            him tie his tie.

                                MIKE		
                      Did you see HX Magazine?

                                KEVIN		
                      No.

                                MIKE		
                      Marco Rossi's in town.

                                KEVIN		
                      Really? 
                          (pause) 
                      What's he doing?

                                MIKE		
                      Shakespeare in the Park! Please Kevin,
                      what do you think he's doing? He's
                      stripping.

                                KEVIN		
                      Where?

                                MIKE		
                      At that All-Male Peep Show on 47th
                      Street.

                                KEVIN		
                      Well, you sure know where they are, don't
                      you?

                                MIKE		
                      What does that mean?

                                KEVIN		
                      You know what that means.

                                MIKE		
                      Kevin, just cause I know where they are,
                      doesn't mean I still go.

                                KEVIN		
                      Oh, you still go.

                                MIKE		
                      I'm sorry, I just thought it would be
                      interesting to see Marco Rossi.

                                KEVIN		
                      Why would that be interesting?

                                MIKE		
                      He's a big deal.

                                KEVIN		
                      He's just a porn star.

                                MIKE		
                      He's not just a porn star.

                                KEVIN		
                      You just want any excuse to go hang out
                      in those places. 

                                MIKE		
                      I don't "hang out" in those places
                      anymore, Kevin. 

                                KEVIN		
                      But you want to.

                                MIKE		
                      No, I...I really, I can't talk about
                      this, I'm gonna be late. 

            Mike exits, Kevin stays, thinks for a moment.

      2     SCENE: THE PEEP SHOW-NYC-EARLY MORNING

            Lights up we are at the All-Male Peep Show. Ameer comes on
            stage and gets a wheeling mop/bucket and mops out all of the
            booths. When he is mopping booth 1, Robert enters.

                                ROBERT	
                      Hey, Ameer. Hey, how you doing?

                                AMEER		
                      I'm fine. 

                                ROBERT	
                      Hey, is Greg in yet? 

                                AMEER		
                      No, not yet.

                                ROBERT	
                      Okay really quick...I got this new
                      outfit, but I'm not sure which one I like
                      better. 

            Pulls out two g-strings, holds one up to himself.

                                ROBERT (cont'd)
                      This one, or... 

            Holds another up.

                                ROBERT (cont'd)
                      ...this one? 

                                AMEER		
                      Why you need new outfit?

                                ROBERT	
                      I wanna look good for Marco Rossi.

                                GREG		
                      Hey guys.

                                ROBERT	
                      Oh, Greg, really quick. Which one you
                      like better this one or this one?	

                                GREG		
                      Are you're dressing up for Marco Rossi? 

                                ROBERT	
                      Aren't you?

                                GREG		
                      Was I supposed to?

                                ROBERT	
                      You don't think its exciting?

                                GREG		
                          (Sarcastic)  
                      Oh, yes, it's really exciting. 

            Robert, slightly annoyed, rolls his eyes and leaves.

                                AMEER		
                      So, how is your mother?

                                GREG		
                      She's not good. 

                                AMEER		
                      I am sorry.

                                GREG		
                      She doesn't want to take her medicine.
                      She doesn't want anybody helping her.

                                AMEER		
                      Well, what can you do? 

            Greg leaves, Brian enters.   

                                BRIAN		
                      Ameer, I'm here.

                                AMEER		
                      Ugh!!!  Brian, where were you, yesterday?

                                BRIAN		
                      I was sick. 

                                AMEER		
                      Really?

                                BRIAN		
                      Yes. I really was, I'm sorry, next time
                      I'll call I promise.

                                AMEER		
                      You say that everytime.

                                BRIAN		
                      I'm sorry, next time I really will call.

                                AMEER		
                      You better.

                                BRIAN		
                      I will. 

                                AMEER		
                      No you won't.

            Switches on lights and music begins. 

            Music Cue-100% Pure Love

      3     SCENE: 100% PURE LOVE

            The minute the "OPEN" sign goes on music starts, Music Cue
            and the Peep Show comes to life and the lights begin to
            flash. Very early in the music the men, Robert, Brian, and
            Greg, step through the doors dressed in very layered
            clothing, like for the dead of winter in Russia. During the
            song, the men change from these dead off the cold, bitter
            streets costumes into the sexily clad, made-up men of the
            Peep Show. Music lowers.

                                ROBERT	
                      So, where were you yesterday?

