Joe DiPietro in Chicago for his Play F**KING MEN

TONY AWARD winner Joe DiPietro will be in Chicago this weekend for his show  F**KING MEN.

His latest play observes the sex lives of the modern urban gay American male. Conceived as a noir-riff on Arthur Schnitzler’s 19th century play, LA RONDE, the play examines ten men from all walks of life as they negotiate the before and after of lust, love, betrayal and the pursuit of sex and emotional connection. Funny, poignant, sometimes dramatic, always provocative and sexy, the show has been a runaway success in Los Angeles and London. The Los Angeles Times said, “Pungent insight infiltrates F**KING MEN.” The Times (London) called it “genuinely provocative.”  It’s  outrageous comedy of gay sexual manners!

Joe DiPietro is the author of I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE! and ALL SHOOK UP. His most recent musical, MEMPHIS, was nominated for eight Tony awards, won three, and also received the Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical.

Preview performances for this Chicago premiere begin June 18 at the Theatre Building Chicago, 1225 W. Belmont, and Opening Night is scheduled at 8pm on Saturday June 26 during Chicago Pride weekend. Mr. DiPietro and director Tom Mullen will participate in audience talk-back sessions after both the June 18 and June 20 performances.

General admission tickets are $25. Special Reserved seating is available for $30. All general admission tickets ordered before June 25 are $20 using the discount code PRESALE.
