A Tony Award-winning 1994 play by Terrence McNally, Love! Valour! Compassion! follows the lives of several gay men over a single summer.
Adapted into a feature film in 1997, directed by Joe Mantello and starring Jason Alexander, John Glover, Stephen Spinella, Stephen Bogardus, Randy Becker, John Benjamin Hickey, and Justin Kirk. Glover, Bogardus, Becker, Hickey, and Kirk all reprised their original Broadway roles.
Love! Valour! Compassion! contains examples of:
- Cast Full of Gay: Eight gay men, not one of them straight.
- Excited Show Title!: Yes, the exclamation points are necessary.
- Significant Double Casting: John Glover plays both John and James Jekyll, who are narratively opposite sides of the same coin.
