Daniel Henning's uplifting performance brings out the best in this audiobook exploring the importance and prevalence of gay culture on "The Street." Ethan Mordden's comprehensive research spanning the years 1910-2010 opens wide the closet doors, and Henning revels in the flamboyant anecdotes and colorful quotes that tumble out. Mordden credits early warriors such as 1920s female impersonator Julian Eltinge and Eva LeGalliene's lesbian repertory company with paving the way for shows with gay characters and themes. Henning has a delightful feel for the content, capturing mischievous grins as secretly gay writers manage to slip "insider" jokes into mainstream shows. With entertaining discussions of "out" writers and amusing analyses of both straight and gay productions, this is a wonderful listen! S.J.H.
