Photo Flash: First Look at SpeakEasy Stage Company's CASA VALENTINA
SpeakEasy Stage Company presents Harvey Fierstein's CASA VALENTINA, directed by Scott Edmiston in its New England premiere, running now through November 21, 2015. Opening night is set for tomorrow, October 27, 2015. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
Based on actual events, CASA VALENTINA takes place in 1962 at a Catskills resort where a group of heterosexual men secretly gather to dress and behave like women. Away from their families, in their beehives and brassieres, these men enjoy a carefree camaraderie of cocktails and McGuire Sisters. But when challenged to publicly reveal their female alter-egos in the pursuit of political acceptance, "the sorority" must decide whether freedom is worth the risk of ruin.
Written by Harvey Fierstein (KINKY BOOTS, HAIRSPRAY), CASA VALENTINA is a provocative, hilarious, and touching new play about gender identity, self-acceptance, and the struggle to find the right pumps.
