Much more deserving of its Outstanding Play award is Buddy Thomas’s
Devil Boys From Beyond, an all-male spoof of 1950s sci-fi B-movies at
the Actors’ Playhouse. The premise is shamelessly silly: Rival
reporters try to scoop the story when aliens from a gay planet have
invaded Lizard Lick, Fla., and replaced the old townsmen with sexy
young muscle men to impregnate the townswomen and propagate their race.
We don’t actually discover the sexuality and motives of the invaders
until the final scene, but it sure doesn’t spoil the fun to know that
titillating twist up-front.
Fans of the drag genre send-ups perfected by Charles Busch and Charles Ludlam will have a devil of a good time watching these boys. In fact, adding class and maturity to the sometimes shaky production are Andy Halliday, a longtime member of Charles Busch’s Theater-in-Limbo, and Everett Quinton, a member of Charles Ludlam’s Ridiculous Theatre Company for 21 years. But I strongly encourage you to Google professional models Jeff Riberdy and Jacques Mitchell, who look damn good while uttering a few monotone lines as the scantily clad alien lovers. Thank me later.
