Lincoln Center Theater's 'Platform Series' Continues with DADA WOOF PAPA HOT Stars, 12/11

Lincoln Center Theater's Platform Series, a forum for public discussion between Lincoln Center Theater artists and interested theatergoers, continues its 18th season on Friday, December 11 at 6pm with PATRICK BREEN and JOHN BENJAMIN HICKEY, the stars of LCT's current Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater production of DADA WOOF PAPA HOT, which began previews on Thursday, October 15, and opened on Monday, November 9.

Platform Series events take place in the early evening in the lobby of the Vivian Beaumont Theater (150 West 65th Street). Admission is free and open to all; however, seating in the lobby is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis only, beginning at a half hour before the talk. (Speakers and schedules are subject to change. Call 212-501-3100 to confirm on the day of the event.)

Alan and Rob are an older married couple with a three-year-old daughter and a life they fought for decades to be allowed to lead. But in the course of one school year, Alan, Rob and their friends struggle with what it means to be married with children at this head-spinning cultural moment. By turns comic and serious, DADA WOOF PAPA HOT asks the question: are the challenges of gay dads the same as those of straight ones, or is there something fundamentally different about being a gay parent?
