Courting Mae West

The play "COURTING MAE WEST: Sex, Censorship & Secrets" is based on true events during the 1920s when actress MAE WEST was arrested and jailed in New York City for trying to stage two gay plays on Broadway. Maybe she broke the law - - but the LAW couldn't break HER!

Keeping Up with the Cast

"Courting Mae West" cast member Steven Viola has been busy. After doing such an outstanding job portraying Declan Rourke in the summer production of the play during the Annual Fresh Fruit Festival, Steven Viola took a role in "The Three Sisters" that was performed in a Brooklyn landmark during December 2008. To play a Russian character, Viola grew a beard.
• • Steven called upon the talented Gloria Buccino, who played Peg Rourke in July 2008, to take a role in "The Three Sisters" showcase as well.
• • On 3 January 2009, Steven Viola took multiple roles in a Richard Diamond radio play scripted by Blake Edwards.

Afterwards, there were gifts and gossip and gabbing about the upcoming awards gala in April 2009.
