With The Inheritance beginning performances on Broadway, look back at shows that brought stories of the LGBTQ+ community to the stage.
The Inheritance, Matthew Lopez’s Olivier Award-winning exploration of gay history, began performances on Broadway September 27 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. Loosely inspired by E. M. Forster’s Howards End, the two-part play is set in New York City a generation after the HIV/AIDS crisis of the ‘80s and ‘90s, as a group of gay men struggle to connect to the past and maintain a sense of history. The production is set to open November 17.
