“Hi, Are You Single?” @ Bridge Street Theatre This Weekend [Berkshire on Stage]
Ryan has a higher sex drive than you. He also has cerebral palsy. Following a pair of standing-room-only performances at the Public Theatre’s recent Under the Radar Festival and overflow crowds and standing ovations in two separate engagements at Dixon Place in NYC, Ryan Haddad’s frank and funny Hi, Are You Single? comes to Catskill’s Bridge Street Theatre for two performances only on Saturday & Sunday (February 25 & 26). The show has adult themes and is recommended for audience members 16 and older.
Society generally assumes that people with disabilities possess no sexual drive or desire. Ryan shatters that as he attempts to navigate the gay dating pool, searching for love with equal parts humor and hurt, and finding plenty of discrimination and intolerance of difference within an already marginalized community. He hits the clubs and bars ready for glamour and excitement, but soon realizes that his cerebral palsy makes him an outsider. The men he meets there force him to confront his insecurities and examine his own judgmental behavior. But hey, not everything is so serious! Grab a margarita and say hi to Ryan on Grindr. Give him a kiss if you’d like. There’s no need to be shy and bring an attractive friend.
