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

Written by Arthur Schnitzler
Twisting through episodes of sexual encounters, this provocative and psychological kaleidoscope promises fulfillment just around the next corner. Schnitzler’s take on the fantasies and realities of love callously scrutinizes the sexual morals and class ideology of his day. This original multi-media presentation, of the infamous ‘once banned’ play, serves to modernize its significance and presents yet another voyeuristic element to a tale which truly resonates as clearly today as it did in 1897.