                                BRIAN		
                      Why does everybody wanna know where I
                      was.

                                GREG		
                      Because we worry about you. 

                                BRIAN		
                      You don't need to worry about me.

                                GREG		
                      Well we do.

                                BRIAN		
                      Well you don't need to.

                                GREG		
                      So, where were you?

                                BRIAN		
                      I was sick.

                                ROBERT   	
                      You weren't dancing at the Gaiety?

                                BRIAN		
                      I don't dance there anymore, I told you
                      that.

                                GREG 		
                      You danced there last week.

                                BRIAN		
                      Well I danced there last week, but not
                      anymore.

                                ROBERT	
                      Why, what happened?

                                BRIAN		
                      They told me not to come back.

                                ROBERT	
                      Why?

                                BRIAN		
                      I have no idea.

                                GREG		
                      They just said,"Don't come back"?

                                BRIAN		
                      Yep.

                                GREG		
                      Why?

                                BRIAN		
                      I guess they don't like me.

                                GREG		
                      Did you piss 'em off?

                                BRIAN		
                      I don't wanna talk about it. 
                          (To Robert) )
                      And what the hell are you wearing? You
                      look like a God Damn Billy Doll. 

            After they finish getting dressed, they exit to their booths
            and pop into their windows. As they exit, Ameer moves his
            stand to the downstage position directly facing the house
            center aisle. The mood should remain desolate, while the men
            wait for customers. When everyone is in place, the first
            customer of the day enters.

      4     SCENE: FIRST CUSTOMERS OF THE DAY

            All of the guys will enter straight up to Ameer's stand.
            During this scene, Ameer in no way attempts to be friendly to
            the customers. He rarely says one word to them, treating them
            with disdain.

                                JANET		
                      Hey, is Marco Rossi really performing all
                      week?

                                AMEER		
                      Everyday.

                                JANET		
                      Wow.

                                AMEER		
                      How many tokens you want?

                                JANET		
                      Oh, gimme five dollars worth please? 

            Ameer hands him coins.

                                JANET (cont'd)
                      And he's gonna show his dick and
                      everything?

                                AMEER		
                      Everything. 

            He exits and goes in to a booth.

                                BRADLEY	
                      Can I get four dollars worth please? 

                                AMEER		
                      Do you have anything smaller?

                                BRADLEY	
                      No, sorry.

                                AMEER		
                      Hold on.

             Ameer exits.

                                MIKE		
                      I can't believe I let you drag me here.

                                BRADLEY	
                      Oh, fuck Kevin, if it was up to him you'd
                      never leave the house. You know you love
                      it.

                                MIKE		
                      You never feel bad afterwards?

                                BRADLEY	
                      Never? 

                                MIKE		
                      Never!

                                BRADLEY	
                      Mike, grow up. It's not like you're
                      dating these guys. It's just a show.
                      They're just performers. It's like a
                      Broadway show without the boring parts. 

                                MIKE		
                      I've never been jerked off at a Broadway
                      show.

                                BRADLEY	
                      You didn't see Footloose? 

            Ameer comes back. He gives Bradley change and Bradley exits.

                                MIKE		
                      Can I get 3 please? 

            Ameer hands over the tokens and Mike goes in to a booth.

                                AMEER

            One by one, the booths turns around and the men begin to
            dance to the music. At one point in the song, the booths
            should start rotating leaving Booth 2 only "open." At end of
            scene, booths turn back around.				

                                BRIAN		
                      Did you cum, yet?

                                MIKE		
                      Not yet.

                                BRIAN		
                      You're not into me?

                                MIKE		
                      No, I'm too excited I can't cum.

                                BRIAN		
                      There's no rush. Take your time.

                                MIKE		
                      Show me your ass.

                                BRIAN		
                      You like my hole? 

                                MIKE		
                      Do you like to get your ass eaten?

                                BRIAN		
                      I love that.

                                MIKE		
                      Oh my god!

                                BRIAN		
                      Did you cum yet?

                                MIKE		
                      Not yet.

                                BRIAN		
                      What else do you get into?

                                MIKE		
                      Have you ever been tied up?

                                BRIAN		
                      A couple of times.

                                MIKE		
                      Did you like it?

                                BRIAN		
                      Oh yeah, I loved it.

                                MIKE		
                      What happened?

                                BRIAN		
                      I got tied up.

                                MIKE		
                      How?

                                BRIAN		
                      How what?

