Woody A Theater Queen, But No Club Kid

Woody Allen apparently had an aborted boys night out last week. Page Six reports that the legendarily neurotic director went to see his friend Tony Roberts in Xanadu during a notorious gay night. Allen did not, however, go bar-hopping afterward. Can you imagine, New Yorkers, if Woody Allen walked into Phoenix or Barracuda? It would either be sublime or terrifying, we can’t decide. [NY Post]

    I remember the ambidextrous tounge of Woody Allen saying in the 1970’s, “that sex between a man and a woman can be great… providing that you are between the right man and right woman!”

    Isn’t every night at Xanadu a “notorious gay night”?

    Woody Allen also memorably once said, being bisexual doubled your chances of a date on Saturday night.

    It’s curious that he has never made a single film featuring a gay character, in his world, we’re inexistent. And Carol Kane doesn’t count!

    Taylor, I believe in the movie, “Manhattan,” his ex-wife played by Meryl Streep was a lesbian. I haven’t seen the movie in years. But you’re right, there has never been a gay male character in one of his films; although in, “Annie Hall,” he does make fun a a gay couple walking in the park holding eachother: “They’re back from Fire Island. They’re giving it a chance for a minute.” However, when he says about one man, “There’s the winner of the Truman Capote look-alike contest.” the man is actually Truman Capote
