Sayre Gorham Miller 2

Nicholas Gorham invites his two favorite writers to join him in a public end of summer thoughts and feelings fest that will surely titillate the neuroses of the most steadfast wasp. Join us for a reading of some work, new and old!

NICHOLAS GORHAM
Nicholas Gorham is a graduate of The American Academy of Dramatic Arts and has been performing in New York since the early part of the Century. After crossing the Canadian border, Nicholas had an awakening that theatre could exist without limitations and began to create his own work in the downtown queer performance scene. Credits include The Goddess Ianna in “Justin Bond Re:Galli Blonde (A Sissy Fix)”; Big Art Group’s “Fleshtone” and Nicholas Gorham: “One Drop Passing” at La MaMa, E.T.C., In 2011, Nicholas founded The Spectrum, a queer performance, rehearsal and art space in Brooklyn.

JUSTIN SAYRE
Best known as the creator and writer of the hit downtown comedy/variety show The Meeting*(2012 Bistro Award, 2011 MAC Nominee) and its annual benefit “Night of A Thousand Judys” – was described by Michael Musto in The Village Voice as “Oscar Wilde meets Whoopi Goldberg.” In a recent story for Edge New York, Steve Weinstein said “Comedian, raconteur, performing artist, gay rights activist and sexual outlaw: I’m not sure Justin Sayre is classifiable. The veteran performer is on his way to becoming a Downtown Manhattan institution along the lines of Charles Ludlum or Charles Busch.” An evening of his short plays, “Justin Sayre Is Alive and Well… Writing” – called one of the “Top 10 Events on the New York Stage” by the New York Daily News – sold out two shows at Ars Nova last April. A second reading of his play, The Click of The Lock, starring Randy Harrison, Christian Coulson and Sean Dugan took place at Labyrinth’s Bank Street Theater this February
