Off-Broadway LGBT Drama to Star Kathleen Turner and Deborah Cox

A transgender-themed drama is currently scheduled for off-Broadway starring two divas who have long been known to be friends of the LGBT community: screen, tv and stage star (two-time Tony nominee) Kathleen Turner and singer/stage star/recording artist/ Grammy nominee Deborah Cox. The world premiere is coming to New World Stages, just west of Worldwide Plaza, it was announced yesterday by the Associated Press.

The play, Would You Still Love Me?, is written by John S. Anastasi and will be directed by Nona Gerard. Previews begin the 26th of this month.

No, Kathleen does not play Caitlin Jenner, though she did guest appearances as Chandler's transgendered dad on tv's Friends, and gender-bending is very much in vogue nowadays. She, in fact will play the mother of  a daughter, in a lesbian relationship, who decides to change her gender. Holy Chaz! We'll see how Kathleen compares to Cher under those circumstances.

I have previously seen Ms. Turner on Broadway in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and High, and she is just astounding on stage. I saw Ms Cox a few years ago, on the pier at Pride when she opened for Cher. She, too, was amazing.

Don't hesitate to reserve, as tickets are currently on sale for previews and it will be a limited run.
