Theatrree Reviuew: Casa Valentina - Broadway. It's 1962, the civil rights act has not passed yet. Homosexuality and Cross Dressing is still illegal in many states. In the Catskills, a small resort caters to transvestites. The men are not drag queens or female impersonators. They are married heterosexual men with children who feel a need to dress as women on occasion. Very funny and moving with a lot of social and emotional issues; not the least of which is what is one despised group willing to do to be accepted by the larger society. Written by Harvey Fierstein, one of the best new plays of the year. Grade: A.

Life is a gift and the longer we live it, the more we ought to use our experiences as an example to help those around us. It’s never too soon to be an inspiration, especially nowadays. In a world that desperately needs inspiration, never be afraid to step up to the plate. As I’ve gotten older, words of encouragement have helped me cope with the most difficult of circumstances. I don’t know where I would have been without the profound mentors I’ve had in my life, and it’s my goal to have the same influence on today’s LGBT youths. Here are a few of the most inspiring (and humorous) LGBT quotes that continuously help me whenever I need my spirits raised. Hopefully you’ll feel the same! Enjoy. “Never be bullied into silence.” – Harvey Fierstein “When you finally embrace the gift of your sexual orientation it IS the end; the end of shame, fear and oppression. You leave the darkness of the closet and begin a life of honesty, authenticity and freedom.” – Anthony Venn-Brown “Being *** ...

Dear Editor, I was thrilled to see the provocative article, CLOTHES MAKE THE MAN, about Harvey Fierstein's wonderful new play on the front page of Sunday's Arts and Leisure Section. As the costume designer for the show, however, I am quite disappointed not to have received credit or mention for designing the clothes and providing the bustiers, girdles, waist cinchers, hosiery, bust and hip pads, full and half slips, and the high heeled shoes which enable our terrific actors to achieve their transformations. Failure to mention the costume designer in an article like this is a significant oversight. Thank you for your attention. Best, Rita Ryack
