The 2005-2006 season of the Philadelphia Theatre Company will include world-premiere productions of works by leading gay playwrights Terrence McNally and Christopher Durang, reports Playbill.com. The season will kick off October 19 with Durang's Macao, a musical described as "a funny and irreverent musical parody of film noir, mixing together farce, camp, and tongue-in-cheek wit." McNally's Some Men, opening May 12, 2006, is "a theatrical collage that explores what it has meant to be a gay American over the last century, from World War II until some moment in the very near future."
