From its earliest days, the Broadway Musical has to a very large degree, been a Queer creation. In this episode David Armstrong shares the fascinating stories of early queer producing and life partners Charles Frohman and Charles Dillingham; the first great gay director Hassard Short; drag superstars Julian Eltinge & Bert Savoy; the “Pansy Craze”; and the delightful, delicious and delovely Cole Porter!

Special thanks to Billie Wildrick and David Sabella for their vocal contributions.
