Doric Wilson's "Street Theater"

I can think of no better tribute to the late Doric Wilson than last night's special benefit performance of his play, Street Theater.  In what has become an annual tradition, this one-night-only performance of Wilson's play about the Stonewall Uprising benefits the theatre company he founded, TOSOS, and the LGBT Community Center.

Ably directed by TOSOS Artistic Director, Mark Finley, Street Theater was smart, moving and insanely funny.  Featuring a cast of some of the best TOSOS performers (and stars of the Off-Off Broadway scene), the show was a delight to watch.

The audience featured a variety of well-known downtown actors, playwrights, activists, and friends of Wilson.

The outstanding cast featured Christopher Borg, J. Stephen Brantley, Rebecca Nyahay, Eilis Cahill, Jason Pintar, Chris Anderson, Travis C. Artz, Jeremy Lawrence, Michael Lynch, Tim Abrams, Ben Strothmann, Chad Austin, Russell Jordan, and Desmond Dutcher.

Congratulations to everyone involved in this wonderful performance.
