Did you hear that social media is the wave of the future? Fire up ye old Twitter
on your fruit tablet, break out all your spare hashtags and be sure to tag @AmandaBynes and
her various bird-lady wigs, because GayCo Productions’ all-new revue #GodHatesHashtags is
trending off the social media charts.
Through scenes and song, #GodHatesHashtags explores gay identity after hate, lesbian bar
culture after the closing of T’s, the sanctity of Cracker Barrel after being desecrated by
homosexuals, the inanity of social media sex profiles, the corporatization of gay rights groups,
and the twerk-tinged wisdom of disregarded LGBTQ youth.
Ultimately, what will happen to the gay community after #GayMarriage and #Equality are no
longer trending topics? Probably lots of twerking.
#GodHatesHashtags previews Saturday, Aug. 31 at 7:30pm at Donny’s Skybox (1616 N. Wells)
and opens Saturday Sept. 7 at 7:30pm. It runs Saturdays through Oct. 19. Tickets are $16 ($13
for students and $10 for Second City Training Center students) and can be purchased by calling
#GodHatesHashtags stars Kathy Betts, Christopher Lotito, Jamie Newland, Clay Goodpasture,
John Loos, Alexandria Miller, Becca Levine and Robin Trevino. GayCo alumnus and Second
City Writing Program Head Andy Eninger directs, with Michael Goldman and Charlie Worth
providing musical direction and Aimee Davis assistant directing.
