It was chilly in SoHo last night but “poolside” at the SOHO playhouse it was sizzling with non stop laughter during the 80 minutes of “Bright Colors And Bold Patters” which was written and performed by Drew Droege and directed by Michael Urie.
This production is presented by Zach Laks in Association with Riki Kane Larimer. Co-producers are Jamie deRoy, Keith Boynton/Mike Lavoie, JimKierstead, Drew Desky/Dane Levens. Tom De Trinis serves as associate producer.
Bright Colors And Bold Patterns – the hit play hailed as “devastatingly funny” by The New York Times – returns Off Broadway for an exclusive eight week limited engagement at SoHo Playhouse (15 Vandam Street, between 6th Avenue and Varick Street in Manhattan), officially opening on Monday, November 20 at 8:00 PM. The production began previews on Sunday, November 12 and runs through Sunday, January 7. Written and performed by Drew Droege (the internet’s “Chloë,” “Drunk History,” “Bob’s Burgers” and “Heathers” on Paramount TV Network in 2018) and directed by Michael Urie (Torch Song, Buyer & Cellar, “Ugly Betty”), the play has come back to New York due to overwhelming demand, following a smash three-week run last year.
Bright Colors And Bold Patterns is a riotous new solo play that storms the stage with ferocity and wit, deemed “fantastic” and “pure magic” by Time Out New York, and “side-splitting” and “fresh” from The Huffington Post when it debuted in New York last year. It was hailed as “raucous, witty and occasionally moving” by The Daily Beast, “a very funny play” by The New York Post, “outrageous and stinging” by Out Magazine and “relentlessly funny” by Buzzfeed.
