The gay experience in Dallas differs dramatically from the gay experience in other big cities. Better than some, not as good as others.
But we love it regardless.
What we love even more is that Dallas gayborhood life takes center stage in a new play debuting on September 9 (with a preview September 7 and 8): Cedar Springs Or Big Scary Animals.
Written by Matt Lyle and directed by Jeffrey Schmidt and opening at Theatre 3’s intimate downstairs Theatre Too space, this culture-clash comedy explores what happens when an older white couple moves to the neighborhood, unaware that it’s at the center of LGBT culture in the city. When they end up chatting over dinner with their multi-racial gay neighbors, however, prejudices and strong opinions bubble quickly to the surface.
It’s nature versus nurture versus the generational gap—all with hilarious results.
And a co-starring role for a part of town we all hold near and dear.
