Once upon a time in the Chelsea Hotel… “Jason and Shirley” re-imagines the electrifying, take-no-prisoners 1966 power struggle between Jason Holliday (Jack Waters), a trailblazing black gay queen and Shirley Clarke (Sarah Schulman), a Jewish, female, Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker, over a 12-hour marathon filming session that gave rise to Clarke’s iconic documentary “Portrait of Jason.”‘
