The Connecticut Gay Men’s Chorus: Babes In Boyland (12+13)


  • Theatre at the Co-Op 177 College Street NEW HAVEN CT (map)

Don’t for a moment confuse the Christmas tale of an eleven year old girl named Lisa who ventures off to Toyland and tries to stop an ill-fated wedding in the 1903 Victor Herbert operetta or the 1986 television movie “Babes in Toyland” with the Connecticut Gay Men’s Chorus’s current offering “Babes in Boyland!”  While both are holiday celebrations, they are worlds apart.

The chorus, now in its thirtieth season of providing unique and clever productions, that can be incredibly moving like last spring’s emotionally sensitive “I Am Harvey Milk,” will be up to its new and old tricks this Christmas go-round.  Their twenty-four voice chorus will provide traditional holiday tunes, often with particularly piquant parodies, but this time with a distinct twist.

Think pink peppermint candy canes and red sugar sprinkled star cookies for the debonair gentlemen of the CGMC are ready to welcome to their ranks five dynamic ladies to the stage.—Bonnie's Blog
