CP: Unforgettable. I think it’s because he’s so low-key in his impersonation of the star and author of “My Passion for Design.”

 

RN: There goes my question regarding any over-the-top “Don’t Rain on My Parade” references.

 

CP: Seriously, could New York theater get any gayer? Between the above-mentioned, and Alan Cumming in “Macbeth,” and the recently closed but Tony-nominated Colm Toibin play (“Testament of Mary”), what else is new, I suppose.

 

RN: You — along with probably every heterosexual male in America — clearly have not been watching the car crash that is “Smash,” NBC’s ode to the Broadway musical. It has replaced the phrase “gayer than a tree full of parrots” with “gayer than an episode of ‘Smash’ ” as the saying du jour. The series finale airs Sunday.

 

CP: Time to fire up both TVs at once, then. “Behind the Candelabra,” HBO’s can’t-look-away, Michael Douglas-as-Liberace biopic, also airs Sunday night.

 

RN: Total must-see TV, baby.
