Federico Garca Lorca is celebrated the world over for his poetry, music and plays. Yet at the age of 27, he was still a struggling artist living with his parents, staging puppet plays that were laughed off the stage by the critics. His need for freedom fueled his desire to succeed. In search of duende, his travels through New York and Cuba became a quest for cultural integration and gender acceptance. In the Americas, Lorca shined like a mad and fiery diamond, fusing his cante jondo with Afro-Cuban son to create a new rhythm of powerfully poetic drama.

Loving Repeating: A Musical of Gertrude Stein - The West Coast premiere of the chamber musical by Tony Award winners Stephen Flaherty and Frank Galati, adapted from the writings of Gertrude Stein. A musical about loving life, loving thinking, loving making art, and loving love, Loving Repeating explores Stein's capricious love affair with language, self expression, and her lifelong companion, Alice B. Toklas. Following Stein from her student days in the late 19th century to the height of her artistic era in Paris as one of the 'lost generation,' the distinctive score illuminates Stein's world, bringing fresh perspective to her poetic texts and illuminating her deep love of the way American language perpetually changes to reflect the voices of the people. A perplexing, exhilarating, hilarious, and emotionally giddy musical as unique as Stein herself.

He wants more than anything to be normal, but best friend Stoney thinks Free's gift is a miracle that everyone should see. When Free decides he would rather clean motel rooms than defy gravity for indifferent audiences, he finds that the gift he doesn't want has touched more lives than he realized.
