Openly gay actor Luke Macfarlane, best known as gay chef Scotty Wandell on the ABC series Brothers & Sisters, is currently starring in the world premiere of Reverberation, a drama by out playwright Matthew Lopez, at Hartford Stage in Connecticut.
Macfarlane plays Jonathan, a gay man who has withdrawn from society and he has emotional (and physical) relationships with both men and women. The play also stars Aya Cash and Carl Lundstedt.
As Hartford Stage artistic director Darko Tresnjak explains: "It is also rather frank — about love and sexuality; gay, straight, and in between — in our time. At the end of the day, inspiration and faith in our audience won the day. And a competitive streak kicked in: I wanted Hartford Stage to get the credit for premiering this beautiful work."
The play continues through March 15. Watch this clip below:
