The Temperamentals…starring Michael Urie from Ugly Betty

Critics hail

The Temperamentals

as intelligent, political, witty, moving, wise, and most importantly, entertaining. 

It tells the story of a group of courageous men who joined together to build the Mattachine Society, the first gay rights organization in the United States.  The play features the intimate and complex relationship between Harry Hay and young fashion designer Rudy Gernreich, set against the backdrop of 1950’s Hollywood and the McCarthy era.

The Temperamentals succeeds… the cast is, to a man, excellent” – New York Times

Michael  Urie  is an actor, television producer and director, best known for his portrayal of Marc St. James on the ABC dramedy series Ugly Betty. He joins  The Tempermentals, as Rudy, in New York City this month!

“Temperamental” was code for “homosexual” in the early 1950’s, part of a created language of secret words that gay men used to communicate. The Temperamentals tells the story of two men – the communist Harry Hay and the Viennese refugee and designer Rudi Gernreich – as they fall in love while building the first gay rights organization in the pre-Stonewall United States.
