Broadway's Same-Sex Sensation
The concept, now in its third year is awesome - to make great show tunes overtly gay via gender-reversal... i.e., a hunky group of male Broadway stars singing 'I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair,' dressed only in towels. Below, you can see some excerpts from last year's Broadway Backwards 2!
My pals Stephen & Kevin invited a group of friends to see this as a pre-birthday fest for Kevin (pictured below), after a lovely dinner at 44 1/2 (coming later this week).
One highlight was a duet real-life partners Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka (pictured right)- 'Take Me As I Am,' the lesbian number from 'Rent.'
Living Broadway legends on stage included Sandy Duncan, Lainie Kazan, Charles Busch, and Len Cariou, complemented by a literal who's who of current up-and-coming musical stars.
Nearly every single one of the 20 numbers was a show-stopper.
Watch some highlights from last year's Same-Sex Show-Tune-fest:
And here's Kevin, looking just terrific!
