About this show

NEW YORK PREMIERE! Do gay men become their mothers? That is the question asked in Leslie Jordan's hilarious and touching new romp Fruit Fly. Mr. Jordan travels back in time using show-and-tell to take the audience on the ride of a lifetime as childhood recollections combine with perilous teenage shenanigans. From the day a teenage Leslie sits down with his poor, clueless mother and informs her he has decided to forego college in order to become a female impersonator, to a 53-year-old Leslie and his mother on a gay Alaskan cruise, where he witnesses her astounding metamorphosis -- and whose only real concern about a gay cruise to Alaska is that she doesn't want to go ice fishing! -- Mr. Jordan is in his element. His storytelling skills are abound and make for an evening of fun and thought-provoking theater.
