Two fresh gay themed shows in time for San Francisco Pride: “Slipping” and “Lips Together, Teeth Apart”

"Lips Together, Teeth Apart"


Kevin M. Thomas brings us two new progressive theater options in San Francisco, both at the New Conservatory Theatre Center. “Lips Together, Teeth Apart” was written by Terrence McNally and tells the story of two straight couples who find themselves on the gay inhabited destination known as Fire Island.  While “Slipping” is a four character play that deals with Eli and his mother who move at the beginning of the show from SF to Iowa. Reasons behind the move aren’t told to us at first, adding a bit of intrigue. But through well crafted flashbacks, we learn a bit about Eli’s interest in another young man who can’t seem to come out of the closet and his mother’s indiscretions. Thomas had a chance to sit down with Evan Johnson from “Slipping” and “Cameron Weston, from “Lips Together, Teeth Apart” to learn more about the shows. Watch the video below and get tickets here:
