Here's how The Complete Homosexual's Guide is billed: "In the summer of 2007, Gus Marcantonio, a retired longshoreman, summons his children to the family's Brooklyn brownstone for a series of shocking announcements. The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide… explores revolution, radicalism, marriage, sex, prostitution, politics, real estate, unions of all kinds and debts both repaid and unpayable."
Here is a look at cast and playwright in the rehearsal room:
Director Michael Greif, who staged the world premiere of the play at the Guthrie, also directs the Off-Broadway run, which will officially open May 5 at the Public. Performances are scheduled through June 12 in the Newman Theater. The Public and the Signature Theatre co-present the New York bow.
