Ben Rimalower brings his popular one man show Patti Issues to LA for one night only November 25 at 8pm. When Rimalower was eight years old, his father came out of the closet and embarked on a drug-fueled tear that left his family in tatters. Amid the chaos of his young life, Ben found comfort - like so many gay boys before him and after - in musical theater, and specifically in the transportive voice of Broadway star Patti LuPone. After serving as the director of numerous Off-Broadway plays, concerts and all-star benefits, Patti Issues marks Rimalower’s debut as a playwright and performer. With a mix of comic irreverence, stark candor and show-biz bravado, Patti Issues poignantly explores the challenges facing LGBT parents and children while shining unique light on gay men’s time-old obsessions with divas. Directed by Aaron Mark. Rockwell Table & Stage, 1714 N. Vermont, Los Angeles 90027 (doors open at 6:30 pm). Click Here for tickets ($20). There is also a two-drink minimum, per person.
