Film | Keith Haring: Street Art Boy (2020), The Story of the Pioneer Artist (virtual)


Explore the definitive story of international art sensation Keith Haring (1958-1990) who blazed a trail through the art scene of ‘80s New York and revolutionized the worlds of pop culture and fine art. The film features previously unheard interviews with Haring. Haring's work grew to popularity from his spontaneous drawings in New York City subways—chalk outlines of figures, dogs, and other stylized images on blank black advertising-space backgrounds. After public recognition he created larger scale works, such as colorful murals, many of them commissioned. His imagery has "become a widely recognized visual language." In 2019, Haring was one of the inaugural fifty American "pioneers, trailblazers, and heroes" inducted on the National LGBTQ Wall of Honor within the Stonewall National Monument in NYC's Stonewall Inn.

Play | Who's Holiday! with a Broadway Actress: "a raunchy riff on Dr Seuss's yuletide tale... brassy, very funny" (virtual)


Who's Holiday! tells the story of a middle-aged Cindy Lou Who, now residing in a beaten-down trailer in the snowy hills of Mount Crumpit. As she prepares to host a Christmas Eve party for her friends, she recalls her own perspective of that fateful night when she first met the Grinch, and the strange turn of events her life has taken for the past 40 years. The New York Times called the play "a raunchy riff on Dr Seuss's yuletide tale ... brassy, very funny ... a holiday offering that dirties up Christmas while ultimately reveling in its spirit." Starring Lesli Margherita (Broadway's Matilda The Musical, London West End's Zorro) Written by Matthew Lombardo (Broadway's High) Directed by Carl Andress Filmed during the show's 2017 Off-Broadway run at the Westside Theatre.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely in this delicious Jacobean tragicomedy.

But it's been awhile since Arbaces has seen Panthea, and when he does, he is seized with incestuous passion. Arbaces resists this forbidden love with all his might -- until she professes she loves him too! But now, what to do about Tigranes? By Beaumont and Fletcher Directed by Jose Zayas
