The Temperamentals

By Jon Marans
Directed by Kasi Campbell
August 29th, 2012 - September 16th, 2012

Studio Theatre

"Temperamental" was code for "homosexual" in the early 1950's, part of a created language of secret words that gay men used to communicate. Winner of a Drama Desk Award in 2012, "The Temperamentals" tells the story of two men - the communist Harry Hay and Viennese refugee and designer Rudi Gernreich - as they fall in love while building the first gay rights organization in the pre-Stonewall United States. "With a style and sense of humor, it mixes politics with... comedy and unexpected bursts of emotional candor," wrote David Cote in Time Out New York.
