Bishop Gene Robinson talks back at Broadway play NEXT FALL

April 9, 2010
GLAAD is renewing its collaboration with the producers of the Broadway production Next Fall to get people talking about this play that explores evangelical Christianity, family and being gay.  Next Fall was an off-broadway hit last year when GLAAD helped organize faith leader talk back sessions. This year Producer Elton John took Next Fall to Broadway and GLAAD is working with producers again to identify faith leaders for talk backs.  Producers are  excited to announce that Bishop Gene Robinson will be participating in the post-show discussion this Tuesday, April 12. Bishop Robinson is the first openly gay priest to be ordained a bishop in a major Christian denomination. He currently serves as the ninth bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in the Episcopal Church. The New York Times calls Next Fall “The funniest heartbreaker in town.” The New York Daily News says, “For a play that begins with a young man lying in a coma with a head injury after a traffic accident, there certainly no shortabe of laughs.” GLAAD is helping share the producers’ news that there is a special discount for Tuesday night’s performance.
