A touch of Broadway
Gavin Creel brings it to Prelude
Broadway star Gavin Creel is as well-known for his gay activism as he is for his Tony-nomi-nated performances in Hair and Thoroughly Modern Millie. And he doesn't worry that being out will ruin his career.
"If I never play a heterosexual again, bring it on!'' says Creel, who performs his nightclub act Friday and Saturday nights at Prelude by Barton G. in Miami. He admires a new cadre of gay performers who speak matter-of- factly about their lives, "people like Cheyenne [Jackson] and me, people who are willing to do it, who stand in front of you and make women hot and guys confused."
He officially came out two years ago in The Advocate and wishes he had done it "10 years earlier." "You're not out until you say it in the press," Creel says. "Ricky Martin -- I had a feeling, but until he said ‘I am gay,' it was speculation."
Gavin Creel performs 8:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Prelude by Barton G at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami. Dinner and show $110 for preferred seating, $45 show only. Call 305-357-7900, www.preludebybartong.com or
