Raunchy, Resonant, Intelligent

See it if you like bio plays and are interested in gay history.

Don't see it if you are prudish. Lots of nudity and projections of pornographic images.

“Any way you look at it, it's quite a story and Kelly does a fine job of placing Steward's life against the rapidly transforming landscape of twentieth-century gay history. Even if you've read Justin Spring's biography of Steward, he remains fascinating; for the uninitiated, particularly young audience members with little or no personal experience of the closet, it should be a real eye-opener. Underneath the Skin is the compelling account of a life lived on its own terms, no matter how the outside world chose to define it.”
