Got Gay-tention Deficit Disorder? Does Shirley MacLaine think Jonathan Groff is gay because of his past life as an androgynous supermodel? Read on… By John Russell

1. Shows with LGBT CHARACTERS attract 28% of TV viewers and 22% of adverting dollars, according to Nielson data. That should be good news for any upcoming pilots with gay plots. 2. Though Amy Winehouse was rumored to be working on her third album at the time of her death, the posthumous disc due out next month may not include many of those supposed recordings. Producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi have cobbled together a mix of covers and previously unreleased tracks for Lioness: Hidden Treasures. 3. Gay porn star MATTHEW RUSH is quitting the smut biz. According to the muscle-bound star’s Twitter, he’s retiring from porn because he’s fallen in love. 8 NOVEMBER 4, 2011

4. Out rocker Bob Mould will be spin opening DJ sets at certain dates on the Foo Fighters’ current tour—including at MSG on November 13. 5. Out cutie JONATHAN GROFF is returning to Glee! His character will be the new coach of Vocal Adrenaline. 6. We are all for beating prostate cancer, but did no one tell Movember’s Australian organizers what “’mo” is short for here in the U.S. before they chose “See what a Mo can do” as their slogan? 7. According to SHIRLEY MACLAINE’s new book, we’re homosexual or transgendered because we can’t get over our past lives as members of the “opposite” sex.

8. Known for walking in both men’s wear and women’s wear shows, supermodel Andrej Pejic’s androgynous looks have landed him on the cover of Out Magazine’s annual Out 100 issue. 9. Because “daytime talk show host” is the only career option open to showbiz dykes of a certain age, QUEEN LATIFAH is developing a show with producers Will and Jada Pinkett Smith for a fall 2013. 10. A recent study by the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs shows a 38% increase in the number of reported incidents of domestic violence between queer couples. However, the jump may have more to do with increased reporting and funding for these sorts of studies than an actual increase in violence.

Actor/cabaret host Justin Sayre has a penchant for the old-school— when we asked him where he’d take our hypothetical time machine, he told us 1946. “I live there now; believe me, it’s wonderful,” the curly-haired charmer said. His monthly show, The Meeting, frequently turns up the camp and turns back the clock. In June he sold out Joe’s Pub for a Judy Garland-worshiping Ali Forney Center benefit show, and this month The Meeting’s third season continues at the Duplex. We asked the Forty Fort, Pennsylvania native to meet up, so he could give us the lowdown. —Alex Erikson


Charles Mathison

WHAT’S

NOW

SURE, SOCIAL NETWORKING HAS BECOME a defining element of New York life. But, contrary to popular belief, not all social networking has gone online. Take, for example, Meet Other People and Cook (MOPAC.us), the brainchild of out, self-taught chef Charles Mathison, a.k.a. Chef Lloyd, and his sister Nicole who formed this pressure-free environment where they hoped people could interact while learning to make exotic food fast. “I originally did it with friends in my Williamsburg apartment,” says the 26year-old about MOPAC’s inception two years ago. “They loved it. I then decided to transform it into a culinary social networking company and it evolved from there.” Now MOPAC runs bi-weekly classes out of its Bushwick cooking lab and has created its own little niche where cooking and dating collide. More recently, Mathison has been exploring more targeted gay gatherings, like MOPAC’s gay singles cooking event Thai! Thai! Thai! on December 10, which will teach authentic Thai cuisine (“We even have a gay Thai boy working for us!”) but also program gay-friendly social activities into the evening. “Cooking brings us to a place in which we feel comfort,” the Brooklyn native says of MOPAC’s growing foodie following, before noting that’s only part of their success. “Our crowd, by chance, is very attractive,” he admits. “Really! They are very open minded and eager to cook and meet people.” —Benjamin Solomon

HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH LITTLE HOUSE ON THE FERRY? The show’s creator and producer, Rob Gould, contacted my management to set up a meeting to discuss the project and playing the part of Max.

The music really works, and I was impressed with Rob’s vision, organizational skills and his intent to make this show as great as it could possibly be by pulling into the project key individuals who have the talent and experience to help bring Rob’s vision to life.

to an old friend—I know that sounds corny as hell.

