Bright Colors And Bold Patterns is a riotous new solo play that storms the stage with ferocity and wit, deemed “hilarious” and “uproarious” by The New Yorker, “fantastic” and “pure magic” by Time Out New York, and “side-splitting” and “fresh” from The Huffington Post. It has also been 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.  The show returned for a triumphant run after stellar reviews and popular demand at SoHo Playhouse, and performed its final live show on April 9th, 2018.

Directed by Michael Urie (Torch Song, Buyer & Cellar, “Ugly Betty”), Bright Colors And Bold Patterns follows Josh and Brennan who 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?

The BroadwayHD production is produced by Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley and directed by David Horn, executive producer of PBS’s Great Performances for WNET. The multi-camera capture delivers the live performance specifically for a streaming audience, bringing this unique performance to life for viewing to subscribers anytime, anywhere.

 Bright Colors And Bold Patterns features set design by Dara Wishingrad and is produced by Zach Laks in association with Riki Kane Larimer. Tom DeTrinis serves as associate producer.

Bright Colors And Bold Patterns was originally presented at VS Theatre in Los Angeles and directed by Molly Prather. It was remounted at Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles and transferred to the Barrow Street Theatre in 2016.
