Funny, Relevant

See it if you want to support NYC's oldest LGBTQ+ theatre company, you like plays with stock characters, you're looking for an entertaining evening

"A laugh-filled evening (and some tears, too)...Finley's direction in this second revival is impeccable...He is the kind of director who lets the audience know it’s okay to laugh, allowing the humor of Wilson’s script to shine through...There is much humor in Wilson’s work, but there is a fine understanding of the gravity of this historic time...Don’t miss the fun and the rage and keep resisting, folks, because love always wins."
