The Upper West Side is one of my favorite areas in the city to dine and dish in. It has a comfortable and inviting quality to it that works wonders all year-round, especially in the summertime.

In the Closet, a dramedy by Siegmund Fuchs, introduces us to four gay men of varying ages who have entered into a shared limbo, a limbo which takes the form of a metaphorical closet. In this closet there’s enough space for four people to walk around, a table and chairs, two doors, food, and coffee that comes straight from a dresser drawer without requiring a coffee maker. In this safe haven these men find the soothing memories of a grandmother’s back scratches and warm-baked kolaches, the smell of lilac, and the company of each other.

By the end of Act 1 of the new Hartford Stage musical, The Flamingo Kid, I felt a sense of deja vu. Although I had never seen the 1984 movie on which it is based, the story and themes were precisely in sync with another recent stage show adapted from film: A Bronx Tale.
