Playbill's Top Gay Plays

If you've been near midtown the past few days, you probably noticed that the Empire State Building is lit up like a rainbow and the LGBT community marching down Fifth Avenue as gay pride month comes to an end. Continuing with the theme of gay pride, here is Playbill Magazine's Top Ten Gay Plays according by Ben Rimalower. Most I think have been made into films.

10. Beautiful Thing by Jonathan Harvey
09. Love! Valour! Compassion! by Terrence McNally
08. Jeffrey by Paul Rudnick
07. Hedwig and the Angry Inch by Steven Trask and John Cameron Mitchell
06. Torch Song Trilogy by Harvey Fierstein
05. Bent by Martin Sherman
04. Falsettos by William Finn and James Lapine
03. The Boys in the Band by Mart Crowley
02. The Normal Heart by Larry Kramer
01. Angels in America by Tony Kushner

Some pretty good gay themed plays recently on the NYC stage from my Roll include: 

The Nance 
The Laramie Project
Wild With Happy
The Cockfight Play
Sons of the Prophet
Next Fall
