August is looking very gay in Philadelphia with the fourth annual GayFest! – a festival of LGBT theater presented by Quince Productions. This year’s festival, August 5-23 at various theaters in Philadelphia, is bigger than ever: you can check out three special events, four mainstage plays, and five one-night stands (of the theatrical variety, that is!).

Special Events

GayFest! opens with a two-night performance (August 5-6) of Head Over Heels. New York-based dance company The Bang Group returns to open GayFest! after their triumphant appearance at GayFest! 2012 with “Misters and Sisters.” Their new show, in typically hilarious Bang Group fashion, presents an amalgam of influences from gay culture and street dance to MGM musicals.

Week 2 sees a special one-night only benefit for GayFest! and Equality PA: Standing On Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays a series of short plays by famous playwrights on the subject of same-sex marriage.

Week 3’s special event is the international hit show Confessions of a Mormon Boy Steven Fales’ one-man, which has wowed audiences from off-Broadway to London, Dublin, and Edinburgh. Before The Book of Mormon there was a Mormon Boy!
