OUTshine Film Festival

Thursday, Apr 25, 2019 various times - English

The Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival started in 1998; the Fort Lauderdale Gay & Lesbian Film Festival in 2008. Both were brought together under one brand to become The MiFo LGBT Film Festival in 2015, with a seasonal event serving each city. Critically and internationally acclaimed, it serves as a platform for numerous premiers and is the largest LGBT cultural arts event in South Florida.

Because of its increasing popularity and success, MiFo has been rechristened to the OUTSHINE Film Festival, underscoring its brightness, broad appeal and dynamic multi-cultural location. Outshine is everything you want in a film festival... inviting, glowing, and eclipsing all others before it. Our mission is to inspire, entertain, and educate; encouraging a sense of community through international and culturally diverse film, video, and other media that offer historical and contemporary perspectives on the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender experience.

OUTrageous. OUTspoken. And OUTstanding in what we deliver. Join us in 2019 for our 21st Annual Miami Edition, April 18-28 and 11th Annual Fort Lauderdale Edition, October 10-20.

Marilyn

Thursday, Apr 25, 2019 at 9:00 PM - English

Marcos and his family work as ranch hands. His father and brother handle the heavier tasks while Marcos stays home near his mother. Each has a path to follow, yet Marcos bides his time waiting for Carnival, the one moment where he can let his true self out to shine. Marilyn is a nuanced story of rural oppression, prejudice, and homophobia where characters are pushed to their limits to an unavoidable and desperate conclusion. Based on a shocking real case, Walter Rodriguez gives a powerful breakthrough lead performance as a boy confronted with the impossibility of being who he wants to be.

Always Patsy Cline by Ted Swindley

Thursday, Apr 25, 2019 at 7:30 PM - English

The Wick Theatre is delighted to present Always...Patsy Cline, based on the true story of legendary country artist Patsy Cline's friendship with Houston housewife, Louise Seger. Tickets are $75-$85, website or call the box office.

Louise Seger met her idol in 1961, when Cline went to Houston for a show. Louis arrived early and, by coincidence, met Cline who was traveling alone. They immediately struck up a friendship and over a pot of strong coffee, the women chatted about their common concerns. When Cline left for Dallas, Louise never expected to hear from her idol again. But, a pen-pal relationship followed and provides much of the show's plot.

Show more >>

The play focuses on the fateful evening in 1963 at Houston's Esquire Ballroom when Louis hears of Cline's death in a plane crash. Louis supplies a narrative while Cline floats in and out of the set singing tunes that made her famous Anytime, Walkin' After Midnight, She's Got You, Sweet Dreams, and Crazy to name a few. This brilliant show offers fans a chance to look back, while giving new fans an idea of what experiencing Patsy Cline was like and what she meant to her original fans.

The show stars Terri Dixon and Lourelene Snedeker and is directed by Dom Ruggiero, with musical direction by Caryl Fantel.
