Get lost in the music.
Set in the 1980s, Pose is a dance musical that explores the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York: the ball culture world, the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe and the downtown social and literary scene. Making television history, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, as well as the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series.
Evan Peters and Kate Mara play New Jersey couple Stan and Patty Bowes, who get sucked into the glamour and intrigue of New York City in the 1980s, as epitomized by Matt Bromley, Stan’s boss. Mj Rodriguez stars as Blanca Rodriguez, who breaks from the House of Abundance and her former house mother Elektra Abundance to form her own “house,” a self-selected family that provides support to LGBTQ youth rejected by their birth families. Together they compete in the Balls - where house members challenge each other in various categories and are judged on their outfits, attitude, or dance skills. Under the watchful eye of Pray Tell, Grandfather to all the children who compete in the house balls, Elektra’s House of Abundance and Blanca’s upstart House of Evangelista face off in what may develop into a legendary rivalry.
