Scenes from my show, Go Figure.  I was joined by special guests, Tai Babilonia and Dorothy Hamill during the run in at the NoHo Arts Center in Los Angeles. Directed and Co-Written by Joshua Ravetch.

 

“When my parents found out they sent to something called, Reparative Therapy…”

When meeting my birth-mother for the first time, she looked up at me and said, “You’re my son?”

“People always thought that Tai and I were a couple.  We weren’t…Mostly because I happen to be gay…”

Audience participation! They learn the “Shoot The Duck” skating move during the show.

Oscar-winning composers, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, wrote the score for the 1957 Edition of the ICE CAPADES. It was one of their first assignments together.  One of the songs they wrote that year was called “Old Man Winter.” They created a new version of the song for Go Figure for its opening in Los Angeles.  Here they are after the performance when the new arrangement of OLD MAN WINTER debuted! Pictured with Tai Babilonia and myself.

“Go Figure is a specific kind of theatrical evening that falls under the unique  heading Live Autobiography. The primary reason these plays can be so powerful is that there’s an intangible  thrill when a personality you have come to know most of your life steps out onstage to tell their story. The distance suddenly melts!” –  JOSHUA RAVETCH, Director.