It’s reassuring that a man as beautiful—and straight—as mark CONSuElOS is comfortable performing in a series of plays about gay marriage, and is also a strong ally of gay rights. “First it was the Prop 8 vote in California and then it didn’t pass in New York, and to be honest that’s when I started to pay more attention,” says the much-lusted-after Latin heartthrob. He’ll perform in Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays, which opens tonight, with the likes of Beth Leavel and Richard Thomas. “I’ve done a few off-Broadway shows. I really enjoyed my experience and couldn’t wait to do it again,” Consuelos explains. But before you get your hopes up, boys, don’t forget Consuelos’ other half, TV darling Kelly Ripa. And when prodded about whether his new show had pushed any sexual boundaries, Consuelos told us, “Not yet. I’ll let you know if that happens.” Here’s to hoping! —Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays opens Nov 13 at Minetta Lane Theater, 18 Minetta Lane (btwn Minetta St/Sixth Ave), standingonceremony.net.

aids service center celeBrates 20 years of service to the hiv/aids community. y 1991 scientists and activists were beginning to better understand the AIDS epidemic and what it meant for gay men. The early days of confusion, fear mongering and government silence were mostly past and it had been three years since the CDC had mailed an AIDS information pamphlet to every household in the country. While organizations like ACT UP and GMHC were arranging grassroots efforts to get prevention and educative information disseminated en mass, a grassroots organization called AIDS Service Center was forming in New York to provide health and social services to HIV positive members of the community. Tonight, AIDS Service Center celebrates 20 years of successfully keeping our friends healthy and active with a gala at Bryant Park Grill to benefit their continuing efforts. “I had a lot of friends, particularly my male gay friends, who were getting sick and dying in the early years,” says Sharen Duke, executive director of AIDS Service Center. “It made me want to help and give back and so I got involved.” Duke was the center’s first executive director, and she has been with them for the two decades since. “I had never been an executive director before and essentially the founding board of directors that hired me took a risk on me,” says Duke. Since her initiation, Duke has seen the center grow from a staff of three with an annual budget of less than $200,000 to a network of four sites around New York with a 100-person staff and an $8 million annual budget. “Twenty years later, I’d like to say that it was a good risk!” Duke laughs.

B

“This 20th year represents stability for clients and stability and positive changes for staff and our management division,” says Brenda Starks-Ross, deputy executive director of AIDS Service Center. “For me the first client is the staff,” she continues. “Our staff—a little bit more than 25% used to be clients,” Starks-Ross points out. “People have to find inner courage to walk through our doors,” Duke says. “We provide the support, nurturing and safety. It is the client that does the hard work.” What distinguishes the AIDS Service Center from other nonprofit HIV/AIDS organizations is twofold. The center has partnerships with area hospitals as well as a peer education and training program. “We bring our community expertise to connect people with medical care,” the director says. “In addition to that [our volunteers] provide 2,000 educational presentations across New York City that reach almost 14,000 New Yorkers,” Duke explains. “The peers are just incredible.” And Starks-Ross—who imparts her heart-wrenching personal connection to the AIDS Service Center (she lost her husband a decade ago to an AIDS-related illness) with strength and grace—puts it best: “I love the AIDS Service Center so much, and honestly, I truly believe in what we do. I tell people I’m a stakeholder…I have to be on this battlefield.” Three cheers for the AIDS Service Center. —AE

While their first single peaked at 19 in the U.K., it failed to place on the U.S. Dance or Hot 100. But working with Guetta turned out to be one of Willis’s best decisions. By 2006 his single “Love Don’t Let Me Go (Walking Away)” with Guetta reached No. 3 on the U.S. Dance chart, and he hit No. 1 twice: with “Love Is Gone” (with Guetta) in 2007 and “Give It All You Got” (without him) in 2008. Last year the duo struck dance gold again with “Gettin’ Over You,” to which Fergie and LMFAO also lent vocals. Willis drops his second fulllength studio album, Inside Voice, this month. —AE

YOU GREW UP IN THE SOUTH. HOW DID THAT AFFECT YOUR IDENTITY? I think growing up when and where I did forced me to develop a strong sense of myself. Otherwise I probably would have crumbled by now. WHAT WAS YOUR TRANSITION FROM GOSPEL TO POP LIKE? I was completely terrified making the transition from gospel to dance music. When it was happening I was very afraid of being judged. When the first song went number one in France, I gave myself permission not to care what people thought about my new music shift. I felt validated. I felt like, “I’m

happy with this so it doesn’t really matter what other people think.” I kept working with David and Joachim Garraud and never looked back. It was like being born again.

