Topher Payne’s celebrated ensemble comedy, “Perfect Arrangement,” promises lots of laughs at the Brookfield Theatre for the Arts, Friday, April 26 through Saturday, May 11.
Directed by Terry Sagedy, the show tells a tale set in 1950 when the push was on to root out Communists and others, such as members of the LGBT community, who were seen as a threat to security.
“Two U.S. State Department employees, Bob and Norma, have been tasked with identifying sexual deviants within their ranks. There’s just one problem: Both Bob and Norma are gay and have married each others’ partners as a carefully constructed cover,” the theater says on its website.
“Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the American gay rights movement, madcap laughs give way to provocative moments as two All-American couples are forced to stare down the closet door,” the theater says.
