It's doubtful this question has ever been asked, but Neil Labute answers it in his new play, “The Money Shot,” which opened Monday at the Lucille Lortel Theatre under the auspices of McC. In Labute's spar-com, the fighting between the lesbian Bev (Callie Thorne) and the hetero dude Steve (Fred Weller) begins the moment the curtain goes up and continues for the next 100 minutes.  For anyone familiar with this playwright-director's work, it will come as no surprise that a very good-looking, buff »