My favorite muse is about finding the guts to make the first move and being broken when we do and the other person doesn’t feel the same way. I also love celebrating that feeling when they are just as much in love with us as we are with them. That is magic! The angst of love—this is what I love exploring with my writing.

Brooklyn cluB sugarland celeBrates four years of hipster homo hotness. ugarland and Metropolitan—the two full-time gay bars in Williamsburg—are not only owned by the same people but both are celebrating anniversaries this week. Metropolitan turned nine on November 6, and tonight Sugarland celebrates it’s own four-year anniversary on on North Ninth Street. To celebrate, the Billyburg bar will host performances by Sherry Lillie and Jonathan & BPro, plus their Saturday night resident, DJ Emjay, will spin and they’ll have an open bar till 11pm. As a primer to tonight’s party, we asked owner Troy Carson to reflect on Sugarland and Metropolitain’s flavorful history. —AE

S

TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE EARLY DAYS. I worked with my business partners as a manager at Metropolitan and Sugarland. I opened both the places. They used to own a bar at Fourth Street and Second Avenue [in Williamsburg], and they wanted to— and I was trying to encourage them—to open a gay bar in Williamsburg. It was an untapped market, and they had three restaurants that had been doing very well. So they called me in one day and asked me where I think would be a good place for a gay bar because I wanted to be a partner and that’s how [Metropolitan] began. A few years later they asked me to “go gay” at this place they had called Capone’s, and that’s now Sugarland.

SO AFTER SIX YEARS, ARE YOU HAPPY HOW IT TURNED OUT? For me it’s not so much about dollar signs and money. It’s about having a place that’s safe for people to come and network and meet people and escape the troubles of the world. More like a community center kind of a feeling. That’s really what the places have become. People feel like they’re a part of it—not just customers—staff members too. They take ownership of it that way too. It’s really an amazing place—both of them. AND BROOKLYN HAS CERTAINLY CHANGED SINCE THOSE EARLY DAYS. I moved to this neighborhood in 1993 and I worked at what was called the El Café at the time. There [were] just handful of artists and musicians moving into the neighborhood at the time. There was an underground scene going on and over the years it’s just gotten better and better. Of course the underground thing not so much anymore, but Williamsburg is on the map. I feel like we’ve been a part of that, especially for the gay community.

HAS OWNING A BAR BEEN EVERYTHING YOU’VE EXPECTED? I’ve been very lucky. For some reason good people are really drawn to me. I’ve got some great people—employees and promoters. You know, they’re like a family.

WHAT WAS THE INITIAL CONCEPT? Where I came from—I came out in Topeka, Kansas where there was one gay bar in a 500-mile radius, so everybody went to that place. That’s the idea. I wanted to make Metropolitan welcoming to everybody.

emily mcnamara helps park slope’s gallery players keep the halloween spirit alive with their off-off-Broadway production of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS. or those who like to think of Halloween as more of a month-long celebration than a one-night-only event, you’ll be happy to know there are many way to keep the frights coming. But if you’ve already been to every haunted house in the city twice, join gay fave Emily McNamara in the outer boroughs for a performance of Alan Menken’s classic Little Shop of Horrors at the Gallery Players in Park Slope. The show, which closes tonight, is sure to satisfy desires for both a Halloween extension and ‘80s retro off-Broadway theater. We asked McNamara to dish about her new on-stage role. —AE

F

YOU SEEM TO BE PRETTY ACTIVE IN THE THEATER. HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS? Little Shop of Horrors is one of my favorite musicals of all time. I played the role of Audrey in High School and I’ve wanted a chance to do it again. I have always known that The Gallery Players is a highly reputable, professional theater and that they do great work. I went to the auditions and was thrilled when I got the part! As an adult, I get to see the show through a new lens and it’s really exciting for me. AND YOU’RE A STRAIGHT GIRL OFT EMPLOYED IN GAY NIGHTLIFE. HOW’D THAT COME ABOUT? I won a singing contest called XL Star at the now-extinct XL nightclub in Chelsea. After that experience, people started asking me to perform here and there. Next thing I knew I was hosting events in gay nightlife on a regular basis. I think it was meant to be. I wanted to come out as an honorary gay man on National Coming Out Day. I have so many of the same interests: musicals, deep

v-neck T-shirts, sexting, open relationships, unicorns, vulgar female comedians, finding alternate spellings for the [word] “work” and a profound love of dick. Can I say dick? OF COURSE YOU CAN! SO, WHAT IS YOUR IDEAL AUDIENCE? Smart, cool gay men with great taste. Sprinkle in a few lesbians and drunk straight girls—maybe one or two straight guys that I can tease and hit on. Yup. That sounds about right. WHAT DO YOU ASPIRE TO? Take Bette Midler, Chelsea Handler, Lady Gaga, Julie Halston, Carol Burnett, a pinch of glitter, a lot of love and some health insurance. Shake it in a test tube and then extract my future. SO WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE IN FIVE YEARS? See above? DOES THIS FEEL LIKE YOUR MOTHER IS INTERVIEWING YOU? If it were my mother interviewing me, the question would be, “Why haven’t you called? Is your fucking finger broken?!” And that would be the whole interview. WHAT MAKES THIS VERSION OF LITTLE SHOP WORTH SEEING? It’s a fresh take on [a] timeless musical, tickets are affordable and Brooklyn is just a party bus full of poppers away. Little Shop of Horrors plays at The Gallery Players, 199 14th St (btwn Fourth/Fifth Aves), Park Slope. Through Nov 13. Visit GalleryPlayers.com for more info.

Sound Check By John Russell

Diamond rings, Ssion s Webster Hall filled up for last month’s Diamond Rings show, multicolored beach balls flew across the room, tossed by fans in little cardboard rainbow masks. Both were promo items distributed by the Canadian one-man electro act’s street team, and they added to the sense of giddy anticipation among the fans here to see this hot new talent. John O’Regan has been racking up the praise since the U.S. release this summer of Special Affections, his debut album as Diamond Rings. Glowing nods from Pitchfork, The New York Times and NME followed his CMJ and SXSW shows last year, as did an opening spot on Robyn’s 2011 Body Talk tour. At Webster Hall, the beach balls didn’t stop flying and the masks didn’t come off when O’Regan took the stage in a denim jacket, sunglasses, glossy red lipstick and a baseball cap riddled with gleaming metal spikes. With his gender-bending look and electro-pop sound, O’Regan came off like a baby-faced Patrick Wolf if he were channeling Morrissey and Lady Gaga—maybe even a little Marky Mark—instead of Kate Bush. All alone on stage, he moved seamlessly from keyboards to guitars to programmed drum loops, showing off some impressively sensual dance moves in between and generally owning the stage in a way you wouldn’t necessarily expect from a solo act. Opening with the gorgeous slow burner “Play By Heart,” he picked up the pace for “On Our Own,” tossing beach balls back at the audience before launching into the playful song. At the foot of the stage, gay boys and their girlfriends danced their little hearts out to “Show Me Your Stuff” and the ghetto-fab “You Oughta Know.” But Diamond Rings is multifaceted, and there’s more to O’Regan than just dance pop. He moved from the drifting electro ballad “It’s Not My Party” to more guitar-heavy songs like “Something Else” and “All Yr Songs”—dedicated, O’Regan said, to the 14 people who came to his last New York show at Cake Shop last year. Judging from the enthusiastic energy of this crowd, O’Regan won’t ever play to such a small crowd again. Also taking New York by storm last month was Ssion. I got to see the Kansas City-based band twice the week of CMJ. First

up, the band tore into their headlining set at the latest Spank Live party at Gowanus art space Littlefield. Front man Cody Critcheloe took the stage with his drag queen backup singers and blew away the late-night crowd with the band’s dance rock cover of Young Marble Giants’“Credit in the Straight World.” A week later, I made the trek over to Glasslands to see the band at Dovecote Records’ unofficial CMJ showcase. Critcheloe had promised the full Ssion experience at this show, with video projections and band members who couldn’t make it to the Spank show. And Jesus, did they deliver. Ssion rocked the crowd with neodisco punk tracks like “Listen to the Grrrls” and “Blonde With U,” their whole ’70s super group meets Rocky Horror meets The Muppet Show in perfect sync with Glasslands’ cartoonish atmosphere.

