Sassy Gay Friend rescues Desdemona in Shakespeare’s “Othello”! But The Second City writers couldn’t pass up referring to Rossini’s opera, “Otello”! Frankly, I hope The Second City runs Sassy Gay Friend all the way through Shakespeare and then sends him on to rescue all the doomed heroes and heroines of tragic opera. Although it wouldn’t kill the writers at least to read the plays and see performances of the operas first. Also, who believes gay men have to ask a woman any questions regarding, um, size?
Is it irreverent of me to ask on Easter weekend how things would have gone if Jesus had had a Sassy Gay Apostle?
