As you would expect, here at Von Gutenberg we certainly champion free expression of any point of view (if that p.o.v. condones freedom for all). Even the quickest perusal of our lifestyle events (see the latest in issue #9) or a regular read of this blog you’ll see we have supported plenty an artistic or cultural expression. Be thee working and living in the LGBT community, or be thee involved in fetish/alternative/kink couture design, modeling or performing, you know V.G. will not only support but continue to report on all the good works our family of friends are into. The Queerly Festival, produced by The Horse Trade Theatre Group of NYC, is one such grouping of events Von Gutenberg is behind, celebrating as it does Pride Week, NYC.
What’s even more interesting about this week of theatre pieces is that the show “Song, Word and Deed,” happening on 6/26, 8pm at the Kraine Theatre location is being directed and emcee-d by our very own editor-in-chief, Ralph Greco, Jr (Ralph has also written two pieces for the show.) The hour plus will also feature one of our past writers, Tom Kennedy, as well as techno music maven Madam Marvelous performing a song (read issue #9 to learn more about the provocative M.M.)
It’s going to be quite the Von Gutenberg family affair.
The first annual Queerly Festival, which runs 6/25-7/3 at both Horse Trade Theatre locations-the Kraine Theatre at 85 W. 4th in the village, NYC and UNDER St. Marks, at 94 St. Mark’s Place from 6/25-to-7/3, is presented a wide range of shows. Ralph’s is a variety hour of readings, one short one act and song, while there are other shows in the full week of the program that includes drag cabaret, Karaoke and lots more.
There is bound to be more than one show to tickle your naughty sensibilitieswill prove to a chock-full celebration of LGBT culture running between and , and one we are sure you do not want to miss.