By Keo Nozari he might not have the best gaydar, but The X Factor’s Simone Battle definitely knows how to play the game. The same day this gorgeous contestant got booted from the singing reality show, she announced her new single, “He Likes Boys.” And it’s a battle well won! The quirky, humorous track is reminiscent of Katy Perry’s early buzz hit “He’s So Gay.” But unlike Perry’s song (which was ultimately dissing a straight guy for acting Simone Battle queer), Battle’s is about her tough luck in becoming love struck over gay men. “Manicured fingertips, he dresses like an American Apparel mannequin. I guess it’s kinda odd he’s such a fan of Lady Gaga,” she laments. Is it any wonder Battle is self-described on her Facebook page as “If a cheerleader, a hipster and a drag queen had a threesome, I would be their love child”? But all ends well: in a Will & Grace-style “love story with a twist,” the object of her affections becomes a best friend when she realizes they share a penchant for vintage shopping and a love for, well—boys! Now Battle could have easily put out a generic bump ’n’ grind track, so it’s refreshing to see her straight (pardon the pun) out of the show doing something different. And the adorable accompanying video only endeared us even more. Watch Battle bat her eyelashes, put on her sexiest outfits and totally fail at winning the affections of the cute boys that are more interested in watching movies than playing footsie. Speaking of videos, are you wondering why Beyoncé is releasing damn near all the videos for her latest album, 4, at the same time? With “Countdown,” “Love on Top” and “Party” all released in October (and “1+1” released barely more than a month prior), it definitely feels like B is blowing her load in one shot. It’s not totally haphazard: Beyoncé Live at Roseland: Elements of 4 on DVD will include seven of these new videos on Nov 21. There is a similarity to when she released the

deluxe edition of album B’Day in 2007, but that was after three huge singles had already been released. It does feel like she’s not giving the audience much time to catch on the singles (or learn the dances that helped propel songs like “Single Ladies” into a phenomenon). Our guess? With baby Beyoncé on the way and acting in the Clint Eastwooddirected A Star Is Born right after, promotion for 4 is finished. But we have to wonder: has the influence of Rihanna releasing a new album every year for the last three years put Beyoncé and others on note to follow suit? Time will tell if 5 arrives next year! N

hether it’s getting loopy on a bowling lane, shooting pool in a dark bar or mastering mini golf, there’s nothing better than mixing and mingling while showing off your penchant for the silliest of sports. But whereas the former two—bowling and pool—have started to carry some rather high prices in the city, mini golf is a fun, quirky and, most importantly, cheap way to spend an evening with friends. so we’ve rounded up some of the least expensive spots for pint-sized putting. —Alex Erikson

Aries (MARCH 21–APRIL 20) You’ve lost a good friend and confidant because your new goals and rewards came with a certain sacrifice. Don’t deny the void—work through it. There’s a chance for reunion in the distance.

Taurus (APRIL 21–MAY 21) If something gets taken away, don’t overreact. Instead use it as a measure of balance. Having too much and not putting it to good use creates overwhelming pressure down the road.

Gemini (MAY 22–JUNE 21) Political and societal views are important to defend, but remember it’s how you address the topics that wins or loses supporters. You may regret your overzealousness later.

Cancer (JUNE 22–JULY 23) News, blogs or friends shoving their perspectives down your throat is inconsiderate. Speak up to keep others from making your mind up for you. Money is tighter than usual, so spend wisely.

Leo (JULY 24–AUGUST 23) Choices regarding personal or professional matters weigh on you too long, just make a final decision and move on. It won’t make everyone happy but will at least keep the ball rolling.

WWW.NEXTMAGAZINE.COM

Virgo (AUGUST 24–SEPTEMBER 23) When listening to points of view that collide with your own, it’s important at the moment to learn both sides of a story before judging. You play a part in the near future.

Libra (SEPTEMBER 24–OCTOBER 23) Getting away from mundane pressures and exploring new things with good old friends rejuvenates the spirit, exercises the mind and introduces you to a new destiny. Act now!

Scorpio (OCTOBER 24–NOVEMBER 22) A slap on the wrist is karma’s way of warning you to keep it under control. Making the same mistake a second time costs you more than you could ever expect. Keep friends’ visits to a minimum.

Sagittarius (NOVEMBER 23 –DECEMBER 22)

HOROSCOPE

Banging your head against the same locked door won’t do any good. Step back and have a laugh at your own persistence—it’s a powerful ally! Now use it to open a window and get on with it.

