THEATER: United Solo Theater Festival
The third annual festival of one-person performances opens in New York City Thursday — National Coming Out Day, which is appropriate, given the many LGBT-themed pieces in the fest. Some of these are The Bronx Queen (pictured above), Joe Gulla’s show about growing up gay in that tough New York borough; Death in Venice in First Person, Rory Lance’s take on Thomas Mann’s classic homoerotic novel; Growing Pains, in which Nathan James dissects stereotypes of black men in hip-hop culture; and To Carry On … A Tribute to the Life and Music of Laura Nyro, with Mimi Cohen portraying the iconic lesbian singer-songwriter and the people in her life, including manager David Geffen. The fest runs through November 18; click here for the full schedule.
