A full 17 years after its original release, 54 – Mark Christopher’s sexy salacious salute to that infamous temple of hedonism, New York’s 70s nightclub Studio 54 – has been gorgeously reconstructed to reflect the director’s original vision. With 36 added minutes of original material, the story of Shane O’Shea’s (Ryan Phillippe) journey from fresh-faced Jersey boy to “Shane 54” is now darker, more tenacious, and most importantly, queerer. A significant plot line involving Shane’s bisexuality along with his ménage a trois with his two co-stars will finally see the light of day after years on the cutting room floor.
Be sure to get your tickets early, as seating is limited.
