Don't Have An Inadvertent Orgasm Onstage!
Or even an advertent one.
Writer-performer Gerry Visco tells me she was in the Love Masters art performance play about tantric massage at Theater For the New City, but it was canceled by the theater owner, Crystal Field.
The reason? The stage manager was disturbed that the actor, Michael Russnak, inadvertently climaxed onstage while getting all tantrically delicious.
According to the theater management, it's illegal to touch yourself onstage, which is a shame because that kind of thing always makes for great avant-garde viewing.
Oh, well. Crystal Field once starred in a play of mine called Hollywood Hell at the very same theater.
It was so good that only the audience orgasmed.
