News: Venus in Waves Productions Presents "Asexuality! The Solo Musical" as Part of the 2024 Queerly Festival

 Venus in Waves Productions will present Asexuality! The Solo Musical, written by Rebecca McGlynn and directed by Heather Dowling (she/her), a Soaring Solo instructor and an award-winning writer and actress. The production will be presented as part of the 2024 Queerly Festival, FRIGID New York’s annual celebration of LGBTQA+ artists, at UNDER St. Marks (94 St Marks Pl, New York, NY 10009).

What does it mean to be a man in the 21st century? How does toxic masculinity affect those of us assigned male at birth? What’s so great about sex, and why won’t people shut up about it for two goddamn seconds and just let me play my video games in peace?!

Written and performed by Rebecca McGlynn (she/they), a transgender queer writer, actor, songwriter, and filmmaker working in film and TV production in Los Angeles, Asexuality! The Solo Musical is an autobiographical musical comedy about McGlynn’s pre-transition life.

The story follows Robert, an asexual man navigating a hypersexual world. Through music and comedy, he explores sex, romance, love and loss… and, eventually, HER true gender identity.

The show has been the proud recipient of the Top of the Fringe, Fringe First, and Encore awards at the 2022 Hollywood Fringe Festival, and longlisted for the BBC Writersroom Popcorn Award at the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It has also been an official selection for Solofest, the Soaring Solo Stars Series, and the FRIGID New York Queerly Festival.

The cast will feature Rebecca McGlynn, Amanda Lehan-Canto (Smosh), Liesl Jackson, and Lee Pollero.

Asexuality! The Solo Musical will have performances on Saturday, June 22nd at 7:30pm and Sunday, June 23 at 9pm. Tickets ($25) are available for advance purchase at The performance will run approximately 80 minutes.
