Patti Issues returns to LA on Thurs., May 15 for two performances at 7:30 pm and 9:00 pm at Cavern Club Theater at Casita Del Campo. When Ben 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 voice of Broadway star Patti LuPone. 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. Starring Ben Rimalower, directed by Aaron Mark at The Cavern Club Theater, 1920 Hyperion Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027. Tickets: www.PattiIssues.com.
