Host: Amy Matheny with Kelli Simpkins

Amy and Kelli are relaxing on the queercouch and recounting some theatre experiences from New York. They saw Next to Normal and Vibrator and give us their reviews. Amy talks about the vibe she got in New York and all of their star and some gay star sightings. They also discuss the Adam Lambert controversy and Christmas pressures we all face and will face very soon!
