Anyone else think this strange couple swathed in fallen-antebellum-window-treatment-blue satin looks more like two sweaty men? (And equally baffling, why didn't they capitalize on Ms. Linney, as they did the wet Audra for 110? Isn't Laura the event here?)

What's the point of starting a thread about the poster art if you're not going to even post a photo of said poster art?

Obviously, just to piss you off.

Actually, I just haven't located it yet. But it's on every discount mailer, and the poster is ubiquitous. I shall hunt it down.

It doesn't piss me off. I just don't understand the purpose of starting a discussion thread about something without providing whatever the heck it is you want people to talk about.

Wow.

That is homoerotic. But, I didn't think there was a gay sex scene in "Liaisons" (Granted, I haven't seen it, I'm basing that thought off of what I know of the plot)

Bravo! I still say, looks like two fellas -- outtakes from HGTV "Decorating On A Dime."

(Naw, there's no gay scene in it. It's a very straight story, though the whole three-way fantasy angle invites some analysis. Everyone is turned on thinking of everyone else gettting it on with someone.)

There is no explicit homoeroticism in Liaisons, either the book or the play. You'd never know it by the artwork, however. I THINK the one on top is supposed to be a woman, which sort of makes sense since the Marquise is undoubtedly the most evil person in a work full of evil people.

Yeah, it's a strange choice fo a show starring the lovely, all woman Miss Linney, known as a hirsute blonde. Why doesn't the woman in the picture have her hair down? Why is her back as muscular as an Olympian's, (French health clubs 300 years ago were fierce arenas for upper class dames) unless it's designed to suggest androgeny.

I think because if you look closely enough at the figure on top you can discern the outline of a woman's breast -- but that was only when I was looking at a full-sized poster in Shubert Alley.

re: the homoerotic (?) 'Liaisons' poster art

IT reminded me of the Rape of the Sabine Women. Not homoerotic at all.

No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

I still need to find a pictures of:

1. straight guy being blindfolded.
2. guys in a locker room photos with dirty socks
3. two guys wrestling.
4. two drunk fraternity guys passed out lying next to one another

^^^ those are DEFINITELY homoerotic for me! re: the homoerotic (?) 'Liaisons' poster art

Jaystarr, do you ever actually contribute anything of value to a thread? Honestly, it's unnecessary to turn EVERY thread into your playground.

Auggie, it seems like a lost opportunity to feature the magnificent Laura Linney. They could have achieved the seductive tone and connected it to the show they are promoting. There is nothing 'Rococo France' about it.

Jaystarr, what's the point of posting these pictures? There is none whatsoever. This is a thread about the poster.

It's clearly a woman. The waist/hips and hair make up for the muscular back.

I don't see how anyone looks at that picture and immediately thinks it's two men getting it on. Check out that waist, how many men do you know with such a small waist?
