Hot Sheet: Project Fanilow

The top 10 entertainment highlights on our gaydar this week: Californication goes gay, we became Fanilows of Broadway, and finally a fave of ours returns to TV.



6. THEATER: My First Lady

Two leading lights of LGBT theater, playwright David Koteles and director Jason Jacobs, collaborators on the GLAAD Award-nominated The Bald Diva, team up again for My First Lady, in which Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, Dolley Madison (pictured above), and Thomas Jefferson’s daughters meet for a White House tea party that quickly escalates into a battle over race, class, and gender in early America. The play, which opens tonight, is part of the New York–based Metropolitan Playhouse’s Founders Festival, featuring eight new works inspired by the writings of the nation’s founding fathers and mothers and continuing through January 27.
