Critics hail The Temperamentals as intelligent, political, witty, moving, wise, and most importantly, entertaining. It tells the story of a group of courageous men who joined together to build the Mattachine Society, the first gay rights organization in the United States. The play features the intimate and complex relationship between Harry Hay and young fashion designer Rudy Gernreich, set against the backdrop of 1950’s Hollywood and the McCarthy era.
Thomas Jay Ryan (recently on Broadway “In The Next Room”) portrays Harry Hay. Michael Urie (from TV’s “Ugly Betty”) is Rudi Gernreich. Arnie Burton (an original cast member of Broadway’s “39 Steps”) joins the cast in multiple roles. Rounding out the cast of five multiple talented actors are Matthew Schneck, and Sam Breslin Wright.
Running Time: 2 hours and 15 minutes, including one 15 minute intermission
