ABOUT THIS SHOW
‘‘When Caroline asked me to be a sperm donor, I was speechless. But then I did it. And it changed everything. Jerking off in a cup is a spiritual path. Who knew.’’
Called a “wonderful performer” by The New Yorker, acclaimed writer & performer Mike Albo returns to Dixon Place, bringing his recently published Amazon Kindle Single Spermhood: Diary of a Donor to the stage. Albo gives a naked, heartfelt & hilarious account of the year he spent donating sperm for his friends, a lesbian couple.
Directed by David Schweizer, Albo explores creepy donation clinics, the painful shadow of AIDS and what being a ‘dad’ really means—all while attempting to get aroused by cheesy straight porn.
