What you missed from last month’s episode:
Juliana shows Al how little the “country girl” really knows about life in the big city. Openly gay men and women at Juliana’s Christmas party, Al’s first time at the rambunctious club owned by Madame Spivy (is that Tallulah Bankhead sitting in Spivy’s lap?!) and now Juliana wants Al to dress in trousers? Life really has changed for our narrator.
Meanwhile, the glamorous Juliana is on edge about anyone making a dig at her bumpy road to stardom, even though Al believes she can help. But despite their steamy history, Al and Juliana don’t share the same idea of “intimacy”. When Al realizes Juliana will be spending Christmas with someone else – the androgynous Andy- she’s shaken. And when Juliana suggests finding Al “a nice boy” to introduce her to…well, you’ll just have to see what happens next on this month’s episode of JULIANA

*********
It’s 1941 and ALICE HUFFMAN—who prefers to be called Al, played by Molly Collier—and her childhood friends come from the potato fields of Long Island to New York City to make it on the Broadway stage. Al meets Juliana (played by Annie-Sage Whitehurst), a perpetually-on-the-brink-of-stardom cabaret singer, and she is thrust into a world of “deviates” as her life is propelled in a direction she never could have imagined back home in the country.
