Based on the international best-selling book by Dan Anderson and Maggie Berman, Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man is written by Matt Murphy and directed by Tim Drucker. Specially priced tickets ($45 - which includes a cocktail) are available for both the 3 PM and 8 PM performances on Saturday, May 19th, and are available now by using the code MOMTIPS at www.SexTipsPlay.com. Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man is performed at The 777 Theatre (777 Eighth Avenue, between 47th and 48th Streets).
Says playwright Matt Murphy, "Everyone deserves to learn the secrets to great sex, even your Mom . . . After all, sex is the reason Mother's Day exists in the first place. We are pleased to offer these two performances, where our expert advice will be geared specifically to the moms in attendance. Here at Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man, we plan on bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase "Mother knows best."
This new comedy is set inside a local university auditorium, where the featured event is an interactive discussion with the author of Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man. With the help of Stefan, a hunky stage assistant, author Dan Anderson encourages the shy and studious moderator of the event, Robyn, to follow her dreams while following his tips. Based on the international best-selling book, this world premiere production welcomes audiences into a fun-filled world of foolproof moves and insider advice that could only be culled from that most insightful of individuals: the gay man.
Presented by Shawn Nightingale and Matt Murphy, Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man stars Jason Michael Snow (last seen on Broadway in Book of Mormon, and the composer, co-writer and co-producer of the recent internet sensation Russian Broadway Shut Down) as Dan, Lindsay Nicole Chambers (Lysistrata Jones, Forbidden Broadway, "Submissions Only") as Robyn, and Andrew Brewer (Cougar The Musical) as Stefan.
Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man was written by Dan Anderson and Maggie Berman. First published in 1997 -- before TV shows and films such as "Will and Grace," "Sex and the City" and My Best Friend's Wedding reflected the straight girl/gay guy friendship in mainstream pop culture; and years before the "Queer Eye" guys introduced the world to the notion of better living through gay advice -- the book instantly became a national best-seller. Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man was praised by The Daily News for "offering witty-and yes, explicit-descriptions of all manner of how-to's;" by The New York Post as "straightforward and saucy . . . a play-by-play account of how to make the most of every moment;" and by Salon.com as "a cannily entertaining romp through the nuts and bolts of sex from the male perspective." Now a cult classic, it has also been published in Germany, Japan, Taiwan, Brazil, the Netherlands, Australia and England, and will come out in France this spring. Recently, the book also played a supporting role in the movie Hope Springs by sparking passionate romance between the characters played by Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones.
Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man began performances on January 22, 2014 and opened on February 9th.
