Spectrum Dance Theater breaks in the new minimalist performance space at the Tacoma Armory with Donald Byrd's modern masterwork Love. Set to Benjamin Britten's Cello Suites, the piece explores the emotional complexities of intimate relationships through the expressive lifts and leaps of contemporary dance. Spectrum's artistic director and choreographer Donald Byrd, a Tony nominee for The Color Purple, is a true legend of modern dance who's created more than 80 works, including pieces for such prestigious organizations as the Alvin Ailey Company and The Joffrey Ballet. CityArts Magazine raves about a prior performance of Love, "Every dancer in the company was spellbinding -- full of elegance and technique and deep emotional response." Learn More

Be there for the introduction of Beebo Brinker: one of the most iconic characters of all lesbian pulp fiction. Called “The Queen of Lesbian Pulp Fiction,” Ann Bannon is best known for her landmark series of five original paperback novels known as The Beebo Brinker Chronicles. Written from 1957 to 1962, they tell the stories of young lesbians in love and lust in the gay mecca of New York.
Inspired by these stories, this seriously sexy cabaret will immerse audiences in an erotic 1950s Greenwich Village underground gay-bar rife with pin-ups, intelligent burlesque, live music and an interactive cast. With a retro fashion show, live band, classic film clips from the fifties, and a titillating medley of song, burlesque, theatre and music, this cabaret offers devilishly dirty entertainment for gay and straight audiences alike … and everything in between!
