I read this script after watching the movie -- they're similar, but reading it actually makes me impressed how well it was adapted from the stage into film. I only wish I could have seen Harvey Fierstein in it on stage. It's a phenomenal work. Some stuff I've read about it has suggested that it's too conservative/assimilationist. Maybe I'm just defensive, but I don't think that's quite the case.

Stephen I wandered into a production of this. There were half price tickets at TKTS when I was in town) and it was wonderful. Seeing it live when I knew almost nothing about it made the play somewhat miraculous.
