AROUET PRESENTS THE TEMPERAMENTALS - A CHRONICLE OF GAY HISTORY
On Saturday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, May 19 at 2 p.m. (May 19 performance interpreted for the hearing impaired), and Thursday-Saturday, May 23-25, at 7:30 p.m., at The Ballard Underground (2220 NW Market St.), Arouet and Alfed Zern Hill present the Northwest premier of The Temperamentals by Jon Marans.

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.
