Family is as family does. Diversionary Theatre presents Marc Acito’s “Birds Of A Feather,” a delightful “LGPT” comedy about family, through March 3. James Vásquez directs.
The P here stands for penguin, and Acito’s 2011 play is based on two real bird stories that captivated New Yorkers around the turn of this century.
In 1998 at the Central Park Zoo, two male Chinstrap penguins – Silo and Roy – were observed attempting to hatch a rock as if it were an egg. Zookeepers gave them an egg from a penguin pair named Porkey and Betty that could not hatch it. The chick, a girl, was named Tango.
