Then sitting like an ape on the sofa with a hankie and the same old porno tape


You might think that after hobnobbing with a true blue Broadway starlet (no lie..thanks to this girl there is only one degree of separation between me and Linda Eder, Idina Menzel AND..are you sitting?....Patti LuPone!) last weekend that I'd have had my fill of musical theater. Silly! The touring production of The Full Monty was in town this week, guys. C'mon, stay with me here. I must say that any show that has a hot stripper shaking his naked ass at me (seated in Row 1) within the first few minutes is gonna be forgiven a multitude of sins. No need. This is a funny show with sharp writing (by Terrence McNally...Ummm... Love, Valour, Compassion anyone?) and some good tunes that stick with you. I enjoyed the movie, but this play was actually a more satisfying visual and auditory feast. Well, OK, not a feast, but it was a lipsmacking snack that tides you over. Witty reparte + catchy tunes + men running around in their underpants (and two of the five are capital HOTT)= a fine way for this kind of boy to spend an evening (and a refreshing alternative to the title above).

Dude, you're back! With an embarassment of riches! 5 new posts!

I quite like the film Full Monty, but have never seen the stage musical. It's good to know that my experience is not likely to be like The Produces (enjoyed the film, didn't enjoy the musical). The Producers would have been improved greatly with the addition of said hot stripper and naked ass.

Well, I loved The Producers so you may not want to go by me.

So few things spring to mind that wouldn't be enhanced by naked canteloupe-y ass.

I expected to love The Producers, and I wonder if the production was part of the 'meh' that I felt. Maybe I just have no soul, no joy in my spirit?

Re: the ass. Word.

I just laughed and laughed and loved the songs, too. It was very BROAD and that's not for everyone. I'm interested to see what they do with the new movie. The really flaming fellow is played by none other than Bree's George from 'Desperate Housewives', reprising his role from Broadway.

Hmmmmm, The Full Monty.

Mikey, sweetie, you can leave ... your hat on ...

Creepy George is actually a lot more believable as a mincer, than a hetero stalker to me. I mean, I was never sure if he wanted to 'do' Bree, or try on her shoes.

Michael said...

Ummmm.....::cringing:: I don't actually watch the show. I know! By all rights I should love it, but I can't. He's played gay a few times and he KILLED as Snoopy, but he's apparently very not-gay.

'The Full Monty' affirmed my newfound affection for chunk (thanks FOURFOUR! fourfour.typepad.com/fourfour), and we're not even talking chunk here, we're talking full on fat. Mmmmm.

The Other Andrew said...

Wow, he's very not-gay? Colour me 'surprised'. Sure? He seems a bit fem to me... which of course is still entirely possible. Fem straight guys are very confusing.

I've noticed myself admiring a some more 'bearish' guys recently. As much as I can admire a classic gym built body, a 'regular guy' body can be nice. Chunk can be good.

Michael said...

Well, so he says anyway. I read an interview with him and he talked charmingly about the confusion based on roles he's played and the fact that he's 'very slight of build'.

Well, I'm not a chubby chaser yet. Oh, who am I kidding? Not choosy right now. If you're attached to a cock and wouldn't be averse to me using it as a pacifier tonight, ring me.

Number?

PS. bring Chapstick

Michael said...

I'm in the mood for jailhouse style, or spit.

The Other Andrew said...

Dirty. Does it involve Christopher Meloni?

Michael said...

I was thinking Wentworth Miller, but yeah, now it does.
