I loved the 2010 MCC production of "The Pride" directed by Joe Mantello and starring Ben Whishaw as Oliver and Hugh Dancy as Philip. I also saw a nifty white-box production at Alchemical on 14th Street in 2013 with Corey Camperchioli as Oliver. Sam Underwood's Fundamental Theater did a reading in 2014 with Sam and Anthony Rapp. I did not see it, but in an email, Sam Underwood wrote, "The Pride is a gorgeously-drawn elliptical play that alternates between two very distinct time periods and the lives of three characters whose fate is written by their eras." Before the 2010 MCC production, I attended a discussion at the LGBT Center with Joe Mantello and Alexi Kaye Campbell in which director and author told how the Pride movement aided their careers. Ben Whishaw was scheduled to participate, but was a no-show. He was not yet publicly out, but I don't know if that had anything to do with his absence.
