Love! Valor! Compassion! and a Perfect Ganesh
Beautifully written, moving, and very funny, "Love! Valour! Compassion!" gathers together eight gay men at the upstate New York summer house of a celebrated dancer-choreographer who fears he is losing his creativity...and possibly his lover. Infidelity, flirtations, soul-searching, AIDS, truth-telling, and skinny-dipping mix monumental questions about life and death with a wacky dress rehearsal for "Swan Lake" performed in drag. The result is a cross between a gay "Big Chill" and Chekhov's "The Cherry Orchard." To read it is to join in a dance of life.
