Loaded with Joe, Little David, ELeven and Wayne Hoffman. It's clever. It's thought-provoking, Sometimes cringe-inducing. I'm recommending it largely because the two characters presented are not at all far-fetched. They embody parts of almost every gay man who has ever crossed a street in New York City. (Did the author, Elliot Ramón Potts, go to a gay organ bank when assembling them?)
Is it possible to praise one half of a two-person play much more than the other, or would that be like eating the filling but ignoring the crust of a cherry pie? I ask this because the older character was much better written than the younger one. It's as if the younger one was just a foil who said a lot of "Oh so what you're saying is"s. He was like a machine that fires tennis balls at a pro who repeatedly zings them over the net. Funny how each of us came away with different positive opinions about the merits of Loaded, and I do think you ought to read Joe's review because he was particularly moved by some of the dialogue.
There is brief nudity. There could have been more.
