ARMISTEAD MAUPIN’S FURTHER TALES OF THE CITY

The last of the three miniseries based on the Tales books was co-written by Maupin and James Lecesne and received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Miniseries. Though it follows the adventure-driven storyline of the original novel, it offers some noteworthy additions and elaborations—with the author’s blessing.

● The closeted movie star inspired by Maupin’s friendship with Rock Hudson is now called Cage Tyler, since his name was indicated only by blanks in the novel.

Unlike the novel, the miniseries provides a love interest for Anna Madrigal. Olympia Dukakis had requested this change herself but later joked that Maupin had given her more—and less—than she had bargained for.

● Due to the popularity of Jackie Burroughs in the role of Mother Mucca, Maupin departs from the novel and brings the cranky old madam back for another round.
