What Is the Story of Play It Cool?
As this new musical begins, Mary, the lesbian owner of an underground gay nightclub in early 1950s Hollywood, is preparing for an opening in which her sexy girlfriend, Lena, will be the featured singer. A mysterious movie producer enters the club with a fresh-faced young man just off the bus from South Carolina. Meanwhile, a sympathetic police officer drops by to pick up the protection money Mary pays him each week. The five characters proceed to share their stories and perform songs with titles like “In My Drag” and “Jazz Is a Special Taste.”
