Wednesday, August 24 Summer de Amor y Obsesión Mexican-Ecuadorian-American singer Gabriela Crowe stars in a cabaret show that uses opera, romantic Latin boleros and 60’s pop to depict a doomed love affair that hurts so good. She is accompanied by the TC4 (from The Damselles), master flamenco guitarists, back-up singers and tango dancers.
Starts Friday, August 26 Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead by Bert V. Royal Good Grief! Wonder whatever happened to your beloved “Peanuts Gang”? We follow the crew a decade later in this hilarious yet touching parody, addressing the dramas and angst of their adolescence. When CB’s dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of this group’s bullying, offers CB a peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that’s both haunting and hopeful.
