In the Sydney Opera House Green Room, an American Opera Singer waits anxiously with his fellow players to find out if he is about to take to the stage to finally play the role of his dreams for the very first time. When pressed by his anxious co-stars to reveal his mysterious past, we discover an extraordinary love story, an epic human rights story and a tale that takes us back to the iconic Continental bath house in New York. We are transported to the infamous gay sauna- come cabaret venue that launched the careers of Bette Midler - the Divine Miss M and Barry Manilow, and played host to some of the greatest entertainers of the time including Stevie Wonder, Cab Calloway and Peter Allen who all reappear to help tell his incredible story.
