Four-time Moth storytelling champion Jamie Brickhouse returns to the Queerly Festival presented by FRIGID New York with a Gay Pride double feature at 7 PM on Thursday, June 20 at The Kraine. For the first time he performs a darkly comic “Family Suite” of his two critically-acclaimed, award-winning solo shows in one evening. Dangerous When Wet: Booze, Sex, and My Mother directed by David Drake is a sodomite’s showdown between the bottle and his Texas tornado of a mother Mama Jean based on Brickhouse’s critically-acclaimed memoir.
