Sleeping With Straight Men

After an Off-Broadway run and three different productions in London, Sleeping With Straight Men finally comes to Ft. Lauderdale!

"Sleeping With Straight Men, having its premiere in the Theatre Rhino Studio, is another successful step by Larsen to reach beyond the reputation of his Making Porn et al. oeuvre. The first step came with A Few Gay Men last year, and this new play reinforces the developing notion that Larsen is a writer and director to be reckoned with."

"Torn from the headlines, but a lot more entertaining, "Sleeping With Straight Men" may turn out to be this summer's surprise hit play. The 90-minute romp had the audience at Friday's opening cheering at the end." SF CHRONICLE

"...all characters are granted more depth than one might anticipate at first, and dialogue is quite well honed to deftly reveal contradictory, potentially land-mined personality traits. Sans intermission, well-paced tale has an arrow-like narrative trajectory that gradually becomes less comic and more tragic as it goes should repeat its local success in upcoming remounts." VARIETY

"What distinguishes this production is the real-life familiarity of the characters’ behavior, even as their circumstances approach burlesque. In addition to his clever way with words, Larsen is a director with an eye for nuance, as well as choreographed episodes, and his jokes often find a second wave of laughter through their staging." BAY AREA REPORTER
"This camp, colourful, and consummately comic production is based on a true story that has a devastating sting in its tail." GAY TIMES OF LONDON
