On Tuesday, January 3rd, Other Side Productions will hold a benefitperformance for Cooper Square Committee, presenting “Accidentally Like a Martyr”, a gay themed comedy at Paradise Factory Theatre at 64 E. 4th St. The play by Grant James Varjas is “set in a bar populated by men from different backgrounds and generations who are once both regulars and irregular, the play depicts them at their hangout as they while away a seemingly quiet winter evening. Fueled by drinks and other stimulants, those gathered reveal secrets, open old wounds, and covet new visitors in a funny and poignant manner that is both original and reminiscent of landmark plays such as Mart Crowley’s “The Boys in the Band” and Tennessee Williams’ “Small Craft Warnings”, plays that served as touchstones for gay people then and now.” There will be a pre-theater reception,with cocktails and appetizers, at 59-61 East 4th St., 4th floor loft at 6 pm, followed by the play at 8 pm. We have a few tickets remaining and are offering last minute tickets for $20 to our supporters. You can purchase them by clicking on the donate button on our homepage. The Cooper Square Committee is raising funds towards their plans, in partnership with the Ali Forney Center, to develop transitional housing for homeless LGBT youth on East 13th Street.
