Jon Sims and David Helvey in LCC's Angels in America

Perhaps no stagework in the past 50 years has had the cultural impact of Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer-winning Angels in America, a two-part play (Millennium Approaches and Perestroika) set in mid-1980s New York and focused on a handful of compelling characters struggling with the broad implications — spiritual, emotional, political, psychological — of the growing AIDS epidemic during the late stages of the Cold War and Reaganomics. Lane Community College’s theater department is tackling Kushner’s masterwork, in separate and overlapping parts, in a production that will highlight the playwright’s fantastical “Theatre of the Fabulous.” LCC Theater faculty lead Brain Haimbach directs part one, and Anna Parks directs an “enhanced reading” of the second part. For fans of the stage and anyone interested in understanding the zeitgeist (both where we were and where we are now), Angels is essential viewing.

Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes plays April 24-May 3 in LCC’s Ragozzino Performance Hall, 4000 E. 30th Ave.: Part One: Millennium Approaches runs 7pm Friday & Saturday, April 24-25, as well as 7pm May 1; Part Two: Perestroika receives an enhanced reading 7pm Thursday, April 30, and 2pm May 3; both plays will be presented Sunday, April 26, starting at 2pm. $5-$10, tickets at 463-5161 or wkly.ws/1x6.

After leaving an old, transplanted hotel in the woods outside Eugene to follow the Grateful Dead, author Kathleen Cremonesi found herself in Europe, riding an ostrich in a circus and falling for Stefano, the elephant trainer. She details her adventures in Love in the Elephant Tent (ECW Press). Cremonesi now lives outside Junction City and she and two other members of her writers’ group, Authors of the Round Table (ARTS), are celebrating the recent publication of their books. In addition to Cremonesi, Danuta Pfeiffer, author of Chiseled: A Memoir of Identity, Duplicity, and Divine Wine (Luminare Press), presents her life — including her stint as a co-host of The 700 Club with Pat Robertson — and her present career as co-owner and operator of Pfeiffer Vineyards and Winery. The third ARTS author, Jacquie “Jax” Manning, will offer up her mystery novel Caribbean Shadows (Luminare Press). There will be a no-host bar, readings, books for sale, music and appetizers.

ARTS present a book launch party for Love in the Elephant Tent 6 pm Saturday, April 25, at Pfeiffer Winery, 25040 Jaeg Rd., Junction City. FREE.

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it!

The calendar lists free events and special, one-time events that charge admission. We list one-time workshops under $15, but do not list ongoing classes or workshops that charge any sort of fee.

The What's Happening Calendar no longer accepts submissions regarding music; please submit these in a separate email to the Music Listings calendar  outlined below.

To list in our calendar: Place the date (example: July 15, 2014)  in the subject line of your message. 

At the top of the message, include briefly and without extra description:

Event name, time, location, address and cost.

Refer to our online calendar listings for the format. For times, am and pm are always lowercased, and we use & instead of and.
