ACT­ING OUT ‘Cabaret’, ‘Cow­boy’ bring the iconic and erotic to At­lanta

GA Voice - - Outspoken -

Two ma­jor theater of­fer­ings are on tap next week in At­lanta, one fea­tur­ing a well-known gay ac­tor and the other a prom­i­nent in­ter­na­tional gay cou­ple. Broad­way in At­lanta of­fers up a na­tional tour of the mu­si­cal “Cabaret” with “Queer as Folk” alum Randy Har­ri­son while 7 Stages brings the erotic “Cow­boy” to town cour­tesy of dancers Niv She­in­field and Oren Laor, who came to town for their ac­claimed dance piece “Two Rooms” sev­eral years ago. In their new work, an all-male coun­try line dance turns into some­thing more evoca­tive. We caught up with Har­ri­son, She­in­field and Laor to chat up their new shows.

Hello, Randy. How did the “Cabaret” tour come about for you?

I au­di­tioned for it. I knew the pro­duc­tion re­ally well. I had seen it a bunch of times and I knew about the re­vival so I went for it.

Any hes­i­ta­tion of do­ing a na­tional tour?
