Love! Valour! Compassion!

7/16 – 8/30, Mon – Thu

What: Terrence McNally’s Love! Valour! Compassion! is the story of friendship, loyalty, lust and love between an intergenerational group of gay men who gather over the course of one summer in a turn-of-the-century farmhouse in Duchess County, New York. By turns hilarious, sexy, and deeply moving, indeed their journey allows each man to claim a deeper depth of love, valour, and compassion for themselves, for one another, and for the unknown road ahead.

Winner of the Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Obie, and New York Drama Critics’ Circle awards for Best Play, Love! Valour! Compassion!

The Rise and Fall (and Rise) of Martha Stewart

Sun, 8/12  – Tues 8/14

What: “The Rise and Fall (and Rise) of Martha Stewart” tells the fascinating story of the woman who changed the way we live our lives by daring us to try harder. From her humble beginnings in Nutley, New Jersey to her empire-building years in Westport, Connecticut, to her highly-publicized stint in federal prison, this is a chronicle of epically blind ambition set to the music of artists as varied as Beyonce, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Adele and Metallica.

Where: Cabaret at the Crown & Anchor, 247 Commercial St. | Directions

Midnight at The Never Get

Thu, 9/6 – Sat, 9/8

What: Midnight at The Never Get imagines two men who never existed at a time that very much did. Trevor Copeland and Arthur Brightman have the perfect New York romance – but it’s 1965 and against the law.

So in the back room of The Never Get, an illegal Greenwich Village gay bar, they put together a show called Midnight, a queer nightclub act where Arthur writes love songs for Trevor to sing to a man. By the late 60’s, tensions in the Village reach a breaking point, and the lovers find themselves caught in a relationship they can’t control and a movement they don’t understand.

When: Thu, 9/6 – Sat, 9/8 at 7 pm

Where: The Art House, 214 Commercial Street | Directions

Cost: $40.00; VIP $65 | Buy Ticket
