Written by Fierstein and directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Joe Mantello, “Casa Valentina” is set in the 1960s in the Catskill Mountains. Back then, most men went there to escape the summer heat, but others took the two-hour drive to escape something else entirely: being men. Nestled in the land of dirty dancing and borscht belt comedy sat an inconspicuous bungalow colony that catered to a very special clientele: heterosexual men whose favorite pastime was dressing and acting as women. It was paradise for these men — white-collar professionals with families — to spend their weekends discreetly and safely inhabiting their chosen female alter egos. This new work offers a glimpse into the lives of a group of unforgettable characters as they search for acceptance and happiness in their very own Garden of Eden.

This event is part of our Inside Look series of conversations and backstage videos that take you behind the curtain of the season’s most anticipated Broadway shows.
