Photo Flash: Tartaglia, Bergen, et al. in THE TEMPERAMENTALS at The Blank Theatre Company!

In 1950s Los Angeles, tired of police harassment, back alley bars and living in  fear, a few brave souls set out to change their world and claim their civil rights.  In a time when nothing could be spoken in the open, notorious communist Harry Hay and cultural icon Rudi Gernreich fell in love while building a movement.  This is their story. "Temperamental" was code for "homosexual," part of a secret  survival language created by gay men in the pre-Stonewall United States. Featuring (in alphabetical order) Erich Bergen, Dennis Christopher,  Patrick Scott Lewis, Mark Shunock and John Tartaglia.
