Do gay men become their mothers?
That is the question asked in Leslie Jordan’s hilarious and touching new romp, Fruit Fly. Mr. Jordan travels back in time using show-and-tell to take the audience on the ride of a lifetime.
Childhood recollections combine with perilous teenage shenanigans. From the day a teenage Leslie sits down with his caring but clueless mother to inform her that he has decided to forego college to become a female impersonator, all the way to a gay Alaska cruise with 2,000 gay men on which a 53-year old Mr. Jordan witnesses his aging mother’s astounding metamorphosis, Mr. Jordan is in his element.
His storytelling skills abound and will make for an evening of fun and thought-provoking theater.
“The name Leslie Jordan is synonymous with funny, saucy, sassy and simply sensational.” (Broadway World)
“If Leslie Jordan didn’t exist, we’d have to invent him, this irrepressible, garrulous Chattanooga pixie who got through a Southern Baptist childhood and stirrings of Gay Lib and lived triumphantly to tell the tale.” (Variety Magazine)
