The Storefront presents an encore performance of Phil Geoffrey Bond’s short story, My Queer Youth, following the success of it’s first performance last April as part of the Friday Night Stories series. The series strives to theatricalize short stories, with a cast of singers and actors.
Included in the cast are a myriad of performers familiar to the cabaret scene, as well as many performers from the Storefront company. Among the cast: Tom Andersen, Lisa Asher, Bobby Belfry, Phil Geoffrey Bond, Scott Coulter, Brandon Cutrell, Erik Pickering and Ric Ryder.
My Queer Youth is the humorous story of a young man growing up gay in the cornfields of Indiana. From childhood memories of Osh-Kosh-Be-Gosh playclothes, to getting up the nerve to ask a boy out on a first date – My Queer Youth is the coming-of-age tale of a fay little boy carving out an existence in the heartland of America. The featured music performed live during the evening will include compositions by Michael Rupert and Jerry Colker, Stephen Schwartz, Stephen Sondheim and Lennie Watts.
