Event Equal Means Equal Dates/Times August 26, 2016 @ 7:30PM Description EQUAL MEANS EQUAL is an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. By following both real life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez shows how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace matters to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, the healthcare system and the legal system.

Comedy: Will Durst in Elect to Laugh 2016. Oct. 8, 2016. 8pm

Event Will Durst in Elect to Laugh 2016 Dates/Times October 8, 2016 @ 8PM Description ELECT TO LAUGH with Will Durst is a hysterical hybrid chasing down the presidential election cycle like white on rice with material as up to date as the latest tweet from DC. It will blend monologues and commentary and perhaps the occasional rant. The show’s intent is to blur the traditional boundaries between stand-up comedy and theater. Through innovation, experimentation, and a ravenous appetite for accessing the topical via the jugular, Durst is out to prove that jokes are not the enemy. With descendants of Mark Twain, George Carlin, and Spalding Gray, Durst will twist the rhythm of stand-up with poetry, punditry, and puzzles o’plenty, planting the production solidly in the strictures and structures of a deconstructed one-man show. Or solo performance piece. Whatever. With a single aim: to mock and scoff and taunt, but with taste. Consider it political comedy for people who don’t like politics.
