“Sex Scenes” is the title of a sexy, raunchy theater event (and then audiobook) that Polly and I created. It’s an episodic, satirical extravaganza about today’s moviemaking scene, and it features zillions of storylines and dozens of talented, funny and hot Fringe-style performers. It’s like an R-rated HBO series, only for your ears.
“Sex Scenes” began as occasional evenings at small off-off-Broadway venues: clubs, restaurants, bars. As it caught on and as audiences grew, we became a regular feature at Robin Hirsch’s legendary Cornelia Street Café, where “The Vagina Monologues” also got its start.
Eventually Polly and I toured selections of “Sex Scenes” to numerous other cities, including Austin, Louisville, San Francisco, Pittsburgh and Iowa City. Finally, once we’d managed to round off all our krazy storylines, we turned “Sex Scenes” into a rowdy audiobook, featuring fab contributions from many of the performers who’d worked with us for years, and fab audio-production work by Dan Cioffi and Casey Zanowic.
The gifted young critic Ron Salvatore wrote an insightful appreciation of the audiobook. You can read it here.
At the moment we’re no longer offering the audiobook of “Sex Scenes” for sale. But if you’re curious about it, feel free to contact me.
In the meantime, please enjoy some visuals from the multi-year, superfun adventure that was “Sex Scenes.”
