Documenting the explosion of contemporary gay and lesbian theater, this bibliography provides a single reference for American gay and lesbian plays, playwrights, and companies, containing listings for more than 700 plays whose primary characters or themes are gay or lesbian. In addition to authors, titles, and synopses, the entries include information about acts, characters, settings, and music. Appendices provide data on how the plays can be obtained, a list of theaters that produce works with gay/lesbian themes, names and addresses of playwrights and agents, a list of related references, and a matrix for the quick location of plays that meet certain criteria. Indispensable for repertory companies, producers, directors, actors, and scholars.
