0604 THEATER GayFest Flag

Don't know where the error lies, but we will take responsibility for not getting this information to you sooner: GayFest 2009 started last night. You can still catch most of the schedule, starting tonight.

Here's the info, straight from the press release.

June 4, 2009, 7:00 pm
The Legacy
by Adam Siegel (New York Premiere)
Directed by Martin Casella
Featuring Ian Kahn, Larry Keith and Jack Wetherall
A famous children's author and illustrator has rarely seen his son since walking out on his family to live with another man more than forty years ago. The son’s appearance at his father's doorstep sets in motion a dramatic chain of events that exposes a family's betrayals and secrets as it struggles to come to terms with its past. Winner of the 2008 New Play Festival, South Carolina’s Center Stage

Special Event:
June 6, 2009, 7:30 pm and 10:30 pm
Del Shores The Storyteller
With Guest Appearance by Rue McClanahan
Del Shores is best known for his 2001 cult classic film Sordid Lives which was adapted by Shores for the small screen and premiered on MTV/LOGO, garnering rave reviews for Shores and the all-star cast (Rue McClanahan, Olivia Newton-John, Caroline Rhea, Leslie Jordan and Beth Grant) and becoming their biggest hit to date. The series is currently syndicated internationally in over a dozen countries.

Other plays by Shores include his GLAAD award-winning Southern Baptist Sissies; the Ovation and Los Angeles Drama Critics’ Circle Award-winning The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife; and the now classic Daddy’s Dyin’ (Who’s Got The Will?) for which Shores executive produced and adapted the screenplay for the 1990 MGM film. He has also written and produced for many TV shows most notably Dharma & Greg and Queer as Folk.
