Chance: a Musical Play about Love, Risk and Getting it Right
A gay psychologist (Richard Hefner) and a handsome young rent boy (Ken Lear) stumble down a unique path to healing when guided by a mysterious Hollywood glamor queen (played by a gender illusionist Randy Roberts).
55 year old Gregory has spent his adult life denying the loss he experienced as a young man during the AIDS crisis. After a near-death experience, The Lady appears to him. Is she an inner guide from the Jungian collective unconscious? Or a musical hallucination resulting from a small stroke? Gregory is pushed out of his solitary reality, by his unlikely muse, and down the rabbit hole of mid-life crisis where he enters into a turbulent, dangerous relationship with a young male escort named "Chance."
Directed by legendary theater icon Robert Kalfin (founder of the multiple Tony Award-winning Chelsea Theatre Center), this unique theatrical cocktail will be one part fun, one part pathos, and one part magic.
Musical direction by local jazz artist Tammy L. Hall lends a touch of sophistication and class to the musical storytelling.
Randy Roberts (The Lady) is an internationally known female impersonator and star of Randy Roberts-LIVE! (also featured at The Alcove). Ken Lear (Chance) hails from New York where he was recently featured in Naked Boys Singing! Richard Hefner (Gregory) is the writer and star of YouTube viral hit "Boys and Girls."
Premium tickets include reserved stage-side cabaret seating, wine, and other goodies. The Alcove Theater is a hidden gem near Union Square - comfortable, classy and welcoming.
Hear what the critics have to say about the show!
"...And there's singing; man oh man, is there singing. "
"...And God does it feel good to watch a new play that manages to feel personal without being self-indulgent and presents something cerebral without seeming self-important. What do they call that trick again? Oh yeah: good writing."
"..."Chance" is the odd show that's actually worth opening your wallet for. Check it out; you'll be glad."