Capricorn (DECEMBER 23 –JANUARY 20) Others are enjoying your pleasant cooperative mood lately; don’t be surprised to see things going your way. It’s all in your attitude. A lover’s outlook needs adjusting or else it’s over.

Aquarius (JANUARY 21–FEBRUARY 19) Share your good fortune but don’t just give it away to the unworthy. Your heart’s in the right place, but if you let others take advantage of your kindness you’ll be singing the martyr’s blues later.

Pisces (FEBRUARY 20–MARCH 20) If you don’t feel like yourself temporarily, then feel someone else! It could be the beginning of a growing phase, and, if it’s not, then you’re truly confused and need a friendly guide to lend a hand. © 2011 James Jacob Pierri. All rights reserved.

CHRISTMAS WITH THE KRANKS John cho and kal penn in A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas

Eating Out: Drama Camp Time Investment: 90 min. Return on Investment: 45 min.

Time Investment: 89 min. Return on Investment: 69 min. fter a bizarrely prophetic Wall-Streetprotest opening sequence, A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas (Warner Bros.) rumbles along with a surprisingly light touch and some jokes that actually zing. In its trademark racially inclusive, humorously offensive style, the third installment in the H&K franchise takes on two well-worn movie staples and plays them for all they’re worth: the holiday movie and the most overused gimmick of them all, 3D. The filmmakers own up to both though, with varying results: the 3D is annoying as usual, but certain sequences—like when dimwitted executives, wearing 3D glasses themselves, clumsily reach out to touch some holiday confetti—work. The Christmas trappings are a little more out of place—the appearance of (the real!) Santa Claus doesn’t really capture audience imagination anymore—but they can be excused. As far as any story goes, this one was a bit all over the place, but of course, that’s sort of the point. The trippier sequences (like the Claymation portion) don’t hold together too well, and the “resolution” at the end is completely preposterous (Kumar’s pregnant girlfriend telling him that on second thought, she doesn’t want him to quit smoking weed). What makes Harold & Kumar fun though, aside from not taking itself too seriously, is how all the delightfully zany stereotypes in the film, title characters included, almost feel like live-action Simpsons characters. And yes, NPH is back for another bizarre and cracked-out cameo! —Dan Heching

elieve it or not, Eating Out: Drama Camp (Ariztical Entertainment) is just one of two new films in Q. Allan Brocka’s sexually explicit gay romantic comedy series. Luckily for this installment, which takes many of the gang from the third film, Eating Out: All You Can Eat, and sends them to camp, where Brocka’s sometimes-ridiculous wit manages to be a little more digestible. Still, this is no Wet Hot American Summer. String bean Casey (Daniel Skelton) and his swarthy boyfriend, Zack (Chris Salvatore) get into a Los Angeles film-schoolstyle drama camp with their straight best friend, Jason (Garikayi Mutambirwa), that’s run by a flamboyant ex-actor named Dick Dickey (Drew Droege). Once

B

there, Zack falls hard for the (?)deliciously hunky—but straight(?)—Benji (Aaron Milo.) Pratfalls and scheming ensue. Drama Camp’s first plus is that it got rid of the ridiculous caricature Rebekah Kochan (only a cameo here) who played integral parts in the first three films but also managed to cheapen them. Sure, Drama Camp still feels cheap, but thanks to the wonderful Drew Droege of Chloe fame, it is more fun than most of its predecessors. And while the graphic sex is not surprising, (the film does star porn star Steven Daigle and Playgirl model Ronnie Kroelle) the sweet romance between Jason and a mysterious actress named Lilly (Gun Hill Road’s Harmony Santana) is. In fact, it might be one of the most honest depictions of trans romance on film. Brocka: who knew you had it in you? Good thing you still have Eating Out: The Open Season to throw it all back down the toilet. —Benjamin Solomon AMERICAN PIE aaron milo in Eating Out: Drama Camp

