By: Jimmy Camicia with Introduction by Michael Smith Fast Books 215 pages CA$20 + S&H * Signed by the author!
For nearly thirty years, New York City's fabulously gay theater troupe the Hot Peaches astonished audiences in Manhattan, Amsterdam, London and Berlin. In this refreshing memoir, Jimmy Camicia, the company's founder, playwright, director and reluctant star, exposes the gritty, glamorous story of international alternative theater and its contribution to the gay cultural revolution.
This frank, funny illustrated account introduces the unique characters who inspired the author – and sometimes broke his heart.
Jimmy Camicia is the author of many plays and (as Jimmy Centola) the underground performance poetry classic The Divas of Sheridan Square.
