After opening as a roaring success hit in Chicago, Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man has announced the production will extend its run at Chicago's Greenhouse Theater Center, 2257 N. Lincoln Avenue, due to popular demand. Rightfully snagging a portfolio of glowing reviews, including being dubbed "a good laugh and a fun night out!" by Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune, Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man has earned its spot as a mainstay in Chicago's theater community and will play open-ended. Formerly having become Off-Broadway's Longest-Running Comedy in New York and launching a national tour before making its Las Vegas debut, this interactive romantic comedy 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.
"We've been blown away by the response we've had for Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man in the Chicagoland area," said Matt Murphy, writer and producer. "Its amazing to see audiences flock to our show and have a laugh with friends and loved ones. Our entire team has had a blast on stage in Chicago, and we're thrilled to extend our time in this great city."
Starring Chicago's Roy Samra as Dan, Emma Jo Boyden as Robyn, and Bradley Allen Meyer as Stefan, 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 of Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man. With the help of a hunky stage assistant named Stefan, Dan aims to turn this meet the authors event upside down with a highly theatrical, audience interactive sex tip seminar.
Hailed by Around the Town Chicago as 'The Perfect Date-Night Show!', Sex Tips has recently been showcased on television in three different reality series whose stars performed in the show, including Kendra On Top, Real Housewives of New York, and Shahs of Sunset. The popularity of this production is no surprise given its source material is the international best-selling book of the same title, which has been published in over 50 different countries and translated into 17 different languages.
Written by Matt Murphy, Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man is produced by Murphy and Shawn Nightingale. The production features Scenic Design by Luke Cantarella,
