10 - There Goes the Gayborhood - Libra Moon Productions - Strike Theater
A close-knit group of friends disbands after a disastrous reunion episode of their reality show. Five years later, their apartment building and favorite bar will be destroyed unless they can reunite to save it.
I saw Jakey Emmert’s previous Fringe show back in 2013 (They Shoot 25-Year-Old Gay Men, Don't They?) and was most amused, so I was happy to see he’s back again (second from the left in this picture) with more as writer/director/performer in this new ensemble comedy.
Further press info says it’s “a comedy influenced by the themes of growing out of your friend group, the strange and magical time of your late twenties and early thirties, and good old-fashioned gentrification -- all presented as a Bravo-inspired reality show.”
New play, gay, funny, proven track record. All I need to hear.
Here's some handy links to the full Top 10, Top 11-20 and Returning Favorites lists.
