Continental leva os espectadores numa viagem no tempo, de volta à Nova Iorque sexualmente ousada de 1968, quando o famoso Continental Baths abriu as suas portas. Este espaço de deboche (anunciado como um sítio "para homens sofisticados") acabou por transcender a identidade sexual e tornou-se um farol cultural dos belos e famosos. Não só recebia os, agora poderosos, homossexuais de todas as formas e tamanhos, ansiosos por aproveitar as suas liberdades sexuais num local sofisticado, como trazia tanto alta como baixa cultura ao palco da sauna semana após semana, tornando-se fundamental nas carreiras de ícones dos anos 60 e 70 como Bette Midler e Barry Manilow.

Continental takes viewers back in time to the sexually charged New York of 1968, when the notorious Continental Baths opened its doors. This groundbreaking den of debauchery (advertised as a place "for sophisticated men only") came to transcend sexual identity and became a cultural beacon to the hip, beautiful and infamous. Not only host to newly-empowered gay men of all shapes and sizes, eager to take full advantage of their sexual freedoms at a lavish venue, the Continental brought both high and low culture to the bathhouse's stage week after week, becoming instrumental in the careers of 60s and 70s icons like Bette Midler and Barry Manilow.
