A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three estranged sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the Weston clan unexpectedly reunites at the family homestead in Osage County, Oklahoma after the disappearance of their father, a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling confrontations breaks loose. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, acid-tongued Weston matriarch, and you've got August: Osage County — a play that unflinchingly (and uproariously) exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.
The Gibson Theater / Saturday, June 15, 9pm
A whacked-out cabaret, a miasma of entertainment. Evening may contain: beautiful torch songs, insane political rants, short new works, sword-swallowers, interviews with vegetables, fully-staged musical numbers, puppetry, story-telling, lounge singers, clowning, belly dancers, peanuts, perhaps even something as groundbreaking as poetry or short stories read without affect.
...and YOU! Still looking for spectacular acts to join the fun!
It's Live Arts Late Night. An old/new tradition of regular one-night stands.

Perennially perky Elle Woods is a girl who loves to be pampered and shop for the latest all-pink outfits. But when her boyfriend dumps her for someone "more serious," Elle sets out to win him back by putting down the credit card and hitting the books. Ready to revamp her image, Elle goes where no Delta Nu sorority girl has gone before: Harvard Law. From the sorority house to the Halls of Justice, our heroine proves that being yourself and going after what you want never goes out of style.
