Stage West - Bootycandy
August 13 through September 11
By Robert O'Hara
Stage West presents Robert O'Hara's incendiary comedy Bootycandy. Growing up black and growing up gay: each presents a unique set of difficulties and challenges. Growing up black AND gay? Those are some tricky waters to navigate, and are the focus of Robert O'Hara's fearlessly outrageous Bootycandy, beginning its 5-week run at Stage West on Thursday, August 11. Sutter has always known he was different-he loves musicals, and dancing to Michael Jackson tunes.

Identity  
Amon Carter Museum - Identity
April 30, 2016–October 9, 2016
Identity explores how identity in American culture is often as much about how people present themselves to the world as it is externally determined. Exploring community, celebrity, and individual identity through portraiture from the Amon Carter's permanent collection, the exhibition highlights the exciting new acquisitions of Sedrick Huckaby's The 99% and Glenn Ligon's print series Runaways. Whereas Huckaby engaged with and depicted 101 members of his neighborhood to uncover how their individual personalities were reflective of a larger community identity, Ligon explored the notion that individual identity is often culturally determined.

Casa Mañana - Jesus Christ Superstar
September 10 - September 18, 2016
A global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, Jesus Christ Superstar is a timeless work of Christ’s final days, but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot.

Propelled by a stirring score by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Tim Rice, Jesus Christ Superstar dramatizes this series of events with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. This show is suitable for most audiences.

Isaac's Eye by Lucas Hnath  
Amphibian Stage Productions - Crossing the Line
Thursday, July 14, 2016 to Sunday, August 7, 2016
By Kieran Lynn
When a relaxing afternoon walk turns into a wacky international crisis, lovebirds Arthur and Olivia have no choice but to play by the absurd rules. The two must closely rely on each other to escape the consequences of a ridiculous policy, but a comically by-the-book government official may push them to the brink of breaking up. Crossing the Line is a hilarious play about the physical and emotional lines we draw and how they divide and define us.
