This masterly transposition of the gaiety of Schnitzler's Vienna into the
tragic-comic gay life of New York shows us the foibles of our universal search
beyond the thrill of encounter, towards the vision of pure love.
So many-faceted that everyone will laugh a little, and identify a little.
And there's sure to be controversy among those who insist on an entirely uncritical picture of the gay community.
And yet not one of the characters is without deep human sympathies; by an author who has dare to write, without romanticizing, nor criticizing, nor hiding much, of the many levels of gay life, as he has lived it and observed it.
