Angels in America: Part One: Millennium Approaches

Written by Tony Kushner
Directed by Brian Rivera
Produced by Lambda Players

In the mid-80s, a delirious AIDS patient is kept alive by the skill, cynical wit, and tough love of an ex-drag queen nurse. Their story is part of an apocalyptic (and sometimes comic) tale that deconstructs America, with religion and relationships under fire, and death everywhere. Throughout it all, an angel waits in the wings, ready to fall.

This epic story takes place during the Ronald Reagan years, an era of AIDS un-awareness, and the tightly shut gay closet. It reveals history痴 gritty secrets in a mad swirl of irony, intense drama, outrageous humor, and unexpected twists and turns. An hopeful meditation on faith, morality, love and sex.

In 1993, Angels won a Pulitzer Prize in drama (for Part One 溺illennium Approaches) as well as a Drama Desk award for Best Play, a New York Drama Critics Circle award for Best Play, and a Tony award for Best Play.

Cast includes: Eric Baldwin, Kevin Caravalho, Jes Gonzales, Maggie Hollinbeck, Eddie Jacson, Evan Johnson, Martha Omiyo Kight.

Written by Dee Jae Cox
Original Songs by Michele Weiss
Directed by Kelly Ann Ford
Produced by LA Women痴 Theatre Project, Theatre Planners, in association with Lilly Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center

In 1929, some kinds of love could get you killed. A black blues singer and a wealthy, white socialite find that racism isn稚 the only obstacle in their relationship. The Stock Market crash, visions derived from chicken bones and long guarded family secrets, weave together a drama infused with the passion of blues music and the dangers of forbidden love.

New Orleans voodoo and Harlem blues come together as sultry lovers on a hot summer痴 night. The spell is sweet and the fever high during the end of this roaring era, as a new and forbidden love begins. While a new tradition in music was being born, some family secrets should have stayed buried.

Cast includes: Sweet Baby J誕i, Aynsley Bubbico, Deborah Kellar, Malik B. El Amin, Alan Brooks, Melinda Edmondson, Alan Keith Caldwell, Terrence Tatum.

敵lad I didn稚 miss this. I had seen the reading at the village and it was one of the best readings I had ever been to; the staged production exceeded that. It has a period flavor, voodoo, and magic and wonderful singing, and a hot woman-to-woman relationship. - Bill Kaiser, Purple Circuit

Written by Carol Polcovar
Directed by David Gaard
Produced by The Entertainment Agora in association with Nick Curto & All Out Arts, Inc.

On June 27, 1969, the New York Police raided The Stonewall, a routine made largely to collect protection money as much as to harass lesbians, gay men, and transsexuals. They were shocked when the patrons resisted and their raid resulted in a riot that lasted for days. That moment of fighting back inspired gay men and lesbians throughout the country, which resulted in the birth of the modern gay rights movement. The lives of lesbian, gay, bi, and transsexual people around the world were forever changed.

Poet, playwright and political activist Carol Polcovar spent two years interviewing participants in, and observers of, the 1969 Stone Wall Rebellion. From these interviews she created this award-winning evening of theater.

Cast includes: Dolores Kenan, Michael Buoni, Aaron King, Mary Murphy.

Direction by Simon Gross and Peter Kosta
Produced PanArts

When the actor playing Cinderella fails to arrive, the Fairy Godmother panics and persuades well-known drag artiste Bette Rinse to step into the role. Mayhem ensues, with sugar-sweet language thrown out of the window, and the cast hoodwinked by a magic spell into believing that Bette really is Cinderella.

A wicked twist on the traditional fairy tale, Sinderfella is an adult pantomime not suitable for children.

Cast includes: Ed Comley, Simon Gross, Denis Khoroshka, Jay Nelson, Bette Rinse, Sarah Whitlock.
