Bright Colors and Bold Patterns is a riotous new solo play that storms the stage with ferocity and wit, deemed "hilarious" and "uproarious" by The New Yorker, "fantastic" and "pure magic" by Time Out New York, and "side-splitting" and "fresh" from The Huffington Post. It had a tremendous 6 month Off-Broadway run in 2017-2018, being extended numerous times.
 
It’s the night before Josh and Brennan’s picture-perfect Palm Springs wedding, and their old friend Gerry arrives car-cranky and a few beers in, furious that the invitation demands that he “refrain from wearing bright colors or bold patterns.” Gerry stews poolside with his ex and the ex’s twentysomething boyfriend in this hyper-verbal and tragicomic one-man show that asks some essential questions about contemporary gay life: Why do people settle for assimilation instead of liberation? Where’s khaki in the rainbow?
 
The Dallas production will star Paul J. Williams as Gerry.  Paul J.’s story has included six years with a comedy/improv group called LESS MISERABLE, numerous theater roles in both musicals and plays, six years of honing his comedy craft in New York City, countless appearances as a stand-up comic across the country, a cable network comedy special appearance, performances with various professional choral ensembles and a continuing run as a featured entertainer on cruises for RSVP Vacations.  The show is produced by Uptown Players under the direction of Marianne Galloway.
