Broadway it's not just for gays anymore

Jun 13, 2011



The 2011 Tonys began last night with a musical invitation to the non-stereotypical Broadway audience:

 

"If you feel like someone that this world excludes, it's no longer only for dudes who like dudes. Attention every breeder, you're invited to the theatre."


"It's not just for gays, the gays and the jews. And cousins in from out of town you have to amuse. And the sad, embittered malcontents who write the reviews. And also foreign tourists and the beats of senior citizens and well-to-do suburbanites and liberal intellectuals. Oh, that group is only really Jews and homosexuals, I've lost my train of thought, oh yes, it's not just for gays anymooooore."


Though this tongue-in-cheek number may have actually offended the very audience it was inviting, "It's not just for gays anymore" was a highlight of the 2011 Tonys.
