"Director Greg Natale and his all-star lineup of actors and designers, have created the most fully realized rendition
of a play I have seen in years."
BUFFALO RISING REVIEW
"All four of the actors are Buffalo favorites for a reason: they’re good. But special kudos go out to Kelli Bocock-Natale who convincingly plays one of the most annoying characters ever penned and she does it with nuance and depth."
-Peter Hall, Buffalo Rising

"This ensemble consists of some of Buffalo’s favorite actors
and each gives a uniquely brilliant performance…
Greg Natale directs this production in such a way that
his work becomes invisible to the naked eye."

Terrence McNally’s award-winning comedy, Lips Together, Teeth Apart opened the season with an award-winning director and cast. The show opened on September 16, 2016 as part of the Curtain Up! 2016 celebration.
A gay community on Fire Island, in the early 1980s, provides an unlikely setting for two straight couples, vacationing at the home of one’s recently deceased brother, having passed away from AIDS. As they celebrate the Fourth of July holiday, questions of their own mortality, faith, achievements and disappointments overlap as they each face an uncertain future.