The Lyons

Curtain up The Lyons We Live here

THEATER

WWW.NEXTMAGAZINE.COM

By David Hurst he first act of Nicky Silver’s new comedy, The Lyons, may be one of the funniest I’ve ever seen. The setup is a hospital room where longtime married couple Ben and Rita Lyons, brilliantly played by the hilarious duo of Dick Latessa and Linda Lavin, are fighting with each other. Ben is dying of cancer and Rita is, well, waiting for him to die. She’s eager to redecorate the living room, so who can blame her? Not the audience, certainly, who are on the verge of tears from laughing so hard at Latessa’s ranting and Lavin’s verbal barbs and delicious facial gestures. Then their dysfunctional children show up, Kate Jennings Grant as their divorced, alcoholic daughter, Lisa, and Michael Esper as their partnered (or so we think) gay writer son, Curtis, who both add fuel to the proverbial Lyons fire. The comedic revelations build and build and the first act ends on a high note of laughter. Then comes Silver’s second act, where each successive scene is more of a letdown than the last. Starting with the unbelievably tired device of Lisa addressing the audience as if we were an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting (yawn), the play then reveals that Curtis is actually a deeply disturbed stalker whose contrived meeting with his obsession (who’s also gay) ends in a particularly unpleasant and unnecessary gay bashing. The Lyons ends on a decidedly downbeat note of resignation, despite an 11 o’clock monologue courtesy of Lavin that proves she’s indisputably one of the funniest comediennes working today. It’s a shame because there’s so much promise and potential in the first act. Silver just keeps getting in the way of himself in the second. Even worse is Zoe Kazan’s ridiculous play at Manhattan Theater Club, We Live Here. Despite a gorgeous set by John Lee Beatty and a mostly competent cast, it defies explanation why this respected theater company would nurture a clearly mediocre talent in a city that’s bursting with gifted playwrights who would give their soul for this kind of production. One hates to conjecture that Kazan’s family name (her grandfather was Elia Kazan) is propelling her acting and writing career, but

I’ve seen no evidence to the contrary. This includes We Live Here, a banal family drama of secretes, sisters and envy that’s defies belief from the first line. Oscar Isaac has charm as Daniel, the boy who used to date the twin sister who died in a terrible accident 12 years earlier, and is now dating the youngest daughter who was only six when the accident happened, even though Daniel also has eyes for the surviving twin…you get the picture. N The Lyons plays through November 20 at the Vineyard (108 E 15th St, VineyardTheater.org). We Live Here plays through November 6 at MTC (131 W 55th St, MTC-NYC.org).

By Peter Sherwood amed after a walkway alongside a beautiful stretch of sea in the South of France, La Promenade des Anglais brings a glorious touch of the Mediterranean to western Chelsea. At the hands of terrific toque Alain Allegretti, our entire evening was a simply grand, sweeping experience with an overwhelming explosion of food. It was just so marvelous to be in the room imbued with the periwinkle blue of the Cote d’Azur. We sat underneath a striped black and white umbrella painted on the ceiling, comfortably positioned in a banquette that made us feel like we had embarked upon an exclusive, glamorous transcontinental railway trip. Cocktails ran their course as we traveled, with a Lavender Lemonade crafted from 42 Below vodka infused with lavender, a touch of honey and a few squeezes of fresh lemon juice. The Espelette Margarita also climbed aboard, with Her-

N

54 NOVEMBER 4, 2011

radura tequila infused with Piment d’Espelette (a rousing pepper from the Basque country region) presiding over squirts of lime and triple sec. We gingerly skipped past the Kentucky Redhead with Bulleit bourbon, Canton ginger, Grand Marnier and ginger beer. We shifted toward white wine by the quartino in preparation for our food, before moving on to a full bottle. Since anything from Languedoc, France always catches my eye, the slightly fruity Hugues Beaulieu Picpoul de Pinet with a clean finish was first up, and did not disappoint. Fried zucchini flowers that were somewhat precociously listed as “beignets” could be called anything they wanted to be called. We loved them, and they were lovely to look upon with such a delicate batter. We leapt upon the crispy Provençale-inspired frog legs too, in garlic cream with Grecian Kalamata olives as salty accompaniment. The classic Italian dish vitello tonnato was deconstructed and reformulated, with

tongue-y sweetbreads that found a cozy home in fried capers and spicy French mustard. The gorgeous Provençale fish soup that we loved at Allegretti’s former eponymous restaurant has been resurrected in all its complex, flavored glory. At our kind waiter’s recommendation, monkfish covered in a cunning fig leaf threatened to challenge Adam and Eve while the fish itself was as darkly sensual as a torrid Sidney Sheldon novel. The entrée appeared with onion, striking cubes of bacon, thinly sliced potatoes and liquid bone marrow, consorting with a balsamic reduction. Medium-rare lamb chops were excellent, surrounded by a sturdy crust of Parmesan and fava beans, and grounded with a foundation of fried henof-the-woods mushrooms. Desserts were a lovely promenade indeed, and we reveled in the zucchini pound cake with an orb of olive oil gelato and pine-nut brittle. The pot de crème was outrageous,

