The 2011 - 2012 Season: Love/Alienation

Memberships and season tickets are now available!  

2011 - 2012 is the season of Love/Alienation: it’s about passion, loneliness, the exaltation and desperation of desire, the excitement and frustration of the search for connection - with each other, with the world, with the Universe.

 

The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told by Paul Rudnick
Don your gay apparel for the holidays and come see Paul Rudnick's gleefully outrageous reinterpretation of Creation featuring Adam and Steve - and Jane and Mabel! These innocently bawdy Garden-dwellers are on a journey of wonder and exploration, from their bodily functions to the names of the animals and, ultimately, to the nature of their relationship with their Creator. Act II finds these same characters at home in modern-day Manhattan, facing more down-to-earth issues: one of them is dying, and one is about to give birth. At once provocative and reverent, uproarious and deeply touching, this nativity tale is sure to open your heart this season. Contains adult language, nudity and sexual situations. This production is dedicated to the late Tony Babin, former Star Bar board member, founder of Upstart Performing Ensemble and creator of the Gay & Lesbian Theatre Festival, one of the first of its kind in the country.
December 8, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18 & 20, 2011 - TWO WEEKS ONLY! SPECIAL ENCORE PERFORMANCE DECEMBER 20 at 8PM! Thurs-Fri-Sat @8, Sundays @4. Sunday shows are pay-what-you-can! 

An Empty Plate in the Café du Grand Boeuf by Michael Hollinger
This homage to Hemingway brings us another larger-than-life character: Victor may not be The Most Interesting Man in the World, but he's quite an enigma nonetheless. He owns the elegant Café du Grand Boeuf in Paris: sumptuously stocked and poised for year-round service… and open only to him. He arrives on this evening in 1961 fresh from the bullfights in Madrid, despondent over love, and announces to his horrified staff that he intends to commit suicide there, in the restaurant - by starving himself to death.
January 27 -February 12, 2012

Othello, the Moor of Venice by William Shakespeare
Local scene sensation George Spencer (Bug, 2011) is the title role in Shakespeare's brooding, volatile tragedy of passion and betrayal. Star Bar has an intense vision for this searing season finale.
June 1 - 17, 2012
