    Michael Urie Gets Temperamental

    The Temperamentals, a new play by Jon Marans (Old Wicked Songs) about the formation of the first gay rights organization in the U.S. pre-Stonewall, opens at the Barrrow Group Studio Theater on Monday, May 4. Directed by Jonathan Silverstein, the production stars Thomas Jay Ryan as Harry Hay and Ugly Betty's Michael Urie as Rudi Gernreich, with Tom Beckett, Matthew Schneck, and Sam Breslin Wright in other roles. Many performances of the limited run are already sold out, but there will be a waiting list at the door for each show. For more information, go to www.smarttix.com. Here are my exclusive photos of the production.
