About this show

Directed by Sharon Rosen, Play It Cool is a five person musical centered around Mary's Hideaway, a fictional jazz club, in 1953. Inspired by the period's film noir, this jazz musical examines laws governing gay and lesbian clubs of the time; when women weren't allowed to bar tend and men couldn't dance with other men; when every glance had a double meaning, every word was an innuendo and everything had to be done to strict code. Set against a sexy Hollywood backdrop, Play It Cool looks at the people of the time who had the guts to break the rules...along with the ones who were only to happy to play along with them.
