Obie Award winner Marc Wolf's solo show, Another American: Asking and Telling, is currently playing an extended run at the DR2 Theatre. The show was originally presented by The New Group in the late 1990s, but the play, based on over 150 interviews with straight, gay and lesbian military personnel, in addition to civil rights lawyers, federal judges, professors and politicians, remains timely, as the ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in the military was upheld in Congress Sept. 21 after a day of filibustering on the issue.

An interview with Wolf and several of the people whose interviews inspired his play aired on CNN's "Newstand" during the play's original run. Watching it today provides a fascinating opportunity for thinking about how times have changed, and how they have stayed the same.

Another American plays at the DR2 Theatre through Oct. 4.
