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

GO! Innocent Flesh is poignant, truthful, painful, funny, heartbreaking, and a must see. The writing is beautifully poetic, even when dealing with an intense subject matter so often misrepresented. The acting is nearly spot on with a very special nod to the young actress by the name of Jameelah Nuriddin. She beautifully manages to show a tremendous emotional range, sometimes laughing hysterically and sobbing uncontrollably ALL AT THE SAME TIME. Absolutely incredible. Keep your eye on that one. The entire cast was fabulous. I briefly met writer/directer Kenyetta Lethridge after the show and, having been so moved by the show, could barely speak. All I could do was thank her for telling the truth and tell her "I get it." This show has a long future ahead of it.
