GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM

GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM

Culturadar Find Culturadar Find

Tony winner Harvey Fierstein (Torch Song Trilogy, Hairspray) takes the stage in a ravishing world premiere by one of the most influential playwrights of our time, Tony nominee Martin Sherman (Bent, The Boy From Oz).
 

Fierstein plays Beau, a pianist expat living in London, who meets Rufus, an eccentric young lawyer, at the dawn of the internet dating revolution. After a life spent recovering from the disappointment and hurt of loving men in a world that refused to allow it, Beau is determined to keep his expectations low with Rufus. But Rufus comes from a new generation of gay men who believe happiness is as much their right as anyone else’s, and what Beau assumed would be just another fling grows into one of the most surprising and defining relationships of his life.
 

A remarkably moving, brilliantly funny love story, GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM reflects the triumphs and heartbreaks of the entire length of the gay rights movement, celebrating and mourning the ghosts of the men and women who led the way for equality, marriage and the right to dream. Tony nominee Sean Mathias (Waiting for Godot/No Man’s Land, Indiscretions) directs.
