Jeffrey Presented in 35below: Different Strokes! Performing Arts Collective presents Paul Rudnick’s Jeffrey, a comedy about a man who has sworn off sex despite living in New York, where “sex is not something you can avoid.” Suddenly, just after he’s reconciled himself to celibacy, Jeffrey’s friends introduce him to the man of his dreams, who also happens to be HIV-positive. What follows is an audacious and moving romantic comedy with a difference—one in which the quest for love and really fabulous clothes meet, and where unflagging humor prevails even when tragedy might be just around the corner. Directed by Steph Hickling Beckman.  Jeffrey will be performed April 18 – May 5, 2013 with performances Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 7:30 pm. Note: no performance Thursday, April 25; additional Sunday matinee performance May 5, 2013 at 2:30 pm.  Ticket information will be posted at
