It's not the first time the feathers of local area bigots have been ruffled because of the mingling of religious and homosexual material on stage. This time around, local Catholics, among others, hosted a prayer vigil outside of Duke Energy Theatre last week to protest performances of playwright Paul Rudnick's The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told. The play shares the Bible's creation story in a flamboyantly gay perspective — and what better local theater group to do so than Queen City Theatre Company. Adam and Eve have been replaced with Adam and Steve, while Cain and Abel take a more feminine turn as Jane and Mabel. Together, these comical characters must learn how to deal with bodily functions, temptations and their creator — all while surviving a flood, slavery in Egypt and life in modern-day New York.
