Jacket Summary: On December 2, 1979, Martin Sherman's controversial and deeply moving play abuot the persecution of homosexuals in Germany opened to extraordinary acclaim on Broadway. Moving from a Berlin flat in 1934 to Hitler's camps, the play stirred audiences as shock piled upon shock, revealing a little discussed horror of European history.

Review: I watched the movie years ago, and from what I can recall, it's pretty faithful to the original play. I liked the movie and I liked this script as well, though I definitely have mixed feelings about it. It's very much a "tragic dead queers" story.
