The Temperamentals chronicles the early days of the Gay Rights movement, almost 20 years before Stonewall, told through the love affair between Communist Harry Hay (who later founded the Radical Faeries) and Viennese fashion designer Rudi Gernreich. In the McCarthy era, when homosexuals were openly persecuted, five men came together and formed the Mattachine Society, the first sustained Gay Rights organization in the United States that paved the way for today's Gay Rights movement.

The New York Times called The Temperamentals 'an eminently likable docudrama about gay identity in the age of Eisenhower,' Backstage said 'The Temperamentals is an exceedingly fine play - smart, passionate, focused, and satisfying.' After Elton stated 'playwright Jon Marans has written the brilliantly-titled The Temperamentals, a play that captures all the messy complexity of the founding of a movement,' while the Associated Press calls it 'Fascinating, entertaining and emotionally affecting.'

Tickets: General admission $16 in advance/$20 at the door; student/senior $12 in advance/$16 at the door. www.brownpapertickets.com/event/362590; 1-800-838-3006.

SEATTLE CENTER FESTAL - 'SPIRIT OF WEST AFRICA'
On Saturday, May 11, from noon-8 p.m., at Seattle Center Armory, Seattle Center Festal presents 'Spirit of West Africa,' inviting visitors to explore and experience the cultural roots and contemporary influences of West Africa through live performances, visual arts, hands-on activities, foods, games, and a lively marketplace. The annual festival expands this year to include artists and performers whose expression clearly reflects the influence of West African culture, but who live and work in Seattle and call this city their home, regardless of where they were born. They come from places like Trinidad, Cuba, Jamica, Haiti, Peru, Columbia, Brazil, Guyana and the list could go on.

Under the direction of Senegalese born Thione Diop, 'Festal: Spirit of West Africa' has always focused on music and dance as performed by West African artists, many of them brought to Seattle just for this festival as guest performers. The more expansive view this year considers the fact that Seattle is now home to many artists from these nations as well as the great African Diaspora, that vast region of the Americas created by the trans-Atlantic slave trade, who continue to practice their traditional arts. In addition, many American-born artist consciously work in mediums, especially music, that emphasize and celebrate West African cultural ideas and values.
