Casa Valentina Clip 4
Casa Valentina by Harvey Fierstein Clip 4
Casa Valentina is a play about straight men who congregate in the Catskills to dress and act like women. “Back in 1962, most men went to the Catskill Mountains to escape the summer heat, but others took the two-hour drive to escape something else entirely: being men,” read press notes about the new work, which is inspired by actual events.
Nestled in the land of dirty dancing and borscht belt comedy sat an inconspicuous bungalow colony that catered to a very special clientele: heterosexual men whose favourite pastime was dressing and acting as women. It was paradise for these men — white-collar professionals with families — to spend their weekends discreetly and safely inhabiting their chosen female alter egos.
