The BeeBo Brinker Chronicles  | Open: 09/27/07 Close: 10/20/07
Set in pre-Stonewall Greenwich Village, THE BEEBO BRINKER CHRONICLES celebrates the era when "the love that dares not speak its name" began breaking the old rules. Fueled by booze and furtive sex, the play follows the lives and loves of Laura, Beth and Beebo as they navigate uncharted territories of desire.

Beth and Laura, secret lovers in college, went separate ways after graduation: Beth married and had children, Laura moved to New York. Both pine for each other, but before they can reunite, they find themselves entangled in the web of Beebo Brinker, a butch denizen of the bars with a soft spot for young lesbians fresh off the bus.
