The Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus will present “Two Boys Kissing” by Joshua Shank, based on the Lambda Literary Award-winning novel by David Levithan.
“Two Boys Kissing” will be produced in collaboration with Blackfriars Theatre and will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on March 24 at the Hochstein School of Music, 50 N. Plymouth Ave., Rochester.
The production tells the story of Harry and Craig, two teen boys who are taking part in a 33-hour kiss to set a new world record. “Two Boys Kissing” also tells the story of another couple, Ryan and Avery, who are beginning to fall in love, and the story of Connor, a young man whose sexual identity has been discovered by his conservative parents.
During the production, Nicholas D. Rogers, Justin Burr, Scott Shutts, Eddie Coomber, Mark Brummitt and Stefan Cohen, of the Blackfriars Theatre, under the direction of Danny Hoskins will narrate the tale. The Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus, under the direction of Robert Strauss, will act as a Greek chorus representing the generation of gay men affected by the AIDS epidemic.
Advance sale tickets are $20 for adults, $17 for students/seniors and $8 for children. Tickets can be purchased at Parkleigh, Equal Grounds, at or from any of the chorus members. Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $25.
