"Decades Apart" gets new life

Last fall, Ryan Repertory produced “Decades Apart,” a one-man show that looks at the gay experience from three very different men in three different decades.

In case you missed it, the show is getting a new life at the Nuyorican Poets Café on Mondays this month, until May 24.

The multi-media piece was conceived by Rick Pulos (our outer-borough man), who plays the three men – a ’70s San Franciscan, a ’80s gay Republican in New York City, and a club kid in ’90s LA.

“I was thinking about all the different people younger than me, and how they are changing in terms of the things that are changing around them,” said Pulos, who, at 35, is in the middle of the spectrum of the characters he created and explores this experience through. “How have they navigated the political atmosphere and climate that existed in their time? Has anything changed?”

To set the time, the piece also includes iconic video footage from the three decades, from Nancy Reagan to Monica Lewinsky.

From the Nuyorican, the piece will travel to Highways Performance Space in Los Angeles next year.

“People are interested in the piece,” said director Barbara Parisi. “The subject matter is very current and important to the history of this movement.”

“Decades Apart: Reflections of Three Gay Men” at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe [236 E. Third St. between avenues A and B in Manhattan, (212) 780-9386], Mondays at 7:30 pm through May 24. Tickets $15, $10 students and seniors. For info, visit
