While Atlanta’s own Mr. Atlanta Eagle Chandler Bearden did not win International Mr. Leather 2010 despite his sexy, racy and just plain sweet style, another sexy winner took home the leather sash. And with his win, Tyler McCormick of New Mexico broke all kinds of barriers.
Topher Payne was looking forward to taking a vacation after his recent play “Christina Darling,” but when he learned that auditions for “Loot” were coming up, he knew a vacation could wait. “Loot” opens June 4 at Onstage Atlanta.
Written by gay playwright Joe Orton, “Loot” debuted back in 1965, where it was met with some hostility from those not expecting its satirical tone. The play is a farce about two young men, Hal and Dennis, who are thieves. After robbing a bank next to a funeral parlor, they have to hide the money — and wind up stashing it in the coffin of Hal’s recently deceased mother.
