Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man was written by Dan Anderson and Maggie Berman. First published in 1997 -- before TV shows and films such as “Will and Grace,” “Sex and the City” and My Best Friend’s Wedding reflected the straight girl/gay guy friendship in mainstream pop culture; and years before the “Queer Eye” guys introduced the world to the notion of better living through gay advice -- the book instantly became a national best-seller. Now it has hit New York City with a live interactive bang, leaving the audience, laughing, full of knowledge and thoroughly turned on!
This new comedy is set inside a local university auditorium, where the featured event is an interactive discussion with the author of Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man. With the help of Stefan, a hunky stage assistant, author Dan Anderson encourages the shy and studious moderator of the event, Robyn, to follow her dreams while following his tips. Based on the international best-selling book, this world premiere production welcomes audiences into a fun-filled world of foolproof moves and insider advice that could only be culled from that most insightful of individuals: the gay man.
The cast includes Jason Michael Snow (Book of Mormon, South Pacific, Saved) as Dan, Lindsay Nicole Chambers (Lysistrata Jones, Forbidden Broadway, “Submissions Only”) as Robyn, and Andrew Brewer (Cougar The Musical) as Stefan. These three drag the audience in and capture their undivided attention for a hysterical ninety minutes. Chambers is adorably awkward, Snow is quick, sharp and incredibly sassy and lastly Brewer is sexy as hell. This stunning talent combined with the lighting, sound, audience participation, awkward sex talk, and a strip tease on the moon leaves the audience begging for more.
Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man is now playing Off-Broadway at The 777 Theater. This show is highly encouraged for audiences over the age of 18, gay, straight, married or single, its a great show for everyone.
