Fruit Fly starring Leslie Jordan
The Emmy Award-winning star of Will & Grace and self-proclaimed “Gayest Man I Know,” Leslie Jordan returns to the Cabaret at Camp Bar with another hysterically charming show.
“Do gay men become their mothers?” That’s the question that Mr. Jordan travels back in time to find out. Through show-and-tell, Leslie relates childhood memories and shenanigans from his past, including the day a teenage Leslie sits down with his caring but clueless mother to inform her that he has decided to forgo college to become a female impersonator. Flash-forward thirty-some years later to an Alaskan cruise with 2,000 gay men on which a 53-year old Mr. Jordan witnesses his aging mother’s astounding metamorphosis. Leslie’s natural storytelling skills abound, and his innate gift for gab keeps every audience in stitches.
With hundreds of television shows, films, and commercials to his credit, Leslie Jordan is a familiar face on the entertainment scene. He was most recently seen in the Oscar- and Screen Actors Guild-Award winning film The Help. In 2006, he won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his portrayal of “Beverley Leslie” on Will and Grace. He has also appeared on Privileged, Ugly Betty, Boston Legal, and Reba. In addition to his supporting role The Help, audiences may recognize Jordan from his creation of “Brother Boy” in the cinematic cult classic Sordid Lives.
