THE PEOPLE DOWNSTAIRS

By Natalie Symons

American Stage

March 11 – April 5, 2020

Directed by Chris Crawford

 

In Buffalo NY, Miles, an aging funeral home custodian lives with his middle-aged daughter Mabel, who spends her days writing letters to prison inmates. When a court-appointed guardian threatens to take away their home, Miles sets out to set Mabel up with Todd, an inept mortician. It is a father’s fierce determination not to accept his daughter’s fate that ignites an endearing human comedy about love, loss, loneliness, and the healing power of laughter.

Share this story:

Kim Russo (also known as “Kim The Happy Medium”), the host of LMN’s The Haunting Of … and the upcoming Psychic Intervention, has been able to see the world of spirits since the age of nine, often seeing random spirits in her bedroom or walking home with her from school. Not knowing what they wanted but destined to learn, Kim’s fears turned into comfort as she discovered her gift. Now she speaks to them more than she speaks to the living on some days as she continues to utilize her abilities to help and heal those in need. “Kim Russo, the best medium this side of the other side” (New York Post).

VIP add-on tickets are available and include a post-show meet-and-greet with Kim Russo. NO PERSONAL READINGS. Call the Ticket Sales Office at (813) 229-7827 for details.

2016 WAVE Awards Spotlight: Parliament House

From the carnival-like atmosphere of Sunday T-Dance bacchanalia and deep into the fuzzy navels back in the Bear Den, the Parliament house has been an excursion, a home, a habit, a place to find merriment day and night for more than four decades, and, despite a year of wildly varying expectations, it isn’t going anywhere. Whether functioning as a resort for visiting LGBT folks or as a venue for huge productions aimed at the local glee club, the compound rarely disappoints. Part of the reason for that, co-owner Susan Unger says, is that there aren’t any lines in the sand, not even in that sand which sits out back on Rock Lake.

“I think it’s the inclusiveness of everybody,” she says. “Doesn’t matter if you’re gay, straight, bi or trans, you’re welcome here.”

Conversion therapy finds new home in Israel

IsraeliStarJerusalem (AP) – A leading American Jewish group promoting therapy it said could turn gays to heterosexuals was ordered shut by a New Jersey court, amid growing efforts in the U.S. to curb the generally discredited practice. But therapists with ties to the shuttered group say they have found a haven for their work in Israel.

Israel’s Health Ministry advises against so-called “gay conversion” or “reparative” therapy, calling it scientifically dubious and potentially dangerous, but no law limits it. In Israel, practitioners say their services are in demand, mostly by Orthodox Jewish men trying to reduce their same-sex attractions so they can marry women and raise a traditional family according to their conservative religious values.

Viewpoint: Positive living, Ho Ho Homo Home for the Holidays

GregStemmHeadshotIf we were a bunch of Pagan Romans marking their end of year holiday celebrations, we’d wish each other a “Happy Saturnalia”, get drunk, smoke a bunch of weed and have a huge orgy.

Since I can’t possibly imagine any of you celebrating like that (OK, well maybe one or two of you) we are left with the specter of shlepping our gay appareled buns to dreaded holiday family gatherings.
