Experience an amazing night of high-flying feats and stunning imagery from Cirque du Soleil. This magical romance, inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest, takes you to a mysterious island where goddesses walk the land and the rhythm of life is ruled by the cycles of the moon. The daughter of Queen Prospera is undergoing the rituals of her coming-of-age ceremony when a group of young men, caught up in a storm, become stranded on the island. Prospera's daughter falls in love with one of the brave sailors, but the two lovers must overcome many trials and setbacks before finding peace together. As the story unfolds, the dazzling arts of Cirque du Soleil illustrate the tale. The island world of Amaluna bursts to life with jugglers, aerial performers, dancers, unicyclists and much more.

By Kate Moira Ryan
Directed by Ike Schambelan
In Bass for Picasso, amputee and food writer for the New York Times, Francesca Danieli, throws a dinner party for her friends recreating recipes from the Alice B. Toklas cookbook. The guest list includes Pilar, her multilingual art detective lover, who has spent time in Guantanamo for visa problems; Bricka Matson, a lesbian widow with a small child and Republican in-laws who are trying to gain custody; Joe, an OB/GYN whose lover is a geographically challenged crystal meth addict; and Kev, a playwright who has recently fallen off the wagon and written a soon-to-open Off-Broadway play about all of them. It’s an insanely funny, irreverent 90-minute look at gay and lesbian life in the new millennium.
Playwright Kate Moira Ryan — author of 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother, The Beebo Brinker Chronicles, Otma, Cavedweller and most recently Mommy Queerest — has crafted a funny, deeply touching look inside the life of five driven New Yorkers, including a woman whose disability is a part of her life, but does not define it. That’s the way it works for so many of the 54,000,000 Americans, nearly 20% of all U.S. citizens, who deal with a disability.
