New Review: III

For Back Stage, as part of the New York International Fringe Festival.

One casualty of gay relationships is often the memory of past lives and loves, because until recently such relationships tended to lack offspring. Except to fine-arts scholars, for example, the name Monroe Wheeler — a transformative figure at the Museum of Modern Art — likely doesn't register today in the public consciousness. Nor will writer Glenway Wescott, Wheeler's companion for more than 60 years; nor will photographer George Platt Lynes, Wheeler's other companion during 15 of those years.
