Former notorious The Village Voice journalist Michael Musto has a new Gay gig! Musto will make a one-night-only appearance in off-Broadway’s My Big Gay Italian Wedding alongside Odyssey Magazine columnist and nightlife personality Frankie C. The duo will officiate the wedding of Anthony Pinnunziato and Andrew Polinski in the zany comedy on January 11, 2014 at St. Luke's Theatre.
Known primarily from his Village Voice column “La Dolce Musto,” the New York personality is a recurring guest on Theater Talk on PBS and has appeared on shows including Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Musto appeared in drag in Cyndi Lauper’s “Hey Now (Girls Just Want to Have Fun)” and as a reporter in Garbo Talks.
In addition to his Odyssey column, Frankie C is also a music producer. He has photographed magazine covers for Get Out magazine.
Based loosely on the real-life family of writer and star Anthony J. Wilkinson, My Big Gay Italian Wedding tells the story of Anthony Pinnunziato (Wilkinson), a gay Italian-American from a big, loud family who wants to marry his boyfriend Andrew (Brandon Goins) in a traditional wedding ceremony. Wedding plays in repertory with the show’s sequel, My Big Gay Italian Funeral—both productions are directed by Sonia Blangiardo.
In addition to Wilkinson and Goins, My Big Gay Italian Wedding stars Hugh Hysell, Donna Castellano, Marissa Perry, Debra Toscano, Liz Gerecitano, Meagan Robar, Erik Ransom, Chad Kessler, Brandon Goins, Jody Lyn Flynn, Marie Fontaine, Jonathan Wiener, Joe Scanio, Nick Varrichio, Drew Little and Paul Moon.
