Deep Throat The Play Scheduled to Open in New York Next April

Not to be confused with Lovelace The Musical which officially opens in Los Angeles this Saturday, there’s also Deep Throat, the play. A drama of a totally different stripe.

And, as you might expect, it was banned in Boston. Deep Throat the play, which features Ron Jeremy- though not yet officially- caused a clamor among city fathers this week when it was closed before it got to open.

Although a new venue has already been named- the World Theatre in New York, where the movie premiered in 1972. The play’s scheduled for a tentative one month run but could go longer. And the roster of stars besides Jeremy includes Linda Blair and Marilyn Chambers.

“Ron Jeremy who has roots in Broadway was asked to do it and was so excited,” states Robert Interlandi director of marketing for Arrow Productions, www.xxxdeepthroat.com

“And we were talking to Thora Birch.”

Which would be a press agents dream since Birch is not only a recognized mainstream actress but her mother Carol Connors appeared in the original Deep Throat movie and played the nurse.

“We were in talks with Thora to be the new Linda Lovelace,” Interlandi tells me. “We were in negotiations but there’s nothing concrete. It would be nice to have her in there.”

Interlandi mentions that one of the cast from The Sopranos is also in the play and is leaving it up to guessing games as to who.

From the way Interlandi describes it, the play’s told from Harry Reems’ perspective.

“The play’s going to open with him being a real estate agent in Utah and he reflects upon his life- it’s a really cool read,” says Interlandi, noting that Reems had denounced the porn industry from the time he sobered up.

“I tried to talk to him about licensing and he was no way,” says Interlandi.

“But the guy who wrote the play, David Bertalino, contacted him and said I want to do a play about your life. Reems said he used to be an actor and performed on Broadway before porn and that he would love to have a play written about him.”

Which sounds like a change of heart on Reems’ part.

“Reems sees it as a really cool project,” says Interlandi.

The story, according to Interlandi, also includes events when Reems was prosecuted and jailed by the Feds. In one scene actors portraying Johnny Carson, Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson pitch in for Reems’ defense. Jeremy is slated to play the prosecuting attorney.

“And there’s going to be nudity on stage,” Interlandi adds. “And Harry Reems said he would show up for the opening. That’s huge.”
