You know what? I'm not done talking about spotlight stealing yet, Jason. No - I'm just getting started. Did you know that we're not the only two gay men on this continent who enjoy the limelight? (Yeah, I knew it too... but just bear with me while I get this intro done, mmmkay?)
My blog buddy (and future Plus One, when he's done with this show!) Lucas Brooks of Top 2 Bottom blog is an actor/student and a vertically challenged top who's finally taking to the stage THIS WEEKEND to rant and air his aggressions in his one-man show, VGL 5'4" Top.
Wait, a gay top blogger who rants? Are we sure this isn't ME in the show?
Yes. Yes we are.
Because I am lucky enough to be a tall top. (Why recent "meet-ups" have thought me to be a bottom are beyond me... (even though my friend and Plus One Alum David of Manchattan's impression of me saying "Oohhhh I only drink vodka with JUICE IN IT!" may be a clue that I refuse to accept.))
You're going to want to go see this show. I mean, even the premise sounds interesting plus fun:
Sick and tired of short jokes and snobbery amongst the gay population, Lucas Brooks, a sexually frustrated and vertically challenged young actor is ready to fight back. Armed with only a laptop and a quick wit, our gallant hero addresses the loaded topic of sex and how it divides us, rather than unites us, in a time of need.The plight of a short top? Imagine it! Every guy you see assumes bottom. You're a pitcher heading to the pen, only to have them throw that stupid mask and glove at you. Imagine being pigeonholed just because you're short enough to fit through a pigeonhole (what the fuck IS a pigeonhole, anyway? Is it tight at least? No? Damn.)
Oh, and Lucas is doing the show in his UNDERWEAR. (ka-chingggggg!)
Well folks, the show is this coming weekend May 1, 2009 through May 3, 2009 (with a reception at 7PM and performance at 8PM.) Tickets will net you less than a single well drink with tip (10 clams). AND none other than YOURS TRULY will be there, so come say hi!.
But wait, if my super sexy presence isn't enough to sell you the ticket, allow me to break this bit of news:
A deaf person is coming one night.
Now, if you love deaf people, this may have already sold you on the theatrical experience. If not, let me tell you WHY this is awesome: on the night that the deaf guy is there, there will have to be a translator.
And that translator is none other than CAPTAINL0VER OF YOUTUBE! You know him, the hot, usually shirtless guy who does sign language music videos to Britney Spears.
I posted about him here and here .
Of course CaptainL0ver is the cherry on TOP (ooooh unavoidable pun - damn you, English language!) of an already gay sundae (one with rainbows and unicorn eye sprinkles).
You're going to want to buy a ticket here.
Join me this weekend as we revel in Lucas' trials and tribulations, and try to get the numbers of other hot gays in the audience.
Hey, Lucas! What do you say about having stickers outside the door that say "Top" "Bottom" and "Verse" so we can pair off without fear of the Zero Hour revelation of two tops or bottoms, resulting in the night ending in a game of Parcheesi?
Hey, just an idea.
See you guys at VGL 5'4" Top!
And, if you just can't get enough of the show, check out Lucas' two-part interview "Inside a VGL 5'4" Top" (LOVE the title hahaha... every OTHER tops dream, right?)
