Coming up this week there are a number of exciting events to celebrate the 20th year kick off party for Wings’ Theatre subscribers from any past season. Wings Theatre has been an integral part of the off Broadway community in New York City for some time now and this reception and recognition of their 20th year anniversary is very well deserved.
The first event which is taking place on Saturday, November 24, 2007 at 8 p.m. is the Instant Play Insanity! event. The rules are simple: there are five Wings Theatre playwrights, five Wings Theatre directors, 15 Wings Theatre actors, and all they need to do is write, direct and rehearse five short plays in 24 hours; then put them up in performance in this one evening. Events such as these are always very exciting and there is thought to be a whole lot of sleep deprived artist madness in the wings at Wings. This event is a one shot only production so November 24 is the only day you’ll be able to see it. Following the event will be a party with the performers and everybody else involved in the production for all the audience members to participate in.
Instant Play Insanity! is produced by Roberto Cambeio; featured guest artist as one of the performers in the Wings Theatre company of actors in includes gay porn icon Will Clark. Tickets for Instant Play Insanity! are free for all Wings Theatre subscribers; just show your season ticket at the box office; and are $20 for other people in advance or $30 at the door and the price includes reception.
Another exciting event for the Wings Theatre community has the porn star added once again with his “An Evening of Just Slightly Bawdy Fun to Benefit Wings…Will Clark’s Porno Bingo.” While the name of this event may sound like fun and games and while there may be a whole lot of fun and games going on at the event itself, it’s true that, to date, Will Clark has raised over $50,000 for charities of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender community in New York City through this Porno Bingo event.
It’s all meant as fun but outside observers may think of it as a little silly and just a little bit sleazy. In fact the people who are participating in it may think it’s sleazy also but that’s part of the fun. Porn stars call the numbers and winners are able to score a grab bag of cool prizes.
This event will benefit wings Theatre and will take place on Wednesday, November 21 from 9 to 11 p.m. at the 9th Ave Bistro, 693 9th Ave between 47th and 48th streets. There is no cover charge at the door; tell your friends.
