Technically this B+ list singer/songwriter/performer who is openly gay was born in the US.
It isn’t really where he grew up though.
Anyway, he is staging a new production and is living out every one of his sexual fantasies in it. The production features teens of barely legal age who are being cast only if they look much younger than 18.
It is actually in the casting notes that they need to look as young as possible.
All of these one on one auditions where our B+ lister meets with the prospective actors naked is certainly interesting too.
It is a such a casting couch type thing that even the A list director would be impressed.
Even the director hasn’t figured out how to land a project where the whole idea is to have sex with teenagers and get paid for it and have it on camera.
Canadian Opera Company launching new Rufus Wainwright production ‘Hadrian’
TORONTO — The world premiere of a new production by Rufus Wainwright and Daniel MacIvor headlines the Canadian Opera Company’s upcoming season.
“Hadrian,” Wainwright’s second opera, is described as “a poetic meditation on the ways that love overturns worlds both political and personal.”
Wainwright says the opera was inspired by his reading of the novel “Memoirs of Hadrian” by Marguerite Yourcenar about the life of the Roman emperor.
The opera company says Canadian tenor Ben Heppner will be coming out of retirement to make a cameo in the production.
Seven performances of “Hadrian” will be staged at Toronto’s Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts in October. – Source
