5. THEATER: Prototype Festival
Prototype: Opera/Theatre/Now, a joint effort of Beth Morrison Projects and New York City arts center Here (no relation to The Advocate’s parent company), offers new musical plays and operas that are bound to have much of interest to LGBT audiences. Running from Wednesday through January 19, the festival features Thumbprint, a fact-based world premiere work about a Pakistani woman seeking justice after she is gang-raped; Paul’s Case (pictured above), in which a young “dandy” flees his gritty Pittsburgh neighborhood for the high life of Gilded Age New York; Angel’s Bone, portraying two fallen angels adjusting to life on earth and falling victim to exploitation; Have a Good Day, exploring the inner lives of cashiers in a shopping center; the double bill Visitations: “Thedokia” and “The War Reporter,” the first dealing with auditory hallucinations, the second with a real-life war correspondent haunted by a dead soldier; plus musical performances and post-show discussions. Performance venues include Here and other New York theaters; click here for more information. — Trudy Ring
