Devastatingly Funny Gay Comedy ‘Bright Colors and Bold Patterns’ Returns to NYC
Bright Colors and Bold Patterns, the hit play hailed as “devastatingly funny” by The New York Times, will return Off Broadway in 2017 for an exclusive eight week limited engagement at SoHo Playhouse from November 12 to January 7.
Written and performed by Drew Droege (the internet’s “Chloë,” Drunk History, Bob’s Burgers and Heathers on Paramount TV Network in 2018) and directed by Michael Urie (Torch Song, Buyer & Cellar, Ugly Betty), the play comes back to New York due to overwhelming demand, following a smash three-week run last year.
Bright Colors and Bold Patterns is a riotous solo play that storms the stage with ferocity and wit, deemed “fantastic” and “pure magic” by Time Out New York, and “side-splitting” and “fresh” from The Huffington Post when it debuted in New York last year. It was hailed as “raucous, witty and occasionally moving” by The Daily Beast, “outrageous and stinging” by Out Magazine and “relentlessly funny” by Buzzfeed.
Josh and Brennan are about to get married in Palm Springs on a lovely Saturday afternoon. However, the night before becomes a drunken, drug-fueled riot, because their friend Gerry has arrived, furious that their invitation says “Please refrain from wearing bright colors or bold patterns.” In the struggle for equality, what do we really want? What do we lose? And is there any cocaine left?
Bright Colors and Bold Patterns was originally presented at VS Theatre in Los Angeles and directed by Molly Prather. It was remounted at Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles and transferred to the Barrow Street Theatre in 2016.
Performances begin on November 12 and run until January 7. Tickets start at $59. Margaritas are available at the bar 30 minutes prior to curtain. The performance schedule and more information are available here. For in person tickets, SoHo Playhouse box office opens daily at 5:00 PM.
