Two Boys Kissed

The big premier concerts of Two Boys Kissing was rhis past weekend.


It went really well. With so many moving parts ans so few rehearsals together, it could have been a disaster. But it wasn’t. 

I believe it was well received. I saw audience members crying. One woman as she passed (while wiping her eyes) smiled and said, “These are happy tears.”

I got emotional in spots, as did others. 

As I expected, the piece challenged rhe performers as well as the audience. It’s 1 hour 10 minutes of an emotional arc, with a quiet intro and a quiet exit and no applause breaks in between.  There was almost a reverence about it– like the audience was attending a gay mass.  Or funeral. 

I jokingly referred to it at some point as a very adult version of an after school special. 

The composer (Joshua Shank) and the author (David Levithan) were at all three performances. And even their parents came. 

It was a difficult yet cathartic end to a hard week. It has left me physically and emotionally drained. 

But it was good.
