show at Joe's Pub features music direction by Tracy Stark.
According to press notes, "Each month, the I.O.S gathers to honor an artist or a cultural work that is iconic to the gay community. Justin Sayre, the show's creator, writer and host, serves as the Chairman of the Board of the International Order of Sodomites and brings his singular wit to essential business of the day through such regular features such as 'Letters to the Chairman' and 'New Rulings from the Board.'"
The next installment of The Meeting*, scheduled for March 16, will be a tribute to the popular TV program "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer." Additionally, Night of a Thousand Judys – the special all-star concert presentation of The Meeting* to benefit Ali Forney Center – will return for its fourth annual installment in June 2014.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
