Broadway performers/actors Todd Buonopane (30 Rock Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and Michael Buchanan (The Book of Mormon on Broadway The Addams Familyi) have been friends for nearly 20 years. And they’ve been gay even longer than that! But how did they get soooooo gay? Todd & Michael will explore that question with the songs of Broadway, 80’s pop and even the Muppets in SONGS THAT MADE US GAY playing for two nights at the Post Office Cafe and Cabaret in PTOWN and they told QUEERGURU all about it

 

 

 

PS Yesterday we interviewed @ToddBuonopan  &  @buckybuchanan91on the eve of their new show SONGS THAT MADE US GAY at @PostOfficePtown (bit.ly/3SKggom) but TONIGHT we went to see them perform in their hilarious show and best of all IT MADE US GAY

Miss Richfield 1981 and her Twenty Summers in Ptown

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , ,

 

It has become something of an annual treat for Queerguru to sit down with the indomitable Miss Richfield 1981 even though she is not averse to aiming a few barbs at us, We went to talk about her brand-new show, “Cancel Cultured Pearls”, which is a guide to surviving our sensitive, new world. She’s singing and dancing and celebrating this new cancel culture thing! A

As it is also her 20th Anniversary appearing in #Ptown where she is considered as Drag Royalty, we simply couldn’t meet up at the Pilgrim House empty-handed

Randy Roberts : You Need Us To Make The USA

Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , ,

 

 

In Randy Robert’s latest show One Of The Girls who’s One Of The Boys‘ he knocks it out of the ballpark with his excellent impersonations of the likes of Joan Rivers and of course his fabulous Cher.  However, for Queerguru the show goes to an even higher plane when he’s performing as himself again. 

Last night he had the audience in raptures with his take on the Sondheim classic The Ladies Who Lunch.  But it was what followed that had us all up on our feet.  

It was a  queer patriotic song that Randy Roberts makes her very own in her show that was originally sung in the award-winning Off-Broadway musical known as Howard Crabtree’s When Pigs Fly in honor of the theatrical wizard who created it. The year  was 1996 when the AIDS pandemic had unleashed a whole new wave of homophobia and this very clever ditty reminded everyone “You Need US to Make The U.S.A.” Sadly Crabtree died of AIDS one week before the Show’s premiere: but this witty rousing song lives on ……in this case thanks to Randy Roberts
