Unleashing your lascivious side in the john isn’t really all that new, but it can make for good headlines—just ask Larry Craig or George Michael. But even if you don’t have a wide stance, you can still enjoy a theatrical version of bathroom love in Ladies & Gents, an award-winning Irish play that has its American premiere at the Bethesda Fountain public toilets in Central Park. The play—about a wife-turned-prostitute whose pimp is her hubby—will be shown to viewers in both the women’s and men’s restrooms at the same time in two 20-minute increments. Just be sure to wash your hands afterwards.
