City and Out West 2011 present Beyond Brokeback: A Staged Reading with Music

The City through its Arts & Cultural Affairs Commission, Lesbian and Gay Advisory Board and Out West 2011 will present an expanded version of Beyond Brokeback: A Staged Reading with Music with a staged reading of messages, essays, poetry, and music inspired by the landmark film Brokeback Mountain as part of the City of West Hollywood’s annual One City/One Pride Culture Series. The event which will be held on Saturday, June 25, 2011 at 7 p.m. in Fiesta Hall at Plummer Park, 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard is free. The public is welcome, and reservations are not required. For more information visit www.weho.org/pride 

Beyond Brokeback: A Staged Reading with Music was first developed and performed at the Autry National Center last December as part of its acclaimed “Out West at the Autry” series and in commemoration of the 5th Anniversary of Brokeback Mountain. Beyond Brokeback: A Staged Reading with Music was most recently performed by the Theatre and Dance Department of the University of Wyoming in Laramie for the Shepard Symposium on Social Justice in April and is scheduled to be presented by Chicago’s Roosevelt University in its 3,700 seat historic Auditorium Theatre on Sunday, November 13, 2011 directed by David Zak. Dates with other national venues are currently in negotiation.

Wish I could be there to see it.
It’s a movie about love that knows no boundaries and loneliness that knows no relief

I'm buying my tickets on Friday, when I get paid.

Is there a list of who is attending at all?

No not yet, but I was thinking of starting a thread about it.

I am, John, you, Debbie, Fritz, Nellie, (I believe), maybe Trish.

Unless something has changed, Nellie said she wants to be there, at least for parts of it.

I know two other people who said they want to come, but it's not definite yet.

I looked into flight tickets today, but they're way too much.   >:( :( :-\

I have never read your guys' book.  It sounds awesome though.  I don't think I have ever really heard of a book written by multiple  persons who were touched by a hugely popular film before.  It's interesting that BBM inspired that kind of reaction for you all. How did critics react to your book.  I hope some of them enjoyed it at least.

Reviews on sites like Amazon seemed to be pretty positive.  You can order the book through there.  In fact, if you scroll down to the very bottom of the page, you'll see a bunch of links with Jack & Ennis' image.  One reads "The Ultimate Amazon Collection" and that will take you to our Amazon store.  If you order anything there through that link, the forum gets some proceeds.

Thanks, maybe I will someday.
