"Boy Meets Boy"

 Info and Pics

Written by Bill Solly and David Ward, this l was originally produced at the
Actor's Playhouse in NYC in 1975, and recorded in 1978. It's set in London
and Paris in 1936-1937, amid the controversy of King Edward's abdication
so he could marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson. The show is notable
in that no where in it is mentioned homosexuality; the relationships
are simply taken for granted.

         There were two different cast recordings of "Boy Meets Boy," from the Actor's Playhouse (NYC) in 1978, and from the Out & About Theatre in Minneapolis, in 1980.
