The little gay musical that could heads to New York
It looks like My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding, which made its debut at the Toronto Fringe Festival in 2009, can carve another notch in its matrimonial bedpost. David Hein and Irene Carl Sankoff’s charming lo-fi creation—replete with such educational ditties as “A Short History of Gay Marriage in Canada” and “Don’t Take Your Lesbian Moms to Hooters”—has been picked up by the New York Musical Theatre Festival, an event that once launched beloved gay hits Next to Normal and Altar Boyz towards Broadway success. Between this and Proposition Eight’s defeat, this is proving to be a great week for gay marriage in all its forms.
