B’More QFest announced that it will kick off its inaugural year with Leslie Jordan, well known for his Emmy-winning role as Beverly Leslie on the hit show “Will & Grace.” Jordan will perform his one-man show “Fruit Fly: Do Gay Men Become Their Mothers?” on June 10-11 at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St. in Baltimore.
Performances begin at 8 p.m. Tickets are $75 for a pre-performance reception and performance on June 10 or $35 for the performance only and $35 for the performance on June 11.
In Fruit Fly, Jordan recounts his mother’s recognition of her son’s flair for the flamboyant at an early age. She knew that he would face challenges in Chattanooga, Tenn., when she saw him sporting a pair of red cowboy boots.
