Dean Ghaffari brings to life Sal Mineo and a host of characters instrumental in his journey in this
energetic, historical backstage view of one of America’s greatest actors and first Gay Icons.
Sal Mineo was a two-time Oscar nominated actor, Golden Globe winner and a gold record-selling pop singer. He is best remembered for his portrayal of “Plato” alongside James Dean in the Classic “Rebel Without a Cause”. A role he was Oscar nominated for (at that time, he was the youngest actor ever nominated).
Ahead of the times, Sal Mineo truly was a “Rebel With a Cause”. He was a prominent figure for gay rights before he was tragically murdered. Some say his murder was directly related to his gay activism. Or perhaps a spurned lover, no one will ever really know.