                                MIKE		
                      How did you get tied up?

                                BRIAN		
                      Oh, With rubber. Did you cum yet?

                                MIKE		
                      Stop asking me that.

                                BRIAN		
                      What?

                                MIKE		
                      "Did you cum yet ... did you cum yet." 
                      Goddamn, I can't cum if you keep asking
                      me that. 

                                BRIAN		
                      Well, you don't need to get testy with
                      me.

                                MIKE		
                      Well, you're making me self conscious.

                                BRIAN		
                      I just wanna make sure you're turned on
                      	

                                MIKE		
                      Well, I'm not turned on now.

                                BRIAN		
                      Well, that's not my fault.

                                MIKE		
                      It is your fault. 

                                BRIAN		
                      Sorry, Jesus Christ.

                                MIKE		
                      Just turn around. Don't talk. Just turn
                      around. 

            Booth one and booth three spin back around, so we see all
            three boys dance at once as song and. One by one booths all
            turn around. One by one all customers exit and the boys
            reappear in their windows.

      6     SCENE: STEVEN ASKS FOR AN INTERVIEW

            Steven enters at end of previous song. Ameer is reading his
            paper. Dialogue begins immediately after last beat of music.

                                STEVEN	
                      Excuse me, um, I was wondering if I could
                      talk to the manager.

                                AMEER		
                      I am the manager.

                                STEVEN	
                      I saw the sign out front. So I was like
                      wondering if I could do an interview or
                      something. Who do I talk to?

                                AMEER  	
                      You wanna dance?

                                STEVEN	
                      Well, I wanna find out about it.

                                AMEER		
                      Have you ever done it before?

                                STEVEN	
                      No.

                                AMEER		
                      Have you ever been inside a place like
                      this before?

                                STEVEN	
                      No. Not really.

                                AMEER		
                      So why you wanna work here?

                                STEVEN	
                      What do you mean?

                                AMEER		
                      I mean, you never been here, but you
                      wanna work here, why?

                                STEVEN	
                      I have a friend who does it.

                                AMEER		
                      He works here?

                                STEVEN	
                      No, but he works in a place like this.

                                AMEER		
                      And he told you about it?

                                STEVEN	
                      A little bit.

                                AMEER		
                      What'd he say?

                                STEVEN	
                      He said you can make really good money.

                                AMEER		
                      What's wrong, you don't want to work at
                      MacDonald's? Ha, ha, ha.

                                STEVEN	
                      No, I actually don't want to work at
                      MacDonald's.

                                AMEER		
                      Okay, you come back at 3:00 and we'll see
                      what we can do.

                                STEVEN	
                      So just come back at 3:00?

                                AMEER		
                      Yeah.

                                STEVEN	
                      And you'll be here?

                                AMEER		
                      I'm always here.

                                STEVEN	
                      Okay I'll see you at 3:00.

                                AMEER		
                      What's your name?

                                STEVEN	
                      Steven.

                                AMEER		
                      Okay, Steven, I'll see you at 3:00.

                                STEVEN

                                STEVEN	
                      Ameer?

                                AMEER		
                      Yes, you got it, Ameer. 

            Steven exits one way, Ameer exits the other.

      7     SCENE: BACKSTAGE WITH THE MEN

            The men are still in their booth windows. They hang out for a
            long time in silence. 

                                BRIAN		
                      What time is it?

                                GREG		
                      One o'clock. 

            Long pause. Mike & Kevin enter and get ready for upcoming

                                BRIAN		
                      Is it one o'clock, exactly.

                                GREG		
                      It's one o'clock, exactly.

                                KEVIN		
                      Mike, where were you just now?

                                MIKE		
                      It's one o'clock I was having lunch.

                                KEVIN		
                      Really?

                                MIKE		
                      Yes. I really was, I'm sorry, next time
                      I'll call I promise.

                                KEVIN		
                      Your assistant said you were in a
                      meeting.

                                MIKE		
                      I was at lunch.

                                KEVIN		
                      So you lied to your assistant?

                                MIKE		
                      No.

                                KEVIN		
                      What did you tell him?

                                MIKE		
                      I told him I was going to lunch.

                                KEVIN		
                      You didn't say, "If Kevin calls, tells
                      him I'm in a meeting."

                                MIKE		
                      Of course not.

                                KEVIN		
                      Why would he say you were in a meeting?

                                MIKE		
                      Because he's an idiot? I don't know why.

