LATINO THEATRE PROJECTS & BURIEN LITTLE THEATRE - BEAUTY OF THE FATHER
AUGUST 2-25

On Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and on Sundays at 2 p.m., from August 2 through August 25, Latino Theatre Projects presents Beauty of the Father by Pulitizer Prize-winner Nilo Cruz at Burien Little Theatre (14501 Fourth Ave. S., Burien).

In Beauty of the Father, a young American woman travels to Spain to meet her long-estranged Gay artist father and falls for his Moroccan companion. Cruz explores the conflict between love and sacrifice in an unrequited love triangle in Andalusia, where the restless ghost of Spanish poet/playwright Federico Garcia Lorca wanders the streets, conversing with the living.

Lorca is considered the premier writer in Spanish history. During the Spanish Civil War, he was executed by General Franco's national security forces because of his leftist politics and because he was well-known to be a homosexual. After his death, he was martyred to their cause by the Republicans and, in current times, is revered by Spain's Gay community.

It is believed that some of Lorca's best poems were written about various Gay lovers. However, he never found true love before he was murdered. Cruz brings his ghost into the play to provide a kindred spirit for the artist Emiliano as he grapples with learning to be a father again and discovers that his daughter and his Gay lover have become involved.

Tickets: $7-$20. Check out special opening weekend ticket deals. 206-242-5180; www.latinotheatreprojects.org; www.burienlittletheatre.org

GAY CITY ARTS - 'TO TAKE THIS RISK'
AUGUST 8-SEPTEMBER 9

From August 8-September 9, Gay City Arts (517 E. Pike St.) presents 'To Take This Risk,' an exhibition of work by Grant Rehnberg. (An artist's reception will be held Thursday, August 8, from 6-9 p.m.)

Grant Rehnberg, a self-taught collage and mixed-media artist, draws inspiration from lost images (vintage Gay porn, old photos, archaic maps, discarded medical textbooks). Through alteration and fresh juxtaposition, these transformed images make the invisible visible, the forgotten remembered. 'To Take This Risk' is one Queer's response to life's 'crippling hurt' and restorative love. Grant strives to expose both the very real risks and infinitely more beautiful rewards of living (and loving) authentically.

'There is no intensity of love or feeling that does not involve the risk of crippling hurt. It is a duty to take this risk, to love and feel without defense or reserve.' (William S. Burroughs)

'To Take This Risk' is presented in conjunction with Gay City Arts, through which Gay City collaborates with local LGBT artists to galvanize an audience for Queer arts, foster the development of LGBT artists, and facilitate excellence across a wide range of disciplines, including theater, music, dance, fim, spoken word, literary and visual arts.
