Tony’s Gay Agenda


For the ride of your life, go to Q Lagoon Day clad in red (for obvious reasons). Just don’t let the following hooligans coax you into going down the Lazy River with them: Michael, Gene, Dennis, Colt, Jesse, David, Jeremy, Beau, Matt, Steve and Donna. Oh sure, you’ll come off wet but also feeling a little violated.

For a great concert experience, go to the Women’s Redrock Music Festival clad in plaid (for obvious reasons). Just don’t let the following hooligans coax you into their tent with an offering of a Natty Light tall boy: Chelle, Mer, Brenda, and Matt. Oh sure, you’ll crawl out a little buzzed but also feeling a little violated.

For a great weekend of awesome artwork, go to the Park City Arts Festival clad in only body paint. As hooligans just stay in the beer gardens so the Parkites don’t feel a little violated.

From an 80s band that broke stereotypes to Michael’s foremost choice to violate on the Lazy River and from an instant sensation Australian boy band (I hope 5 seconds isn’t their holdout time on the Lazy River) to a sexy rock group that could easily coax me to ride them on a Lazy-Boy — the Utah concert stages are red hot this month.

Presented by The Neil Simon Festival, the Egyptian Theatre is home to two works being staged in repertory by one of the most accomplished and beloved playwrights. “Brighton Beach Memoirs” is a portrait of Simon’s life as a teen in 1937 Brooklyn. It’s a bittersweet story of a struggling, overcrowded Jewish household. “London Suite” is a compilation of four short stories that take place in a deluxe London hotel. There’s kidnapping, shoe shopping, Kevin Costner being a whiny betch and a bisexual man’s heartwarming plea.

Utah Repertory Theater stages the musical phenom “Cabaret” — strange that a musical about a hat could be phenomenal … wait, cabaret is a type of hat, right?? Ack! I can’t keep my mind off of riding the Lazy River with Donna.
