They said what? Rita Moreno questions Justin Kirk about 'preparing' for nude scenes on Broadway stage
Ribald exchange happens during Outfest Q&A for documentary on playwright Terrence McNally
Outfest typically arranges Q&A's to follow festival screenings -- an opportunity to hear from key talent involved in the films. Depending on the subject matter of the movies in question, the conversations can range from the serious to the moving to -- in the case of Every Act of Life -- the uproarious.
Actors Rita Moreno and Justin Kirk were among those who took part in the Q&A for the documentary about playwright Terrence McNally. Moreno worked with McNally on The Ritz in the 1970s; Kirk worked with him more recently on Love! Valour! Compassion!
The latter play focused on eight gay men who reunite over several summers on the east coast. The production called at one point for almost the entire cast to strip naked. An audience member asked Kirk about the audition process for the show, which prompted an exchange between the actor and Moreno. Watch it here.