fraught with a coffee factor, dulce de leche and whipped cream, with a feuilletine crisp to dapple the dessert. Bravo, grazie, merci and what have you, Monsieur Allegretti! N PriCES: Appetizers: $12–$18; Entrees: $18–$34; Alcohol: Full bar/wine/specialty cocktails

SHORT ORDER: La Promenade des Anglais brings a glorious touch of color and the breath of the Mediterranean to the western corridor of Chelsea, at the hands of terrific toque Alain Allegretti.

NO MAN LEFT BEHIND

SHOOTING BLANKS

BETTER OFF BLUE-BALLED

By Manuel Hung & Rod Steely I KNEAD YOU Will Helm in Pounded Down

Pounded Down (Raging Stallion, 1-877-327-0707, RagingStallion.com)

Y

ADULT

WWW.NEXTMAGAZINE.COM

MANUEL: Six weeks ago I raved about newcomer Will Helm in Falcon’s Retreat, so I was on Cloud 9½ when I saw this Latin-looking boy with a German name who’s really from France on the cover of Pounded Down. ROD: I know Will Helm is the raison d’être de Pounded Down, but have you seen Wilfried Knight and Kennedy Carter? For sheer versatility and contrast, you can’t beat Knight’s hairy swarthiness against Carter’s fair, tightly muscled, tattooed body. Knight’s on top, then Carter, then Knight again. MANUEL: RS makes us wait three scenes to get to coverboy Helm—first, Michael Brandon and Caedon Chase’s harness-andchains duet that results in one screaming

roughin’ it 2 (Falcon, 1-800-227-3717, FalconStudios.com) leeping on dirt, swatting mosquitoes, eating marshmallows covered in ashes and twig debris, squatting to poop in a pine forest—who doesn’t love camping?

S

ROD: Watching this sequel was like going camping with some of my favorite friends with benefits. One of the benefits is when Roman Heart brings along a friend like Andrew Jakk. Morning sex in and out of the tent and in and out of Jakk’s sweet blond ass had me pitching my own tent. MANUEL: Who knew Heart’s such a good top? Too bad he dry-spurts a noncumshot, especially after Jakk’s cinemagenic thick ’n’ white man-gasm. The only thing whiter was Casey Monroe, who, fucking Parker London, looked like a poodle humping a Clydesdale. ROD: Give me a hottie like London on his

62 NOVEMBER 4, 2011

orgasm and a second poorly faked cumshot, then furry Trent Locke bottoming for sexy German Turk Aybars. ROD: In the end (yes, pun intended), it’s all about Will Helm in all his lean leatherlite glory. Helm fucks and fucks and fucks, and when he finally shoots, everyone knows about it. This isn’t the old shoot-the-same-orgasm-fromthree-different-angles editing trick. Helm is Old Faithful with one long, continuous stream. MANUEL: Helm tops real-life boyfriend Kriss Aston. The two have worked as a couple for other studios, but with RS, they’ve let latex come between them, which may explain the lack of fireworks. Still, even with average fucking, I’m always up for watching Helm’s geyser action. Come again anytime, Will!

MOUNTAIN TOP Casey Monroe in Roughin’ It 2 knees servicing Monroe any time. This tattooed pair gave me so much wood that when they started rubbing their sticks together, I was afraid we’d start a forest fire! Finally, seeing D.O. eat out always-perfect Erik Rhodes had me craving s’more ass. MANUEL: Ah, so that white liquid trail dripping from Rhodes’ hole wasn’t lube, sweat and ass juice—it was marshmallow! And I loved the un-Falcon-like cum-eating facial D.O. delivered. Roughin’ It 2 is one of this year’s most beautifully shot porn movies. Ain’t nothing rough about it, though. Every frame is a well-composed, perfectly lit, crisp image. Typically, porn with such high-end cinematography is over-produced and spontaneity-free, with sex that feels “directed” and sterile. That’s only slightly true here.
