MOE BERTRAN STARS IN LOVE SCENES

FLORIDA PREMIERE OF THE LGBT HIT 

Empire Stage in Fort Lauderdale presents the Florida Premiere of David Pumo's Love Scenes, "An irresistible sextet of solo slices of lavender life." – Chicago Free Press. Voted Best of San Francisco Fringe Festival. 

Moe Bertran plays 6 characters including a twenty-year-old hustler falling for his kinky mentor; a Broadway producer in a locker room brawl with the starlet who's after his man; a sixty something martini drinker whose partner wants to have an open sexual relationship; and a drag diva ending her search for a rich husband to settle for true love. 

Love Scenes comes direct from sold out runs in New York, L.A., San Francisco, Chicago, London, Dublin and Atlantis Cruise Lines, gathering praise from critics along the way.  Garet Scott of Empire Stage says "We're very excited to be producing this show for our audiences in Fort Lauderdale. Moe Bertan and David Pumo are a fantastic creative couple and we are thrilled to welcome them to South Florida for the first time."
