Author and storyteller Armistead Maupin returns to the Paramount Room of the Crown & Anchor with a brand new one-man show. In this witty and poignant stage presentation the legendary author of “Tales of the City” turns a keen eye on his own youthful (and stumbling) search for family, love and authenticity. It’s a tale that leads from a repressive boyhood in North Carolina to adventures in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam to a new life and sexual salvation in 1970’s San Francisco. Fierce, bawdy, wise and funny, LOGICAL FAMILY embodies all the qualities that have endeared Maupin to generations of readers.
Books will be available for sale, and Armistead will be signing after the show.
“Some of us grow up feeling like another species entirely – lone gazelles lost amid the buffalo of our closest kin. Sooner or later, though, we have to venture beyond our biological family to find our logical one, the one that makes sense for us. We have to, if we are to live without squandering our lives.”
-- Armistead Maupin
“To quote the inestimable Quentin Crisp (upon introducing a friend), this is Mr. Maupin, he invented San Francisco.” Not just San Francisco either. For millions of fans around the world Armistead Maupin might as well have invented gay culture.”
