In January, Bedlam Theatre hosted a rather gnarly and sexy rendition of Shakespeare’s “Titus Andronicus,” featuring the hunky Charles Hubbel as a Titus with tight abs, but at loose ends with his family. Jean Salo was terrific counterpart as the vengeful Tamara, while Jesse Corder and Matt Spring alternated the roles of her carnivorous, sexually versatile sons, Chiron and Demetrius, as attracted to one another as they were murderous.
Director Paul von Stoetzel staged a fascinating colorblind production which was a treat, not only because this is a rare work, but because it was fine entertainment for a cold winter’s night.
Note: This winter, Steven LaVigne has been focusing his energy on play writing, and intends to write more on the gay content of plays toward the summer.
