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
