It s 1941 and Alice Al Huffman comes from the potato fields of Long Island with her beau, her best girlfriend and her girlfriend s beau to make it on the Broadway stage only to find she has no talent. She meets Max, a former producer, talent manager and possible con man who introduces her to the glamorous, perpetually on the brink of stardom night club singer, Juliana. Juliana s voice sounds to Al like warm milk slipping down the whole of my body. Al is increasingly drawn into a secret gay underworld of men who wear dresses and women who smoke cigars, while her childhood friends continue in their normal lives. Al glides easily between the two worlds until the worlds collide."show more
