The controversy over what was originally a Tarleton State student’s production of the Terrence McNally play, Corpus Christi, has, ahem, come back to life.
John Jordan Otte’s directing effort was shut down by university officials because of the outcry over the play, which features a character named Joshua — a variant of Jesus — who travels with 12 male disciples and eventually marries two of them. But then, earlier this week. Fort Worth’s Rose Marine Theatre stepped in and offered its stage — with the date of the show to be determined.
According to Theater Jones, that offer has now been rescinded by the Rose Marine board. But Q Live! — an offshoot of Q Cinema, Ft. Worth’s Gay and Lesbian Film Festival — has announced that it will stage the show, somewhere, somehow.
