THE STORY: Billed as a “whirlwind tour of the gay American landscape,” this one-man show juxtaposes ten predominantly gay characters in fourteen vignettes. The characters question, contradict and especially challenge one another’s credo of what “being gay” really means.
“…a spirited…collage of (mostly) gay men and the conflicts that haunt them.” —The New York Times.

“Butler…walks through these subtly shaded vignettes of the gay life with wit, flair, compassion and a humanity that is never self-satisfied enough to flaunt itself…Butler runs the gamut of the gay life…You certainly don’t have to be gay to appreciate Butler’s people…recognizable life as lived to straight or gay alike.” —New York Post.
