On Friday, November 3, the Performing Arts Center at 32 Below in New Milford will open 2 By Fierstein: The International Stud (part one of the multiple Tony Award-winning Torch Song Trilogy) and On Tidy Endings (from the award-winning Safe Sex). Both one act plays are written by Connecticut local, Harvey Fierstein. Scroll down for a sneak peek!

In The International Stud, the life of Arnold Beckoff, a lovable torch song-singing drag performer living in New York City in the late 1970s is told with humor, joy, and a few songs as he struggles through love, loss, and the challenges of walking in heels.

Set in the late 1980s, On Tidy Endings is a funny and ultimately poignant portrait of how the universal experience of losing a loved one is reexamined in the context of AIDS, when a gay man and a straight woman meet to tidy up loose ends following the death of the man they both loved.

The casts include: Aaron Kaplan (Bethel), Joseph Russo, Jacqueline Decho Holm, Patrick Fergus (all New Milford), and Beth Bonnabeau (Washington). Direction, scenic, lighting, and sound design are all by Bill Hughes.

2 By Fierstein: The International Stud and On Tidy Endings runs November 3,4 10,11,12 at 8:00 p.m. on Fridays & Saturdays and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 12. Tickets are $15 at the door for general admission. The plays are recommended for audiences over 13 years of age. For more information, visit "The PAC at 32 Below" on Facebook.
