7. THEATER: Gay Play Weekend
A murder mystery in which everyone’s dressed as Joan Crawford and a musical drama about the tragic 1973 UpStairs Lounge fire in New Orleans are among the offerings in Chicago-based Pride Films and Plays’ festival, which presents readings of the five finalists in its 2014 Gay Play and Musical Contest. The others: a tale of Michelangelo’s affair with a Roman nobleman, a look at gay dating today, and a drama about abuse and healing. Performances are scheduled May 9-11 at the Center on Halsted’s Hoover-Leppen Theatre, with a short discussion after each, and the winner will be announced at the close of the May 11 show.
