Heath Saunders & Natalie Walker
An Ideal Husband | The Good Wife
August 31, 2018
An Ideal Husband.
The Good Wife.
From their first meeting at a gay porn studio on 40th Street in September 2015, it was fate. They bonded over a love for D’Aulaire’s Book of Greek Myths and erotic thriller The Perfect Guy (19% on RottenTomatoes) and have been inseparable ever since. Last fall they made their dream of playing opposite each other a reality as Jack and Sally in The Nightmare Before Christmas: The Concert here at 54, but this taste did nothing to satiate their craving for a true Lunts lifestyle. And so: this August, Heath Saunders (The Great Comet, Newton’s Cradle, Jesus Christ Superstar Live on NBC) and Natalie Walker (Puffs, Search Party, mostly Twitter let’s be honest) welcome you into their home* for the wedding reception they never had because they are not “technically” or “legally” or “heterosexually” bound. He’ll do some of his music, she’ll do some of her bits, and together they’ll perform classic songs they’ve always wanted to sing with and to each other.
It will be The Sonny and Cher Show if both Sonny and Cher were Cher, or if Cher was Cher and Sonny was a horse. It will be high-brow and low-brow and always perfectly-arched-brow. You will not leave in the same position on the Kinsey scale. Black tie encouraged. Jumpsuits expected.
Music Direction by Dan Garmon.