                                KEVIN		
                      Just admit it. You didn't go to lunch,
                      you didn't have a meeting. Just admit it,
                      you were sleazing around some God Damn
                      dirty bookstore.

                                MIKE		
                          (In a quiet, hushed voice)
                      For the last time, Kevin. I don't go to
                      those places anymore, I told you that.

                                KEVIN	            
                      I know what you told me.

                                MIKE		
                      Kevin, I was not at a dirty bookstore. I
                      was having lunch and if you don't want to
                      believe me, you don't have to.

                                KEVIN		
                      I'll tell you what I believe, Mike. I
                      believe I was getting your dry cleaning
                      ready, which I believe you asked me to
                      do. And I believe I was emptying out your
                      pockets. And I believe I found a gold
                      token. And I believe there were two
                      people fucking on the back. And I believe
                      it's from your Peep Show on 47th Street.
                      Am I wrong? Am I? Are you there?

                      Goddamn, I feel like it's four o'clock,
                      already. 
                          (Long pause)
                      I'll be right back.

                      She's a mess.

                                GREG		
                      You gotta feel sorry for him

                                GREG		
                      You don't feel sorry for him

                                ROBERT	
                      He doesn't think he has a problem.

                                GREG		
                      Well they never do.

                      What's he doing.

                                GREG		
                      What do you think he's doing?

                                AMEER

            Gino enters.

                                GINO		
                      Excuse me, um, I'm looking for someone
                      named Ameer.

                                GREG

                      somebody want's to talk you.

                          (Entering from middle booth)
                      Yes, hello, what can I do for you?

                                GINO		
                      Are you Ameer? 

                                AMEER		
                      Yes.		

                                GINO		
                      I'm Gino. We spoke on the phone, I'm with
                      Marco Rossi. 

                                AMEER		
                      Yes, yes. Gino, how was your plane trip?

                                GINO

            Brian appears in window. Greg and Robert just look at him
            disapproving.

                                BRIAN		
                      Who was that? 

                                GREG		
                      Donald Trump.   He's coming to fire you.

     10     SCENE: AMEER AND GINO

            Ameer and Gino enter.

                                AMEER		
                      Everybody is so excited. The phone has
                      finally been ringing again.  We use to
                      have Live-Girl-Peep-Show but 
                      nobody show up, so now we do All-Male
                      Peep Show and people come, but they say
                      bring porn stars, bring porn stars, so we
                      get Ryan Idol but night before, he falls
                      out the window, so people say get Jeff
                      Stryker, very reliable Jeff Stryker, no
                      jump out of windows, no problems, nice
                      penis, perfect!

                                GINO		
                      Yeah-yeah, that's great, so listen, he's
                      out in the car right now.

                                AMEER		
                      Right now?

                                GINO		
                      Yeah, and I wanna bring him in the back
                      door if that's okay?

                                AMEER		
                      Yes, it is right over there.

                                GINO		
                      great, but listen, you have to do me a
                      favor.

                                AMEER		
                      Whatever you want.

                                GINO		
                      Just don't look at him.

                                AMEER		
                      Why?

                                GINO		
                      He's very shy. He doesn't like people
                      looking at him. So, I'm gonna bring him
                      through right now but please, just don't
                      look at him. Just keep doing whatever
                      you're doing. Act natural. Don't act
                      funny or anything.

                                AMEER		
                      I'm fine. No problem.

                                GINO		
                      So, where's his dressing room?

            He points off-stage.

                                AMEER		
                      Around the corner I put a star on the
                      door.

                                GINO		
                      Thats nice, he'll like that.

                                AMEER		
                      You know cause he's star.

                                GINO		
                      Okay, so you just do what you do and I'll
                      walk him through.

            Ameer goes to tell boys Marco Rossi is coming.

                                AMEER		
                      He's here, he's here.

                                BRIAN          
                      Who?

                                AMEER		
                      Marco Rossi.

                                BRIAN		
                      Oh, big deal.

                                AMEER		
                      Brian, you behave. So, listen , he's a
                      little shy, I am very sorry but you have
                      to go inside your booths while he walks
                      by and wait and then come back out, okay.
                      For me please. We want him to be
                      comfortable, right?

                                GREG		
                      This is crazy.

                                ROBERT	
                      It's exciting.

                                BRIAN		
                      Whatever. 

            Gino re-enters, stops, looks around, says...
