Seat Filler: NYC Theater Guide for June 2012

Our man on the New York theater scene makes Jim Parsons his imaginary friend, shacks up with former soap star Jake Silbermann, gets a cross-dressing crash course on Harry Potter, and much more.



The Etiquette of DeathThe Etiquette of Death
Conceived by Chris Tanner and codirected by Everett Quinton and Julie Atlas Muz, this endearing but overly ambitious world premiere explores the inevitable end through an absurd mishmash of songs and sketches by New York’s most notable downtown artistes. In the glittery shadow of the AIDS epidemic, Quinton and Tanner lead the jazz-funereal proceedings in campy drag as Madame Death and cancer-stricken mother to a dying son.
La MaMa’s Ellen Stewart Theatre, through July 1.
