ANN ARBOR – In “Take Me out,” sports and sexual politics collide when a star baseball player “outs” himself in a press conference. With both humor and hard-hitting questions about masculinity, sexuality, and race, Richard Greenberg’s Tony Award-winning play hits a home run and is sure to delight baseball fans and theater-goers alike.
The play, which features nudity and strong language, opens at the Performance Network in Ann Arbor in late July. On Sunday, July 31 The Gay Visibility Campaign will sponsor a special performance, so if you want to see this play with an audience that is sure to appreciate it as you do, be sure to get tickets to this special performance July 31.
The Gay Visibility Campaign is part of the Performance Network’s Capital Campaign to raise money for improvements to the theater facility. Started by former Performance Network president, Keith Orr, the Gay Visibility Campaign provides a tangible reminder to other theater patrons that the LGBT community is an important asset to them.
For tickets to the July 31 performance, contact The Performance Network box office at 734-663-0681. Part of the proceeds that evening will help support the capital campaign. Refreshments at a special afterglow reception will be provided by the aut Bar.
