Photo Flash: SEX TIPS FOR STRAIGHT WOMEN FROM A GAY MAN Open 5/4 - 5/7

Lott Entertainment Presents Brings SEX TIPS FOR STRAIGHT WOMEN FROM A GAY MAN to Houston. SEX TIPS takes the audience on a hilarious and wild ride where no topic is taboo and the insider 'tips' come straight from the source: a gay man.


Written by Matt Murphy and based on the best-selling book of the same title, the play is set at a local university auditorium where the English Department holds its monthly meet the authors' event. Robyn is the shy and studious moderator of the event and this month's featured author is Dan Anderson who wrote, "Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man." The third character is a hunky stage assistant of Eastern European descent, Stefan. Thwarting Robyn's attempts to moderate a scholarly discussion of the book, Dan aims to entertain those in attendance with a highly theatrical, audience-interactive sex tip seminar.

Directed by Tim Drucker, SEX TIPS is now in its 2nd smash year Off-Broadway in New York City, where it began performances on January 22, 2014 and opened on February 9, 2014. The production is based on the book "Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man" written by Dan Anderson and Maggie Berman. First published in 1997, the book championed the straight girl/gay guy friendship in mainstream pop culture and instantly became a national best seller. The book was praised by the New York 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, the book has also been published in Germany, Japan, Taiwan, Brazil, the Netherlands, Australia, England, and France. The play has received the same adulation from the media with TheaterMania touting "SEX TIPS is one of the best date-night shows you'll see this year. Breathlessly entertaining! Uproariously funny! Hysterically titillating!" and Michael Musto for OUT Magazine giving the show, "Two wet thumbs up!" Broadway World calls the show "a night of fun and exhausting laughter that makes you feel good in all the wrong places" and the academics from Columbia Spectator call it "hysterical and better than sex!"

Produced by Matt Murphy and Shawn Nightingale, SEX TIPS FOR STRAIGHT WOMEN FROM A GAY MAN has scenic design by Luke Cantarella, costume design by Tilly Grimes, lighting design by Brian Tovar, and video and sound design by Randy Blair.
