Nominee! 1980 Tony Award, Best Play

MARTIN SHERMAN’S “BENT”. THIS POWERFUL DRAMA IS THE FIRST PLAY CENTERED ON THE NAZI’S USE OF THE HOLOCAUST TO WIPE OUT GAYS. SHERMAN MAKES A CASE THAT GAYS WERE TREATED WORSE THAN JEWS. “BENT” UNFOLDS AS A TRIBUTE TO THE POWER OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT AS IT DEPICTS THE DEFIANCE OF TWO BRAVE SOULS.

“BENT” WAS NOMINATED FOR BOTH A PULITZER & A TONY IN 1980 AND IGNITED CONTROVERSEY WITH ITS SUGGESTION THAT THE GAYS SUFFERED MORE THAN THE JEWS DURING THE HOLOCAUST.
