The Williamstown Theatre Festival production of The Opposite of Sex, the musical's East Coast premiere, began August 9th and will play through August 20th. The musical features music and lyrics by Douglas J. Cohen with a book by Cohen and Robert Jess Roth, who also directs. It is based on the screenplay of the movie of the same title by Don Roos. The musical premiered in San Francisco in 2004.
The cast includes Kerry Butler (Hairspray, Little Shop of Horrors), four-time Tony-nominee Gregg Edelman (Wonderful Town, Into the Woods), David Burtka (Gypsy), Kaitlin Hopkins (The Great American Trailer Park Musical, Bat Boy), Herndon Lackey (Parade, Les Miserables), as well as Ian Scott McGregor and Lance Rubin. The musical recounts the misadventures of DeDee Truitt, who seduces the lover of her gay half-brother. Things become more complicated when DeDee becomes pregnant. "Lessons of life and love are learned as they all confront and explore their own sexuality, learn to let go of their traditional beliefs and ultimately discover that what they really want is what Dedee calls the opposite of sex - lasting, committed and loving relationships."
