In this episode of BroadwayRadio’s “#BroadwayAMA,” host Kaitlin Milligan talks with Drew Droege, the writer and star of the Off-Broadway hit “Bright Colors and Bold Patterns.”
In the show, Josh and Brennan are about to get married in Palm Springs on a lovely Saturday afternoon. However, the night before becomes a drunken, drug-fueled riot, because their friend Gerry has arrived, furious that their invitation says “Please refrain from wearing bright colors or bold patterns.” In the struggle for equality, what do we really want? What do we lose?
And is there any cocaine left?
