Drew Droege (Drunk History, Bob’s Burgers) will bring his self-penned solo show Bright Colors and Bold Patterns to the Barrow Street Theatre for three performances from September 16-18 before transferring to Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles. Drama Desk Award winner Michael Urie (Buyer & Cellar, Ugly Betty) will direct the production.
Bright Colors and Bold Patterns is described as follows: "Josh and Brennan are about to get married in Palm Springs on a lovely Saturday afternoon. However, the night before becomes a drunken, drug-fueled scream riot, because their friend Gerry has arrived, furious that their invitation says, 'Please refrain from wearing bright colors or bold patterns.' In the struggle for equality, what do we really want? What do we lose? And is there any cocaine left?"
"I cannot wait for Barrow Street’s audience to experience Drew Droege live," says Urie. "He is the funniest person I know and his play is food (and drink) for thought."
Droege is best known for his online parody videos of downtown indie it girl darling Chloe Sevigny. He is a regular on the Logo series Cocktails & Classics (hosted by Urie) and has appeared on Transparent, Bob’s Burgers, Drunk History, 2 Broke Girls, House Of Lies, Kroll Show, Key & Peele, MTV’s Acting Out, New Girl, Happy Endings, How I Met Your Mother, and Baby Daddy.
