At a Glance

In the 20th century, three of Broadway’s most famous songwriters were gay men who led very different private lives and met very different fates. How did these public figures survive when homosexuality was criminal? Musical theater historian John Kenrick pulls back the curtain on these three remarkable colleagues with fascinating anecdotes and exciting performance videos of some of their tactfully (and not so tactfully) gay themed songs.
