backstage in Palm Springs
Here it is friends. The glamour behind the scenes. Or is it just another weekend in the Hamptons?
I just wanted to say a few words about the future of the show, as it stands as of this morning. We are scheduled to do a tour of Oedipus at Palm Springs in 2006. This will be in the fall and so far the exact dates are undetermined but I can tell you that they include a visit to our fabulous friends in Boston, The Theater Offensive and our far northwestern cousins, the fine folks at Out North in Anchorage! Yes, we are taking this show deep into Red Sox territory and all the way to Alaska!
You may ask, why Boston and Anchorage? So let me tell you. These two fantastic theaters are actually partners in commissioning this play with another fabulous organization called the National Performance Network, which you should all know about (npnweb.org). NPN granted us some very very important money to create the show and tour it. And the best part of the deal is that we then get to take the play to the theaters that commissioned it! We hope to have more touring come together in the next several months but if you are lucky enough to live in Anchorage or Boston, keep your eyes peeled for signs of the Lesbian Brothers and come see what all the fuss is about.
As a artist friend visiting from Europe said "this is the first time I have seen so many lesbians on stage together!"
Hope you are all enjoying this summer day, wherever you may be. I am on my way out for a little bike ride with my Brother Peg to go look at the Hudson and enjoy Manhattan's Riviera.
