Cheyenne Jackson plays a porn star in The Performers, a new romantic comedy which is now in previews at Broadway’s Longacre Theater.
It is the night of the Adult Film Awards, and Lee (Daniel Breaker), a tabloid journalist, has come to Las Vegas to interview his high school friend Mandrew (Jackson), a hot new star. Lee, who’s accompanied by his fiancée Sara (Alicia Silverstone), first sees Mandrew as an exotic creature; but soon enough begins to question his own, more conservative lifestyle. Meanwhile, Sara is having doubts too, and she enlists Mandrew’s wife Peeps (Ari Graynor) – also a performer – to compare notes on intimacy and the fear of commitment. Awards, sequins, and Barry Manilow converge as everyone tries to navigate the ins, outs, ups and downs of relationships. Thank goodness Chuck Wood (Henry Winkler), the hardest-working man in the business, is on hand to remind everyone that size matters… but love matters more.
The Performers opens on November 14th. (Via Boy Culture)
