simply gay issues,” Wolf said.
He said he hopes people who
attend the play won’t get sidetracked
with the subject matter of the play,
but will instead understand what
Crowley set out to get across.
“I think that the purpose wasn’t to
shock, it was to be honest,” Wolf said.
“It was to be honest about real peo
ple’s lives.”
He said he thinks Lincoln audi
ences will see that.
“I think the acting will be very
professional and I’m hoping that the
power of the drama itself will allow
people to transcend what they may
think are simple matters,” Wolf said.
He said Crowley’s “Boys in the
Band” was first done in New York in
1968, where it gained a lot of atten
tion. However, there was a revival of
interest in the play in 1996 that has
put Crowley in the spotlight again.
Now Crowley’s work has become
the standard for plays that deal with
gay issues. '
“(‘Boys in the Band’) really
opened the door to gay theater,” Wolf
said. “Now every time a new gay play
opens, there tends to be a recollection
of the history of plays that deal with
openly gay characters, and that histo
ry means they have to look back at
Mart Crowley.”

While Wolf agreed the production
of “For Reasons that Remain
Unclear” is important for its gay sub
ject matter, he hopes people will
come to see it simply because it is a
quality play.
“It’s serious, dramatic, moving
theater, and you don’t see as much of
that in Lincoln as you do in New
York,” Wolf said. '
“For Reasons that Remain
Unclear” opens tonight at the Wagon

Seventh St. The play will run today
through Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and on
Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10, $5
