Well-known actor, writer, and all round great guy Allan Morgan will offer a witty and wild demonstration of his culinary skills in Baking and Dishing with Pride.
In this piece drawn from his previous work, For the Young Gay, the Un-Gay and the Jaded Queen in All of Us, this one-person show follows Allan’s path from 1968 forward and chronicles his life as he begins to understand and accept his sexuality and looks at the points of connection between his life and the Gay Pride movement as we grow together.
