ONCE AGAIN MY cherry has been popped! Recently I attended the Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus Big Gay Sing at the historic Lincoln Theater in the King-Lincoln District. I must admit that I did not know what to expect. All I knew: gay men singing, Nina West hosting and my friend Steven Frost was having his clothes ripped off of him. That list was enough to get me in the door!
Once seated, I looked over the program and notice a plethora of gay anthems new and old; I was barely able to sit still in my seat as I could hear each song replay in my head. The program included: We are Family, Summer Nights, Living on a Prayer, It’s Raining Men, Love Shack, Bohemian Rhapsody, Last Dance, We are Family and many more.
Nina West, dressed to the nines (as usual), graced the stage to announce that the show was going to be different; this show was CGMC’s first ever sing-along. For those who love Glee and karaoke, it was heaven. It was a lively show with many surprises, including a brief appearance by WBNS-10 TV’s chief meteorologist Chris Bradley during It’s Raining Men. It was evident throughout the show that members and the crew put a lot of time and talent into this show.
Next season is the CGMC’s 25th Anniversary year, and they are preparing a year full of electrifying entertainment. I highly suggest that you go online to get a ticket to one of the upcoming shows or purchase the season tickets.
