The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me

Actor David Drake takes his pivotal one-man show (the longest running in Off-Broadway history) to the big screen. Director Tim Kirkman (Dear Jesse) has his work cut out for him, translating Drake's roller coaster monologue about growing up gay to the silver screen. Despite some jittery camerawork and a lot of quick cuts, Drake's one-man show remains resolutely stagebound. Drake is energetic and entertaining, but his topics (ranging from jokey takes on gay gyms to serious takes on past lovers lost to AIDS) seem to have grown a tad quaint since their creation in the late-'80's/early-'90s. Those searching for a cultural history lesson may be enlightened as well as entertained, however. 81 minutes
