RONNIE LARSEN’S ‘MAKING PORN’

MAKING PORN reveals secrets that even a wife may not know. In this refreshed version of “Making Porn”, Ronnie Larsen has put together some really awesome staging. The timing is perfect – the actors are handsome and the fun just never stops.

Prim and proper is not what you could call “Making Porn” – but it does give us a lot of good hi-jinks fun. Just remember – when you’re in front of a camera your hair and clothes must be perfect, on or off.

Set in San Francisco in the early 80’s where young men are look to make a little money (or big money) in the porno industry. Just look at Jack Hawk (Matthew Rush) who is straight and married. He wants to be an actor, but really can’t act his way out of a Cheerio Box. What he can do is flex his massive muscles. Oh, and below the waist? Well, you know what I’m talking about – it hangs low.

The Director (Ronnie Larsen) is kind of tight with the money. Some of the men, who have been around for a time know how to negotiate with him for a better deal. Take the somewhat jaded Porn Star Ray Tanner (Ivan Hardin). He knows how to swing his tool around. So, he gets a little bit better pay. After all, he’s a star.

Then there is the new boy, who is barely of legal age. Or at least looks that way. Ricky (Noah Longton) comes into the movie biz with his bright eyes wide open. Will this lead to stardom? Who knows – but no doubt millions will watch the Video in comfort at home as they exercise their body parts.

The Porn Movie is called “Cops”.  You know -- a Cop arrests you – only because he digs you. It’s the uniform. Whether you are a Plumber or a Cop – a uniform always gets what he wants.

Jamie (Jared Scott) has been in many plays at New Conservatory, A Larsen Show called “All Male Peep Show” and the Off-Broadway hit – “Sleeping with Straight Men” (which he also produced.” Scott is one of the best actors around – and it’s good to have him back.

Sabrina De Mio (Linda) plays the wife of the buffed up wanna be Actor that turns to Porno movies – cause they need the money. Linda, the wife, tries to keep him in the Porno biz. She becomes his agent and demands and gets a huge bunch of money for his dangling talents. She talks about his talents – especially his 15- foot tall tool. Of course, I exaggerate. But, it is enormous.

There is a lot of badass ass-kicking stuff. Even the furniture can’t take the brutality. Hey, this is not Yoga. It’s real hockey player stuff. I think you guys will be pleased with the “Super Size Action.”

It kind of ends with a cuddly touch. Here are some words from a well known song: (not in the play) -- but right for it.) “Tonight the night of love is in your eyes, but will you love me tomorrow?” And that is a tough one to answer. Maybe it should be sung to something a little bit lower.

HERE IS THE NAKED TRUTH. The entire cast IS ripping good. They worked really HARD, and gave award-winning performances. They should be proud of their talents. It’s sexy -- and terrifically twisted, and funny.

THE DIRECTOR RONNIE LARSEN (he plays Arthur (Director) in the show -- is also a famed Playwright.) He’s amazing.

You should really try to see this “Tongue in cheek play.” It’s at 125A Hyde Street (Near Golden Gate) at, the Custom Made Theatre.
