Evocative, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if you want to see a very personal story of gay-male-bonding in pre-to-post-AIDS NYC, told with fervor, sensitivity & fun (incl original music)

Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with gay themes, as this is the story of 6 unabashedly gay men & their connection via the Continental Bathhouse.

Confessional, Well-intentioned, But unfortunately not well-executed

See it if you're interested in hearing a personal account of growing up gay at the dawn of the AIDs crisis in NYC and don't mind low production values

Don't see it if you want quality music or staging -- the production values are poor and the performances are wanting.
