Perez Reviews: What's It All About?


What's It All About? could not be a more fitting question and title for the new Burt Bacharach show at the New York Theater Workshop.

Not quite a musical. Not really a concert. The production features wonderful arrangements of Bacharach songs by Kyle Riabko, a very talented and magnetic young actor/musician who also stars in the show. And the songs are brilliantly staged by director Steven Hoggett. It's all rather enjoyable but also very disappointing.

There is no plot. No dialogue or story. No takeaway (sorta).

It was rather obvious to us that the one recurring theme of Bacharach's timeless and iconic music is love. There could have been a very powerful story to tell here. Or several!

The show, as it is, also just doesn't make sense in a theater setting. It would work much better at a cabaret space or a concert venue. Let people booze it up, stand and jam out with the awesome musicians.

However, there is a real opportunity here to add a story - or stories - and turn this show into something truly special.

The potential is clearly there!

Sad! Kyle Riabko Leaving 90210, Teddy Getting A New Boyfriend!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsGay Gay Gay90210LGBT


Ugh! And just as it was starting to get good!

Although Teddy, played by Trevor Donovan, is slowly making his way out of the closet on 90210, it looks like he and new love interest Ian, played by Kyle Riabko, won't last, because a newbie has been cast to play the closeted teen's new man!

Freddie Smith will reportedly join the cast as Marco, who is described as "super-athletic and friendly."

As for Ian, sources close to the show reveal that his character is being written out upon Riabko's request so the actor will have a clear schedule for the upcoming pilot season!

So disappointing! We really liked them together!

We hope they write Ian off with the possibility that he can return! Teddy's way too fragile at this point to have his heart broken so quickly!

But who knows? Maybe the new guy will work!

Teddy And Ian Kiss On 90210!!!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayInspiration90210LGBT

Sooo sweet! These two make us swoon!

As we've reported, the new season of 90210 has been expertly handling the character of Teddy, played by Trevor Donavan, as he deals with coming out of the closet and accepting his homosexuality, and on last night's episode, he finally took the huge step of admitting his feelings to confidante Ian, played by Kyle Riabko - with a super romantic kiss!

Check out the lovely little scene (above)!

We've had our misgivings about the series, but we think they've finally found their footing and this storyline, as well as most of the others, are really working!

What do U think?? Do U like the direction that 90210 is taking??

Trevor Donovan Talks About His 90210 Character's Coming Out Storyline!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay Gay90210Trevor DonovanLGBT


The reboot of 90210 may never compare to the glory that was Brenda Walsh and the original series, but we've really been feeling the way the reboot is handling the storyline involving the Teddy character coming to terms and accepting his homosexuality!

According to actor Trevor Donovan, the series will not be shying away from his developing relationship with the character Ian, played by Kyle Riabko, and the two will soon be filming the show's very first gay sex scene!

Donavan explains:

The thing with Teddy, and I think it’s very true to real life, is that he is so confused. So much in denial and not knowing how to deal with these emotions. So he acts out. Teddy will continue to struggle before he comes to the realization of who he is and Ian will be very supportive of that. He knows exactly where I’m coming from, so he’s patient and understanding and as their “relationship” develops, eventually Ian’s the one Teddy confides in. It does take a while though – but I think it takes time in life as well. We're telling a very deep substantial story. Teddy and Ian's “friendship” isn’t even displayed in public. He forgives me for using the F-word and that’s kind of it. Any interaction we have is in private, any conversation we have is in private — so yes, our friendship is on the down low. Teddy’s not ready – and he won't be for a while – to come out. As of right now, without giving too much away, from what we’ve shot, no one else has found out yet. It remains a secret for quite a while, even I don't know exactly where it's going. I haven’t yet, but one [love scene] is coming up – very soon in our shooting schedule. The writers are handling it very delicately. It won’t be gratuitous, which I think is very true to real life as well. Teddy’s not just going to jump in and be all for it right away. He’s going to tip-toe into it. It’s a very sweet storyline. It’s gonna be a PG thing: very subtle, very sweet, very real.

I am so proud to be the one given this storyline — especially once I really had a conversation with the executive producer about where the story was going and the concerns I had. I’m very impressed with how this is being written. It’s exactly how I hoped it would turn out. I’ve been getting Tweets and Facebook messages that run the gamut from heart-warming to inspiring to tear jerking – I really feel like we’re doing something positive here, and it just adds another layer to why I love acting: it lets me help people. I’m given the opportunity not only shed light with my storyline, but celebrities are bringing attention to the issue with The Trevor Project and It Gets Better. I’m glad it’s so publicized. It’s a good opportunity to remind people of what’s going on.


While most hot-button issues on this mess are handled with about as much delicacy as there is age-appropriateness in a Miley Cyrus music video, the writers have clearly taken a lot of effort to realistically portray Teddy's coming out, so we're pretty excited to see how this romance develops!

What do U think?? Do U like Teddy's new storyline??
