Broadway's Barry Pearl (Bye Bye Birdie, Oliver!, The Producers) stars in this world-premiere drama as a straight psychiatrist, who's determined to help a conflicted gay colleague in early '70s Philadelphia, where being labeled a homosexual could end a career. Delving into the origins of the controversial practice known as gay conversion therapy, Doctor Anonymous is inspired by the true story of Dr. John E. Fryer, who made LGBT history when he came out of the closet -- though still wearing a mask -- at an American Psychiatric Association convention in 1972. This world-premiere drama celebrating love and liberation was written by New York playwright-psychiatrist Guy Fredrick Glass. Learn More

“Irresistible… an American Bridget Jones!” — The New York Times
Cynthia Silver, the unlikely heroine of the Fox TV and WE Network’s hit series Bridezillas, blows the lid off reality television in her hilarious one woman show Bridezilla Strikes Back! Co-written with Kenny Finkle, Bridezilla Strikes Back! chronicles Silver’s naïve foray into the world of not-so-real TV, as well as her struggles with the concept of marriage and the rigors of navigating the mercenary New York bridal industry.
Having agreed in the summer of 2002 to allow a British documentary crew to film the preparations for her lavish New York City wedding, Silver was shocked to discover the film had been sold to and WE and turned into a reality TV show tellingly called Bridezillas. Suddenly an unwitting traveler in a demoralizing landscape, Silver found herself mocked on TV and pilloried in the press and chat rooms, her wedding ridiculed in re-runs and countless promos.
