HURRICANE DAMAGE, opening on August 3 after previews on August 1 and 2, concerns two long-time partners, veterans of the 1970’s gay scene in New York, living on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Dennis and Oscar are visited by an old friend of those days, a photographer named Norman who has remained single and brings back bittersweet memories of their glory days in Manhattan. The couple will be played by company member Charles A. Berglund as Dennis and Danne W. Taylor as Oscar. Company member Tom Chiola will play Norman. Jesse Montoya will play Ford – the couple’s young live-in handyman. The banter among the four – particularly the razor-sharp wit of the 67-year-old Oscar – provides a good dose of humor along with the pathos of the characters’ loss of their past lives and acceptance of the inevitability of change.
