In a contemporary society that often insists you can only be one or the other — Ben likes beer, sports, Emily — and Chris. A provocative, intricate and compelling comic drama, Straight takes us on an enthralling exploration of sexuality and identity in a "post-equality" America. Funny, sad, sexy and surprising, this complex love story featuring three actors in a tour-de-force performance takes aim at the moral neurosis of a generation that prides itself on the pretense of acceptance. 

Please note that Straight explores mature themes, contains adult language, partial nudity, sexual content and simulated violence. Straight may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 18.


Written by Scott Elmegreen & Drew Fornarola. Directed by Sean Elias✝︎. Stage Management provided by River Hansen✝︎.

critical acclaim / reviews

"A MUST SEE! It’s not very often that I leave a theater emotionally raw. Straight is a charged, powerful piece that showcases why labels still matter, even in 2016.” - Out Magazine

"Hamilton isn’t the only theatrical revolution going on in New York. Another smaller revolution unfolds…during…Straight. A revolution of expectations. One's own. One's friends'. And society's." - The Huffington Post

“NYT Critics Pick! A smart, bracing production brimming with clever wisecracks [and] some thought-provoking observations on sexual identity." - The New York Times
