Center Stage

As we keep our Pride extra week rolling, how about enjoying the trailer for “Stage Mother.” The movie seems like a but if a camp throwback – like, when’s the last time you remember a movie revolving around acceptance of a dead gay son? (Answer: “Heathers”?) But it could still be quite fun. Think as if an Americanized “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” and “Kinky Boots” had a baby but brought it up with more Baptist church choir overtones and Lucy Liu as an added bonus. (Though, gotta admit, blonde Lucy isn’t my favorite.) As a NorCal girl, I get a kick out of seeing the Castro. And, well, who doesn’t like a good diva? I only wish Adrian Grenier wasn’t in the movie, because I only see him as the true villain of “The Devil Wears Prada.” Bad boyfriends, man. They’re continually the worst.
