The Boys Upstairs

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through July 2 2016
Price: $25-$30
Three gay college friends reunite as adult roommates in this fizzy sex romp by Jason Mitchell. In a Hell's Kitchen walk-up, a nebbish blogger, a sweetheart monogamist, and Jack McFarland-meets-Foghorn Leghorn drop double entendres and fawn over the presumptively straight neighbor. David Zak's direction for Pride Films & Plays takes a goofy stab at urban romantic farce—no pun goes untouched, and all three abuse one-liners and look at adulthood through the lens of Logo TV. Some jokes are written with more self-awareness than others—no one onstage seems to notice how creepy a prolonged "grope the passed-out guy" gag is—but it's an excuse for Luke Meierdiercks to do quintuple duty and shine as a handful of different one-night stands. —Dan Jakes
