“Marvin wants it all: a loving ex-wife, an adoring son, and a handsome lover- all living together in harmony. Unfortunately, we don’t always get what we want. Add one psychiatrist and a couple of lesbians from next door, shake, and serve alongside a nation turning a blind eye to a spreading plague…”

This is what the artists who created this production are doing for their charity:
“We will be speaking about Pride For Youth & The Long Island Crisis Center at each performance, as well as collecting donations for them and writing about them in our program. We will also be making one of our performances a benefit, and donating the proceeds entirely to their organization.”
