Dress Suits to Hire and the Landscape of Queer UrbanityPerformance and the City (2009)
As the story goes, the only good queer is an urban queer. But does the LGBTQ population of America really want to cede all that wide open space to straight-laced (and often violent) ideologies? The work of Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver has consistently challenged the perceived boundaries of lesbian experience; in this paper, I theorize the queer geography of their OBIE-winning hit, Dress Suits to Hire, via its 2005 anniversary revival in Austin, Texas.
